Due to current economic conditions and present government regulations, finding permanent employment in the United States has in recent years become challenging for international students. In light of these circumstances, the Career Development Office recommends that international students conduct a global career search by looking for jobs in the U.S., as well as in countries where they have long-term work authorization.
The Career Development Office will provide support to international students by identifying job search sources, connecting with Boston College alumni whenever possible, and developing strategies for connecting with U.S. companies that may have offices in students’ home countries. In addition, our team will assist in the preparation of students’ marketing materials as well as in interview preparation.
International students can avail of all Career Development educational programs, both internal and those conducted by employers. Plus, students are provided access to a range of networking tools, job boards, and recruitment platforms targeted to international job seekers.
