What Every International Student and Postdoc Should Know About US Employment

Presented by the Science Alliance

 

Interested in hearing how H-1B sponsorship happens from the inside? Dan Beaudry, former head of campus recruiting at Monster.com, shares the potent job search system used by many international students and postdocs 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 online application systems are often obstacles instead of conduits to finding a U.S. job — and how to bypass them.
  • Learn why submitting résumés online is not an effective use of your time-and how you can better invest that time.

Coffee and cookie reception from 8:00 PM to 9:00 PM.
