Employers: International Student Career Fair

The Career Center, in collaboration with HG Plus and other USC partners, hosts this fair to connect international students with overseas opportunities, as well as domestic, visa-sponsoring organizations in search of their valuable foreign language skills and unique global perspectives. Regardless of your organization’s size, this fair provides you with an opportunity to recruit candidates for full-time, part-time, and paid internship opportunities and establish strong connections with international students through our virtual career fair platform.

This year, we are excited to introduce our new Career Center partner, the law firm WR Immigration, who will be staffing an “immigration help booth” to answer your questions about CPT, OPT, H-1B, green cards, and other work authorization categories.
