Job searching in the US as an international student can be tough. To assist with the search, the Career Center subscribes to Going Global’s H1B visa employer database. Going Global’s H1B visa database lists companies that submitted H1B visa applications for specific metro areas (including DC!) and all 50 states. The data is updated quarterly from the US Department of Labor. The database is an extremely useful resource that can help you target employers with a history of submitting H1B visa applications. Please note that these listings are not job postings.
There are two different ways to search for employers within the database:
1) You can search for employers based on geography using “Metro Search” and “State Search”. Information for the DC area is found under the “Metro Search” category.
2) You can search for employers by industry, job title, or company using the “H1B PLUS USA search”.
To access Going Global, log in to your AU CareerWeb account and click “Going Global” under “Quicklinks”. The H1B database is found under the “H1B Info” tab. If you have any questions about the resource feel free to email me at JNunno@american.edu.
