As an international student, you bring to employers a demonstrated ability to adapt to new situations and knowledge of another culture, region, and/or language.  

Working in the U.S., however, will require that you understand how to maintain legal status under your student visa, i.e., your eligibility to apply for employment authorization.  Check with the Columbia International Students & Scholars Office (ISSO) to learn about your unique status before starting any search.  

Work with us to learn about recruitment practices and work culture in the U.S., how to prepare tailored internship and job applications, how to connect with alumni and employers, and to practice for interviews, negotiations and networking.   See Career Counseling for more info.
