The process of finding a job is not easy and at times it might even be more stressful than exciting. If you’re an international student you have a few additional hurdles that might make this process even more complicated like ensuring that your employment complies with your visa work regulations. However, we have a number of resources that we’ve created specifically to help you prepare for your job search as an international student in the US.

Whether you want an on-campus job during your studies or you’re about to graduate and would like to participate in CPT you must make sure that you comply with your visa’s employment regulations. Before you start looking for a job make sure you know what restrictions you must follow.

If you weren’t able to attend our Hangout on working in the US you can watch and see what you missed. During the hangout the five categories of employment that international students will fall into were discussed. If you’re not sure which category applies to you this is a great place to start.

If you’ve already checked out if you’re eligible for OPT, CPT, On-Campus Employment, Severe Economic Hardship or International Organization Employment take the next step to see what you need to do once you find a job you want to apply for employment through. Looking for a job requires a lot of dedication and preparation, taking just a few extra steps can make a big difference in your job search success.

A few examples of things you should do when searching for a job include:
