In case you missed it, OISS partnered with the Career Services Network this week to host “Employment Initiatives for International Students”. Over 40 students attended the information session to learn about MySpartanCareer and what type of work authorization options are available, such as Curricular Practical Training (CPT). Even the State News showed up to find out what we were talking about! Read what they had to say here: http://www.statenews.com/index.php/article/2011/09/msu_assists_international_students_with_hunt_for_jobs

If you’re reading this, maybe you’re also curious about Optional Practical Training (OPT). You’re in luck because we are hosting several information sessions about OPT beginning Wednesday, September 14th. For more information, check out our Calendar of Events.
