International Student Job Resources

The job search process in the United States may be challenging for international students since it is sometimes very different from other countries. Searching for a job can be a lengthy, complicated process that is different for  each person. 

The job process requires an individual to be proactive and self-directed, as well as utilize a variety of  information and resources.Job opportunities are dependent upon visa status. Therefore, international students must work with the International Student Services (ISS) Coordinator to ensure compliance with their visa status and follow correct procedures to obtain employment. Career Services cannot provide employment eligibility advice.

Students are encouraged to utilize Career Services for assistance in the job search, application and interview  process. Career Counselors and Peer Advisors are available by appointment. Additionally, there are numerous job  search resources on the Career Services web site and in the Resources Room. Please note that Career Services  does not make hiring choices, nor does it advise employers on hiring international students. All employers make their own hiring choices.
