For International Students

Job searching can be stressful for everyone! But for international students, they also need to understand their immigration status and the rules around CPT (Curricular practical training)

Here are some resources and Tips to help you figure out what is right and/or helpful to you.

  • NU's OGS office has compiled some great videos to explain CPT.
  • Learn more about working in the US. Create a cultural profile on GlobeSmart, and compare yourself to the US norms. This tool can help you see what will be challenging for you, and help you understand the "weirdness" of interviews.
