Exploring Career Choices

UCS offers one-on-one career counseling to all international students who may be undecided on their career choice. Within your appointment with a career counselor you will be able to process what your interests, values and skills are and how those attributes relate to a satisfying career or occupation.

International students need to consider researching the reality of their career choice as it relates to allowing them to remain in the U.S. for employment. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, there are careers which create a greater likelihood of being employed in the U.S. and gaining sponsorship for a H1B Visa. Often those careers are within STEM careers or Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. This is due to a shortage in domestic talent existing in those types of careers, therefore justifying the hiring of international talent.
