Job Search Tips
Olya Bezvushko

These tips will help you to create a resume and search for jobs in the United States:

     1. Concerns on the job search. Take into consideration the location of the job and the type of field. Large international companies will be more willing to work with international students as will companies on both east and west coasts. Small Midwestern companies are not usually disposed to hire students from abroad; however providing information on employment status might appeal to these companies.

     2. How to write the education section of the resume? First of all, list the home school certificate you earned or the degree you were awarded, mention the location of the school and the date the program was completed. Do not mention the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) scores, unless they are obviously demanded. Instead, include the information about the amount of years have studied English, you have studied in English or have spoken English. Do not try to "translate" your educational experiences for employers. Simply list those experiences and include your most recent experience, for example the acceptanse by some prestigious American university (of cource, only if it is true).Being accepted by an American university such as Purdue will signal to employers that you have qualifying educational experience.

     3. It is better not to include information about your employment status on the resume. It is better to include such kind of information in the cover letter. You have to be aware of your status as an international student and the types of jobs you are eligible to be hired for as a result. You can check with the Office of International Students and Scholars for information on your status and the types of jobs for which you may be hired.
