What Every International Student Needs to Know about the US Job Search

International students and postdocs, you don't want to miss this upcoming workshop on the US Job Search by author Dan Beaudry! On Wednesday, November 13 from 5:00-6:30 p.m. in Wilson Hall Room 103, Dan Beaudry will present, "What Every International Student Should Know about U.S. Employment: A Recruiter's Perspective." Following his presentation, Mr. Beaudry will sign copies of his book, Power Ties. A limited number of books will be available for purchase at the book signing.

Dan Beaudry, head of business development at Going Global, and former head of campus recruiting for Monster.com, shares the potent job search system used by many international students find US employment. H-1B's are won in ways you likely don't expect. What you'll discover in this presentation may surprise you. He will discuss how to secure H-1B sponsorship at almost any company-even if the company has 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.
