Are Internationals not Getting Jobs after MS in USA?

With the immigration, visa, and work permit rules getting more rigid with time, it is extremely important to keep yourself updated about the post-study job opportunities overseas. Through this article we’ll be answering a question asked by most aspiring foreign education students ‘Are internationals not getting jobs after MS in the USA?’

The US Government recently made significant changes in the visa and immigration rules which have increased the level of tension among International students which includes Indians too. The level of uncertainty among both parents and students in regards to study abroad programs has risen drastically and why shouldn’t it? After all who’d not want to study in USA, attain an international masters certificate and recover a significant part of the amount that you’ve paid for their education.

Students who are exceptionally good, bright and deserving are unlikely to get affected by this turmoil. Yes, it’s true that most international countries are making their immigration and visa rules more stringent than ever, but if you’re qualified enough, you will continue to enjoy the post-study opportunities that the US has to offer.

The United States of America is by far one the most popular, study abroad destinations among international students is a statement passed by most study abroad consultants that we have in India. The recent policies laid down by the honorable President of America, Mr. Donald Trump and a few recent crimes that give us the chills has become a major concern for students who yearn to complete their education in America. But let’s be honest and ask ourselves is America the only the place where crimes take place? We should learn to accept the fact that crimes happen elsewhere too. In Addition to this, The United States shaped its character as a universal beacon of innovation, education, research etc over the past few decades.

Now talking about the job opportunities in the United States post studying, we’d like to be very honest and share a few facts that may or may not affect your decision on studying overseas. Despite the revised immigration policies in America, international students are unlikely to get affected.

Internationals can study and work for a total of 12 months whereas STEM graduates can do so for a period of 26 months after completing their program. The possibility of these immigration laws affecting the development and the education policy surrounding it is highly unlikely. When your OPT expires, you will have to apply for an H1B visa, which according to President Donald Trump is a pathway to take up entry-level IT jobs.

Therefore, we’d like to say that the question we were most curious about all this while isn’t true.
