Career & Internship Center
Finding a job or internship is difficult for anyone in the U.S., but it’s especially difficult for international students. Many international students do not have any professional contacts in the U.S., and they face additional barriers to employment such as language and cultural differences. Most importantly, international students also have to navigate confusing paperwork and processes to be able to legally work in the U.S. To bridge opportunities for historically underserved international students, the Career & Internship Center and ASUW Office of International Student Advocacy propose using Interstride. Interstride is an interactive career platform designed to enhance the career exploration and job-search experience for international students. Although this resource is primarily for international students, it also provides a variety of other tools that can be utilized by all students interested in international opportunities. Some of the features of Interstride include: Visa Insights – A tool to look up which companies and organizations have sponsored H1-B visas in the past. Country Insights – Guides to numerous countries overseas with links to health and safety information, job postings, and more. Jobs – A job and internship aggregator to search opportunities at H1-B sponsoring employers in the U.S. or at companies and organizations abroad. Resources and Webinars – Information and advice curated by the team at Interstride.
