Frequently Asked Questions

When do I reveal my international student status to US employers?

There is no one right time for international students to reveal their immigration status to US employers. Different students approach the topic differently: some students prefer to reveal their status at the beginning of an interaction, while other wait until the interview phase.

What is important is that international students:

  • Respond honestly about their immigration status and work authorization eligibility when asked
  • Ensure that the topic is discussed before the interview process ends so that employers have this information when making their hiring decision.
