  • International students do not qualify for any “work study” employment position on campus.  In the U.S. work study refers to Federal Work Study program where American students may earn U.S. government funding for college education based on financial needs.  Therefore, international students may apply for any on-campus position that does not indicate work-study “required”. 
  • Seek professionals feedback for a professional, American style resume or C.V.  If interested, the hiring employer may contact to schedule a job interview. 
  • Once you are offered a job, you need to apply for a social security number as soon as possible.
