International Students

Welcome to the International Students Career Community!

Securing an internship or job can be challenging, and can be even more difficult for international students and graduates. We understand that as an international student, you are not only working hard to succeed academically, but also adapting to a new culture, set of traditions, and maybe a new language. Career and Professional Development (CAPD) offers professional development support every step of the way while you are a student and even after you graduate. Please visit CAPD as early as possible and start planning your long-term career goals.
