BGC: International Students and Employment in the U.S.
International students in F-1 and J-1 visa status must adhere to strict regulations and procedures for obtaining internships and employment in the United States. This session is designed to provide faculty and staff a basic understanding of immigration related-issues to make informed administrative decisions, learn how the Pomerantz Career Center supports international students’ career development, and create a foundation for partnering efficiently and effectively with International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS).
Participants may take courses individually, without working toward a certificate. Successful fulfillment of the Building Our Global Community certificate requires completion of one required core course and four elective courses. All courses taken for the program are free of charge to participants.
UI faculty and staff can sign up online through Employee Self-Service under the “Personal” tab in My Training; search for courses listed with BGC in the course title.
