Studying in the U.S. is a powerful first step towards making U.S. employment a reality, but each year thousands of international students are surprised to discover that it takes more than an American degree to get a job in the U.S. Job-seekers need to understand the unique challenges facing international students. In this presentation, Dan Beaudry, former recruiter and author, provides expert tips for international students to find jobs in the U.S.

Dan is the author of the book Power Ties: The International Student’s Guide to Finding a Job in the United States.  Over the past 5 years, he has delivered presentations to thousands of international students of all disciplines at over 80 universities and business schools across the United States. He has also been a guest speaker at the National Association of Colleges and Employers, the MBA Career Services and Employer Alliance, the HR Planning Society, the International Careers Consortium, and the National Association of Asian MBAs. Dan has been quoted in The Wall Street Journal, Voice of America, The Straits Times and many other media outlets.

Dan served as the Campus Recruiting Manager for Monster.com where he constructed and managed the company’s first formal university recruiting program, including the growth and management of Monster’s MBA Executive Development and Leadership program. Prior to joining Monster, Dan was the Associate Director of Corporate Recruiting for the Questrom School of Business at Boston University where he developed the school’s “International Student Employment Series”; an annual program of seminars guiding students from India, East Asia and South America through the US job search process.

Dan began his career in management consulting, and also spent time as a headhunter during the dot.com boom and bust. He now works full time in business development for two international organizations, providing career support and international relations software to the higher education industry.
