GoinGlobal

GoinGlobal is a resource for students and alumni seeking jobs both abroad and in the US. It includes 40 Country Career Guides and 29 Global City Career Guides that serve as virtual career and cultural "coaches" in your quest for a job, internship, or volunteer opportunity outside of the U.S. The site also features 47 US City Career guides for the major metropolitan areas in the U.S. and is ideal for students planning to relocate within the country. All US City Career Guides include links to H-1B visa employers for their respective state.

The Career Guides provide professional advice and insider tips on such topics as: job search tools, employment trends in major industries, work permit regulations, salary ranges and cost of living data, professional and social networking groups, resume/CV writing guidelines, and interviewing and cultural advice. You may also subscribe to podcasts and a newsletter for up-to-date information.

Please do keep in mind that there is an abundance of information and you need to devote time to thoroughly review all the pages and links on the site. And remember that online resources cannot replace the value of face-to-face networking and other hidden job search strategies.

We encourage you to mine GoinGlobal, but also plan to communicate with CLBR staff about how to best use this resource. International students should also discuss visa and work regulations with the Assistant Dean of International Students.
