What Every International Student Should Know About U.S. Employment

Interested in hearing how H-1B sponsorship happens from the inside?  Dan Beaudry, former head of campus recruiting at, shares the potent job search system used by many international students to find U.S. employment. H-1B's are won in ways you likely don't expect.  What you'll discover in this presentation may surprise you:

  • Learn how to secure H-1B sponsorship at companies that have 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.

Find more information about Dan, and The International Student’s Guide to Finding a Job in th United States at






Tuesday, August 8, from 4:00-5:00pm in 100 Nedderman Hall. Registration is required to attend.
