When you study in the US you are at the start of an international career. Your international job search begins the minute you step on campus. You have access to resources and people to explore worldwide opportunities from entry level international jobs to high tech jobs in top companies. While you might be focused on how to get a job in the US after graduation it’s smart to pay attention to opportunities outside the US. It’s getting harder for international students to find work in the US. H-1B jobs aren’t guaranteed even if you find companies that sponsor international students. Understanding global hiring trends, exploring international job search engines, and knowing how to get hired in countries outside the US (like Canada!), will make you a more successful international job seeker.
