The job market for international students is competitive. There is no easy route to finding jobs for international students after graduation. Even STEM graduates who looking for OPT jobs and are in demand among companies that sponsor international students, struggle to find opportunities. Finding H-1B jobs for international students after MS requires research, training, and good timing.
Luckily there’s a bit of help for international students who want to work in the US. GlobalMe School, the online platform for global career training, just released the H-1B Job Search Package. (note: International Student Careers is owned by GlobalMe School).

If you’re an F1 visa student looking for options after graduation, the H-1B Job Search package will guide you through the process. With the subscription package you get access to online career training courses designed for international students.
