International students are eligible for all career services available through the James W. Stuckert Career Center, including on-campus recruiting. It can be challenging to find a "sponsor-friendly" employer, so you need to begin the process early!
Here are some general tips to get you started:
In addition to the Stuckert Career Center, help is located in the International Center’s Office of International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) in Bradley Hall. Come to Bradley Hall during regular daily walk-in hours or schedule an appointment to meet with an F-1 or J-1 student immigration advisor, to discuss your potential employment options both before and after graduation.
Employment options prior to graduation, such as internships, are limited due to restrictive immigration regulations. However, for students who are required to complete an internship, this can be a wonderful opportunity to show off your skills.
Most students will be eligible to apply for some type of practical training shortly before or immediately after all academic program requirements have been met. Visit the ISSS website for more information about student employment options for F-1 and J-1 visa holders after graduation.
Students should also plan to attend at least one employment-based workshop offered by ISSS each fall and spring semester. Watch for dates/times in your emails from ISSS, our Facebook and Twitter pages, or contact ISSS staff in Bradley Hall.
