When Meghan Trainor’s "All About the Bass" got popular, she probably never thought this phrase would be used to describe a post for something called Day 1 CPT. For you to understand what is Day 1 CPT, we should talk about what is CPT first.
CPT, aka "Curricular Practical Training" allows international students to participate in paid internships and receive employment training.
