Opportunities to work while you are a student at the University are plentiful and diverse. Positions range from research assistants to youth development professionals. No matter what your interests may be, there is a job for you on campus!
Working After Graduation
Optional practical training (OPT) is work authorization that allows international students to legally pursue employment in their field of study in the U.S. for 12 months after completing their degree.
The Career Center assists Purdue University Northwest students and alumni in making connections with employers for a successful future.
Curricular Practical Training allows you to pursue employment authorization for “an integral part of an established curriculum [that] must be directly related to the international student’s major area of study.”
We support internationalization and global awareness through on-campus programming as well as welcoming international students and English Language Program participants.
