What Employers Need to Know About Hiring International Students

Interstride supports students, employers, and campuses in helping international students gain employment opportunities. Their U.S. Employer’s Guide to Hiring International Students covers everything from internships to long-term employment.

In addition, the linked resource from our office will help both employers and students understand what is involved when an employer wants to hire an international student.  It covers the following topics:

  • Internship Hiring (part-time or full-time, while a student is pursuing their degree)
  • Full Time Hiring (Post-Graduation Internship or Employment)
  • Hiring and Retention Beyond OPT Timeframes

The UW Career & Internship staff members are not experts in this area and are not able to provide detailed consultation to employers on this matter.
