Hi Sherry,

Searching for jobs in the US is similar for international students and US nationals.  The thing is, because of visa requirements, an employer will need to have a very good reason to hire you and do the necessary work.  You can search for jobs through the same channels other students would use (personal and school contacts, your university career office, professional networks, and websites), but you will need to discuss your international status with any potential employers up front and give them reasons why they should select you over other applicants.  Good luck!
