Working in the United States
While it is not usual, some students chose to find employment during their semester at IU. There are plenty of options if you are interested and we would be happy to help you during your search process.
As a J-1 student you will need authorization for any type of employment so please be sure you are following the correct steps. You have three categories of employment authorization available to you:
- On-campus employment
- Academic Training
- Severe economic hardship
Please visit the Office of International Services website under J-1 students to learn more.
