As you enter a graduate business program, take a moment to reflect on your desired outcome. Ask yourself the following questions to begin developing an action plan based on your long-term goal:
- Does your graduate program require an internship?
- Will you complete an internship in a program where it is not required?
- If you plan to complete an internship, would you like to stay in the U.S. or go elsewhere for the experience?
- Do you plan on seeking employment in the U.S. after graduation?
Knowing where (geographically) you want to work and live is a very important step in the career planning process. Spears School of Business Graduate Career Services offers access to data bases of U.S. employers willing to sponsor visas and assistance with developing your job search strategy, but it is your responsibility to understand the requirements of legally working in the U.S. – To learn more visit the OSU Office Of International Students and Scholars.
International students seeking a career in the U.S. are provided with a database of employers willing to hire internationals and assist with visa sponsorship though myvisajobs.com. Additional specialized databases are available to enrolled students only by e-mail to the Spears School Career Consultant for Graduate Studies.
