Welcome to work life!
A graduate job refers to a full-time, entry-level position that requires the applicant to have a degree from a college, university or a business school in order to obtain the occupation. Often, applicants that are close to completing their academic qualifications will also be considered for these positions. Graduate listings are offered by companies of all shapes and sizes and form one of the most common and most sought after forms of employment today. See which job we currently have online in USA.
Salary and benefits designate further fluctuating elements of graduate jobs and are once more determined by the individual employer or country of occupation. A salary refers to a fixed regular payment made by an employer to an employee, while benefits refer to indirect or non-financial compensations offered. Both the salary presented and the benefits received should be more competitive in a graduate position than a student job, graduate programme and/or an internship.
Living and working in the United States
Being the world’s most powerful economic and military power, the USA has long been a popular destination if you are looking for graduate jobs. In any case, you need to apply for a visa. Obtaining that might prove a bit challenging as you need to be sponsored by an employer or to apply independently for a working visa.
The administrative process is less cumbersome for highly qualified people (those with advanced degrees, ‘exceptional abilities’ or a certain number of years of professional experience). Similarly, professionals in specialty occupations would find the requirements less rigid. Speciality occupations include, but are not limited to, computer system analysts and programmers, physicians, professors, engineers, and accountants. Research and development in biotechnology have grown in popularity, so if you are considering a job in the field of sustainable agriculture, using biofuels and other alternative sources of energy, your application might also be evaluated favourably.
2 US universities are active partners in the Graduateland Network, the University of Wisconsin - Madison and the Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado Boulder.
Tip: Be aware that the requirements for job applications in USA may be different from what you are used to. Check the points where you can adapt your CV, cover letter and communication with employers to local standards.
