The John P. Fahey Career Center recognizes that each student may be job searching through the lens of one or more identity group. In addition to using general job search resources, we recommend utilizing population-specific resources to identify employers actively seeking diverse candidates, build your identity-based network, and understand your workplace rights.
General Resources for Diverse Candidates
To expand your professional network look into the Professional Diversity Network.
Student Veterans and Spouses
For more information or to learn about additional resources for military veterans entering the workforce visit the US Department of Veterans Affairs.
Employment and Visa Requirements
Opportunities for internships and jobs depends, largely, on the visa and additional training that you have and are qualified for. In many cases the qualifications are based on the degree or field that an individual is pursuing. Knowing your options and communicating those options to a prospective employer can make a big difference.
To learn more about what your current visa allows for and which training programs you may be able to fit into, connect with the Global Engagement Office.
Much of the information regarding the internship and job search is consistent no matter what the background of a candidate. However, as an international student, there are a few more stipulations and opportunities for you to be aware of as you enter your search.
