IAP: What Every International Student and Trainee Should Know about U.S. Employment [virtual]

January 19 @ 1:00 pm 2:30 pm

Dan Beaudry, former head of campus recruiting at Monster.com, shares the potent job search system used by many international students and trainees to find U.S. employment. H-1B’s are won in ways you likely don’t expect. What you’ll discover in this presentation may surprise you:
• Learn how to secure H-1B sponsorship at companies that have a policy against sponsoring H-1B visas.
• Learn why 80 percent of open jobs are never advertised – and how to find them before anyone else.
• Learn why human resources is often an obstacle instead of a conduit to finding a U.S. job-and how to bypass it.
• Learn why submitting résumés online is not an effective use of your time-and how you can better invest that time.

Dan’s programs at MIT have been very popular in years past. Find more information about him and his book, The International Student’s Guide to Finding a Job in the United States, at www.powerties.net. This CAPD event is open to MIT undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, and alumni.

This event is sponsored by Career Advising & Professional Development, the Office of Graduate Education, the Office of the Vice President of Research, and the International Students Office.
