International Student Career Resources

Finding a job in the United States can be challenging for international students. However, international students have a unique skill set in the US job market, and many Georgetown international alumni have successfully pursued careers in the US after graduation. As an international student, you will need to be able to explain your immigration status and work abilities clearly and concisely, become familiar with US hiring culture, and most importantly, be able to articulate your value to employers. Research, networking and interviewing are integral to the job search process, and you should expect to invest as much time into your job search as you would a course.
