The hiring process for this position is already started in the first week of October 2019. The new coordinator will be supporting international students in visas as well as in career openings.
The Global Brown Center has received more than thirty thousand applications within three days of posting as per Associate Dean for International Students Asabe Poloma.
The primary purpose of this vacancy is to help international students find a job in the United States after graduation. It has been observed that it becomes very difficult for international students to get an excellent job in the US, and they have to go back to their home country to get a job.
Students have many misconceptions about what they will do when the F-1 permission is over after a year or three, and all this needs to be cleared by the newly joining coordinator. Existing programs need to be improvised by the Universities to support job-seeking international students.
International students need more advising on careers in America and the main difficulty for them is to find a sponsor to revise the visa after their course is over. Many American companies don’t support hiring and providing sponsor visas to students because of their international status.
They are unable to stay back for work as they don’t get sponsorship for H-1 B to work visas. Most of the students are not aware of whom to approach to get a solution to find employment and want some special classes or period on how to get job opportunities in the United States.
More attention and interest will be shown in facilitating international students through this new coordinator vacancy. High expectation is with this new member vacancy at Global Brown Center to make the life of International students less difficult to find a career in the United States.
The new coordinator will also be supporting faculty, staff, and other students in cultural competency and to make the campus climate more wide-ranging for international students.
