International Resources

International Resources

Interested in studying, interning, volunteering or working abroad? Before you begin, focus your search by targeting specific industries, job functions, graduate schools and countries. Resources that are targeted to your search in some way (by country or industry, for example) will usually be more effective than general resources. The following resources and strategies are designed to help you start your search, whether you are an international student or someone looking to work outside the United States. In addition to using these resources, think long term: even after you've made the most of your study abroad program or interned and volunteered internationally, consider applying to multinational companies in the U.S., which might bring the potential to transfer to many other locations across the world.

International Alumni Contacts
Just as with any job search, networking with fellow Spider alumni can be a powerful tool. Start by reaching out to these International Spider Alumni contacts: 

LinkedIn is another valuable networking tool. To find UR alumni living in the countries you are interested in, hover on the “My Network” tab on the navigation bar and then select “Find Alumni.” This will give you access to all UR alumni who are on LinkedIn and you can search through the listings by location, industry, company, major, skills, and relationship to you. 

Additional Resources

The country guides on Goinglobal (which can be accessed through SpiderConnect) include top companies, job search resources, cultural advice, résumé guidelines, and employment trends specific to that country.
