Career Treks

Career Treks are a career exploration initiative that allows students to travel to various cities in order to gain insight into career fields of interest. These immersive experiences provide behind the scenes opportunities for students to engage with an organization, shadow professionals in the workplace, learn about various career paths, meet with Notre Dame alumni, and more. Throughout the year our students travel to Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, and New York to participate in Career Treks. If you would like to host a group of students at your office, please contact our office.

International Students

If your organization is advertising to fill positions, you may receive resumes from international students who need sponsorship. Don't dismiss those applications out of hand; take a closer look! The precedent for international students to obtain temporary U.S. work authorization is longstanding and well-established, and the application process is straightforward. The International Student and Scholar Affairs (ISSA) office at Notre Dame works with students to facilitate employment authorization, which is approved by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service.  

The Center for Career Development, in coordination with Notre Dame International, has put together an easy-to-use and downloadable guide "Hiring the International Student" to help clarify the work authorization process.
