Diversity - Career Resources for International Students

The University Advising & Career Center provides support and resources to all UNH international undergraduate and graduate students.  In addition to the on-line information and links found here students are welcome to make appointments with career advisors.  We can discuss job & internship searching, resume writing, interview preparation and more. 

Working in the U.S.

If your goal is to work in the U.S. either while studying at UNH or after you graduate you will need to be very familiar with the laws and visa regulations. You can discuss some of this with the career advisors at the UACC but you should work closely with the staff at the Office of Students and Scholars in Thompson Hall.

Here is a link to OISS's detailed information about Working in the U.S.

Job Search Support (Online resources):

Resume and Cover Letters

Interview Tips

Networking and Job Searching Advice

Job Searching Tools for International Students:

UNH subscribes to Goinglobal. This database can be helpful in identifying potential employers who have hired international students to work in the US as well as other countries in the past. It is not a database of currently open jobs.  Goinglobal is accessed through your Wildcat Careers account. Use your Blackboard log on information with Wildcat Careers.

The Career & Internship Fairs host employers who indicate that they hire international students. Check the fair directory in Wildcat Careers fair for that information.
