This job search course is for ambitious and mature international students who want to secure great jobs or internships in the U.S. The International Advantage has helped hundreds of international students land jobs in companies such as Google, Microsoft, Tesla, Goldman Sachs, and several other high quality firms. I don't see a reason why I couldn't help you get hired as well. Let The International Advantage be your guide! Getting international students noticed and hired is what we do!

The goal for this live, highly interactive class is for you to confidently execute on job search strategies created by The International Advantage to get international students hired, no matter what field you're in. In this course you will learn data driven and tested job search strategies that were specially designed to tilt the balance in favor of international students who seek U.S jobs or internships.

This LIVE Get Hired International Advantage course will challenge you. It will force you to think in ways you never thought before. And while this course will focus on the biggest pain point for most internationals: how do find companies that sponsor in your field, the course will cover much more.

When you sign up for this LIVE program, I will enroll you in my International Advantage Get Hired VIDEO Course for free! A $59 value! There, you will have access to 15 videos on how to get hired as an international student.

There's more. I will be offering free email support for the participants during this program so that you can progress faster. I will be responding to emails once a day and answer your questions. Note that I charge $97/hour for email support, but you will be getting it for free throughout this program.

Our LIVE classes via zoom will meet twice a week, every Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9 P.M Eastern Time starting on September 15th. I will be doing a presentation in the first 20 minutes of each class, and we will use the remaining 25 minutes of each class to understand how the topic discussed fits your specific job search needs. By asking questions, discussing, and learning from each other's experiences we will be able to help each other out, and I will be able to provide each student with personalized job search feedback during each class. Zoom sessions will be recorded and uploaded to my Teachable school for you to replay or for those who can not make it to the LIVE meeting.
