The Career Center is proud to announce a few new additions to our website:
Going Global is a very helpful resource that can help you whether you are looking for a job in Missouri, another state, or another country. In the USA/Canada Career City Guide, you will find information about many key cities including cost of living, lists of the largest employers, job search websites, cultural information, and a list of nonprofit/volunteer opportunities. When looking for a position in another country, it is often difficult to navigate the visa process and cultural differences in the job search process. For those looking for H1B visa sponsorship, Going Global will give you a list of H1B employers by state and city with links directly to the employer’s website. With the Country Guides resource, you will find all of this key information in one place including job search resources, business and networking groups, and industry and employment trends. When conducting a job search, it is very important to research employers before applying for positions and the Employer Directory can help. This tool provides basic information including a brief description, number of employees, link to their website, and contact information. There is even a place to search for job/internship postings both in the US and internationally. Overall, you will find that Going Global is a wonderful resource no matter where your job search takes you.
