International Students

The Importance of Planning Ahead

International students desiring to work in the U.S. typically face an additional layer of complexity and difficulty.  While international students are permitted to work in the US according to specific regulations, many employers are not willing to incur the time and expense of sponsoring an H-1 visa. In addition, in most cases as a foreign national you are not permitted to work for the U.S. federal government, most state and local governments, or for private contractors working for the U.S. government.  If you would like to work in the U.S., it is essential that you plan ahead to maximize your chances of success!
