Resources for International Students

Getting Started on the Job and/or Internship Search

1. Talk to the International Admission coordinator, Angie Veith, to determine eligibility for CPT (curricular practical training for internships) or OPT (Optional Practical Training)

2. Research internship opportunities by reviewing our Internship page, talking to your internship coordinator, and reviewing the list of international student "friendly" companies at the bottom of this page. You can use these same resources for finding a job and by reviewing our list of job listing sites

3. Visit the Career Development Center for assistance on your resume, curriculum vitae, cover letter, and the application process.

4.  After you accept the offer for your internship, you will have to fill out the CPT form and get it approved. Your employer and your internship dates will be recorded on your I-20.
