International Students

Welcome!  While international students face unique challenges in seeking U.S. employment after graduation, they also have experience and skills that are valued in the U.S. job market. To be successful in your job search as an international student, be sure to take advantage of the programs and resources offered by the Career Center. Also, it’s important to visit the Office of International Services, as they offer resources and information on work regulation guidelines. 

This community is space for international students to access Career Center services and University support. You will find job and internship search resources, ways to connect with on-campus groups, and strategies for identifying employers who respect and affirm people of all identities and orientation.  These resources compliment the information provided in the Career Communities, where you will find resources for specific industries and areas of study.

To discuss or share additional resources for this affinity group, please contact Carol Balk at carol.balk@pitt.edu.
