International Students

Looking for a job as an international student involves being aware of different employment laws in the different countries where you may wish to work. When applying for jobs in the U.S., Harvard students should meet both with representatives from the Harvard International Office (HIO) to go over visa and work status issues, and with the Office of Career Services (OCS) advisers.
