International Students

Life is the United States on an F-1, J-1, or M-1 visa can be a fun adventure and the Academic Success & Career Center is here to provide career development support. Our career coaches are available to work with all students and help you navigate your international experience.

Here are a few areas we can help provide support:

Researching Organizations: Linkedin serves as a great starting point for learning about an organization you are interested in.  Every business is different and understanding a way to connect yourself to that business could help with landing an opportunity with them.  The Mission Statement for each organization is a chance to envision how you could be a part of their overall mission.

Resume Design and Interview Coaching: Resume design is one place to highlight what makes you you and the ASCC coaches understand how to blend and build your international experience and identity with what you think is most important and what the organization may think is most important.  Resumes require a lot of work and constant change but the ASCC is prepared to guide you and then teach you how to use the tools we use to prepare yourself for success in the United States market.

Career Exploration: Not sure where to start or thinking about how your major can lead to success post-graduation, our Career Coaches can help.
