International Students FAQ's

Which Skills Can I Focus on Marketing to an Employer?

As an international student, you often have experiences that distinguish you from other candidates. These can include familiarity with other cultures, adaptability/flexibility, and language skills. These talents are often valuable for various industries. Consider your international student status as an asset. 

When Should I Reveal My International Student Status?

There is no easy answer to this but it is a topic you can bring up in an interview. It is important not to wait too long, and you should be prepared to explain your work authorization and documents you need. Don't wait until the job offer to tell the employer, make sure they know beforehand.
