Resources for International Students
Williams’ international students are encouraged to fully utilize the resources of the Career Center. International students are presented with a unique set of challenges and opportunities as they consider exploring career options through summer jobs, internships, and employment upon graduation.
U.S. visa and immigration laws are complex and make it difficult to pursue employment in this country. Ninah Pretto, the Assistant Dean of International Student Services, works closely with all of Williams’ international students on issues relating to a happy life on campus. The Assistant Dean and the Career Center work together to assist International Students in all aspects of the job search and employment. You may reach Ninah in the Dean’s Office in Hopkins Hall (x4171).
