International Student Resources

International students make up approximately 24% of the entire student population on campus and over half of the graduate student population. As an international student, you bring a unique global perspective to Cornell and to your future employer if you wish to work in the U.S. following graduation. Review the International Module in the Canvas Career Development Toolkit to get a quick start on some important elements for international students seeking a career in the U.S. 

We recognize that immigration policies in the U.S. can be confusing, and the competition of getting a job is getting higher. When considering applying for jobs in the U.S., we highly recommend meeting with an Immigration Advisor at International Services, Office of Global Learning to determine the visa requirements for your internship or full-time job after graduation. You can also make an appointment with the International Career Advisor in Cornell Career Services using the "Make an Appointment" button on the top right corner of this page.
