For International Students

International students at Wesleyan University can and do find employment with American employers, both inside and outside the United States, after graduation.  It isn't easy, but then again, it's never really easy to find a job, no matter what your citizenship status.  If you are an international student, you may find the following resources useful as you plan your transition out of Wesleyan.
