International students need to pay attention when looking for a job

Graduation season is coming soon. Many international students want to stay in the United States after graduation to gain some experience and improve their abilities. But there are many things you should pay attention to when looking for a job.

American companies hire locally. This is different from that in our country. For famous but distant schools, American companies will hardly release any positions. In the job fair, some universities close to the company will be the first choice, because they are familiar with the teaching level and student quality of these schools, and they also have many opportunities to communicate with the students of these schools. So if you’re going to college in New York, if you want to be successful, you’d better do an internship in New York (also known as 纽约实习) and find a job in New York(also known as 纽约找工作).

In the interview, you need skills. Self-confidence must be there. From the beginning to go to the United States, you must believe in yourself and be stronger than others. If the spoken language is not satisfactory, don’t be discouraged. Be bold in speaking. Americans can understand your English, so all you need to do is to speak your opinions boldly, express yourself effectively and communicate with others. It is the most important part of your job search! It is a hundred times more important than your listening, reading, and writing.

In addition, considering your legal status during work, you’d better ask the company carefully. Generally, green card is difficult and the green card schedule (also known as绿卡排期) is long, so most companies will not choose to apply for green card for employees. You can ask whether they will apply for h1b visa (also known as h1b签证) or o1 visa (also known as o1签证) for you. At the same time, you should note that h1b lottery (also known as h1b抽签) is relatively random, and the security is not very large, so it is better to apply for o1 visa.
