ISSS Career Support


Until further notice, ISSS cannot accommodate career appointments. We recommend students review the information below, and visit the Career Services office in their college. (posted 9/7/17)


ISSS Career Support is designed to assist international students and scholars in preparing for their job search in order to reach their career goals. ISSS offers workshops and individual appointments to guide international students who are planning to search for jobs in the U.S.

Topics include:

  • Introduction to job search process in the U.S.
  • Cultural expectations in writing resume and interviewing in the U.S.
  • Understanding work authorization and how to address your visa status to the potential employers

We encourage students to contact the Career Services in their college to find out what services are available to them.
