Are you an international student feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or burnt out in your search for good jobs in the United States?

Finally! Your Search For The Best Companies To Work For As An International Student Starts Here...

One of the questions that I often get asked by the international students in our community is of the form:

"I'm struggling to find jobs in the U.S. before my graduation. What should I be doing differently?"

It's a valid question, considering the competitiveness of the U.S. job market and the unique challenges international students face.

If that sounds like what you're dealing with right now, you've come to the right place. 

You see, I know what it feels like to be in your shoes...

Because I had the exact same struggles during my time job hunting as an international student. 

Let's admit it, job hunting as a U.S. international student SUCKS!

It feels like you're spinning your wheels and going nowhere fast. 

That's one of the ugly parts of being a U.S. international student that most people fail to research before studying in the U.S.

You begin your job search following the blueprint that your domestic student counterparts use...

Only to be met with 10X more rejections and missed opportunities.

Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news.


What works for domestic U.S. students in the job search landscape...Does not work for international students!

I wish someone more experienced would have told me this early on...

Rather than taking the generic advice from on-campus career coaches. 

For several years in my undergraduate studies at one of the largest college campuses in the U.S...

I was perplexed by how despite doing everything I thought was right...

Having a high GPA in a STEM field...

Being active in student organizations...

Possessing on-campus work experience...

Volunteering off-campus, etc...

I still had a more challenging time landing jobs than my U.S. citizen or Permanent Resident classmates.

I'd attend the same number of on-campus career fairs...

Talk to more recruiters, and follow up more than my classmates...

And still, they'll walk away from these events with way more first-round interviews than myself.

So I naturally thought that if being 10X better was not good enough...

Then I'll try to be 20X better!

And boy, was that a slippery slope. 

Looking back now, that was a flawed way of thinking!

The good news for you is that I've made those job search mistakes, so you don't need to make the same mistakes!

What you need is a new strategy...

A different strategy!

To set you off on the right track...

I committed my team to create a resource that could guide international students like you...

Through the complex process of job hunting in the U.S.

So, we embarked on a mission to develop a comprehensive guide that caters specifically to the needs of international student job seekers.

As we started this journey, we knew we had to empathize with your present experience.

We understood that you're not just looking for any job.

You're looking for a meaningful career that aligns with your skills, passions, and life aspirations.

So, we started by imagining a different kind of career fair experience. 

We envisioned a fair where all employers are not just "open to hiring international students" - like some might claim to do...

But are actively seeking to do so.

Where each employer understands the value that diversity brings to their organization...

And sees the untapped potential within the U.S. international student talent pool.

But we didn't just stop at imagining. We started working towards turning this vision into reality. 

To put this together...

We sifted through thousands of companies - both small and big - and across multiple industries...

Analyzed their recent hiring trends for foreign talent...

And handpicked the ones we believe will give you the best shot today and in the future!


The Ultimate International Student's Career Guide. 

A Shortcut To Launching Your Career In The U.S.

(Even If You Have No Job Search Experience)

We have invested over 500 hours of meticulous research to compile a comprehensive list of the most friendly companies dedicated to hiring early career international talent.

With an emphasis on early career talent!

Which is the demographic of most international students looking for entry-level positions after graduation or internships before graduation.

Rather than only looking at the companies well-known for hiring foreign workers on H1B work visas...

Many of which go after talent with several years of work experience...

In other words, we've saved you months of researching for the best-fit companies by doing the heavy lifting for you!

As a former international student who once navigated the daunting world of U.S job hunting, I can say without a shadow of a doubt: this career guide is the resource I wish I had. This guide would have saved me countless hours of searching, stress, and uncertainty.

With over a decade of experience pursuing higher education in the United States on an F-1 visa status, I fully understand the pain points foreign students endure. I founded the Sojourning Scholar platform to help foreign students successfully navigate their way through the challenges they face while living in the United States.


Thank you for your info & your tips!! Your tone is reassurance of a great guy giving great advice with sincerity! I appreciate it!!


Imagine this: You continue to navigate your career search as an international student without a roadmap.

You spend countless hours scouring through job postings online, sending resumes and cover letters into what seems like a black hole...

Receiving no response or getting that annoying auto-generated rejection email.

Too often, even when you network in person...

You are met with companies that are not open to hiring international students due to the complexities of visa sponsorship.

This is the situation you risk if you decide not to take advantage of our carefully curated career guide for international students.

That's countless hours, days, or even weeks you might spend in uncertainty...

