International Student Career Services

The Career Development Center provides the resources below for international students. These resources should be used in addition to—not as a replacement for—the program-specific career resources outlined for Full-Time MBA, Professional MBA, and MS students.

Before you arrive on campus

Before coming to the United States and/or before arriving on Fordham’s campus for the first time, international students should view the CDC pre-orientation webinar for international students. It covers essential topics such as:

  • CDC services and staff
  • How the CDC helps you achieve your desired career outcome
  • Current landscape for U.S. work visas
  • Introduction to the CDC’s six-step Job-Search Model
  • Things you should do before you arrive

During orientation

International students must attend several specialized sessions during graduate orientation. One of these is an international student career panel. Current non-U.S. students and recent alumni speak about the internship-search and job-search processes, including approaches that have worked for them.

After arrival on campus

Searching for an internship or job requires a significant investment of your time, as well as an open mind. The resources below can help you come up with ideas, find leads, and successfully negotiate your status as an international student.
