International Students

As an international student you may find yourself in a unique position while attending Binghamton University.  It may be hard to connect with other college students navigating experiences much different from yours or you may face challenges connecting due to different cultural norms or colloquialisms.  You may also be searching for someone from your home country to provide familiarity and understanding to your new environment.  This affinity group will help connect you to other students that can relate to your experience, as well as resources to assist you as you explore career interests and prepare for your future. 

On the other hand, you may find yourself faced with the decision to pursue a job in your home country or in the United States. Regardless of where you choose to pursue a job, you will need to adapt your job search techniques to the location’s laws, cultural and societal norms. In your plan to pursue career opportunities in the U.S., the research you do in advance will increase your chances of a successful job search.

The sections below cover some of the strategies, techniques, and resources international students can utilize for a U.S. job search.