The emotional drain of not knowing if you are even applying to the right companies that would be willing to sponsor your work visa in the short term.

That's time you could have spent focusing on crafting your skills, networking, or even just enjoying your time as a student.

With our career guide, you no longer have to grope in the dark.

It's like having a flashlight in a tunnel.

It shows you the clear path with the right companies to target...

Those that value diversity and are eager to take advantage of the global perspective you bring to the table.

You won't have to guess if a company is international-student-friendly or not.

The guesswork is taken out of the equation.

With this guide, you avoid falling into the trap of underemployment.

Or accepting a job that doesn't match your skills or aspirations...

Just because it provides the necessary employment to keep you in a valid F-1 or J-1 status after you graduate.

You could end up feeling unfulfilled and frustrated, not to mention the impact it could have on your financial well-being.

Our career guide offers an escape from that reality.

It provides a curated list of companies committed to diversity...

Who see the rich potential that international students like you can offer.

This way, you can aim for a fulfilling career, a job where you are valued and appreciated...

Where your unique skills and perspective can shine.

Every day that you delay getting our career guide is a day wasted in uncertainty and confusion. 

It's a chance lost to get a head start in a highly competitive job market.

If we were to put a price tag on all that time and effort...

It would easily run into the hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars.

That's not even considering the emotional and mental toll it takes on you.

So, when we say our career guide is valued at $199, it's not a random figure.

It's an estimation of the value it brings by helping you avoid the pitfalls of the job search process, giving you a targeted strategy...

And most importantly, saving you valuable time and emotional stress.

But even if you had the time to craft your own list of top prospects...

The odds are high that you lack an essential ingredient in our career guide.

You see our team has over a decade of experience hunting for jobs as international students in the U.S. 

That's 10+ years of navigating the U.S. job market...

Deeply understanding the intricacies of searching for jobs as foreign nationals...

Recognizing genuinely inclusive companies and industries...

And unfortunately, learning the hard way. 

This expertise and insight have been poured into the career guide...

Giving it an edge that you can't easily replicate on your own.

Now we know that, as students, your budget is a critical factor.

So we're not going to ask you to pay $199.

We want this guide to be accessible to as many students as possible...

How were the companies in the e-book selected?

The selection process for the companies in our e-book was rigorous and comprehensive.

Drawing upon our collective experience of well over 10 years job hunting as international students, our team invested over 500 hours in meticulous research to ensure that only the best companies for international students made it into the guide.

Our research methodology involved gathering data from various sources to compile a comprehensive and diverse list of companies that prioritize hiring international students. 

Here's an overview of some of the data sources we utilized:

  1. Employers that attended campus career fairs at the top 200 US colleges: We analyzed data from career fairs held at more than 200 leading colleges and universities across the United States in the past year.

    We specifically focused on employers who expressed their openness to hiring international students for entry-level positions or for internships.
  2. Government databases with reports of employers hiring international students: We accessed government databases that provide valuable information on employers who have hired international students under Optional Practical Training (OPT), STEM OPT, and Curricular Practical Training (CPT) programs.

    This data helped us identify companies that actively recruit and provide employment opportunities to international students.
  3. Database of startups receiving recent funding rounds: Seeing as startups often offer innovative opportunities for early career talent, including international students,  we made sure to review companies from this dynamic sector as well, focusing on those that had recently completed a funding round(s).
  4. Government database reporting H1B petitions for initial employment: We referred to multiple government databases that report employers who filed H1B petitions for initial employment in the years 2021 and 2022.

    This data allowed us to identify the companies in our early research phase with a positive trend of hiring fresh international talent for long-term work visas in today's U.S. economy.

By combining and analyzing data from these disparate sources, we identified companies with a demonstrated history of recruiting from the early career talent pool, where international students frequently emerge.

Our aim was to curate a list of companies that have a track record of welcoming and providing opportunities to international students.

The result is a thoughtfully selected collection of companies that value diversity, foster inclusivity, and actively seek to hire international students like you. We're confident that the companies featured in our e-book will offer you the best chances for success in your job search.

Is the e-book suitable for all fields and industries?

While we can't cover every field of study, we have carefully curated the companies in this e-book to cater to a wide range of fields and industries.

To ensure inclusivity and relevance, we have categorized the featured companies into 11 industries, encompassing everything from aerospace and defense to technology and everything in between.

This comprehensive approach ensures that there's something for most international students job hunting.
