Dear Incoming MFEs:

 

There may be some confusion over work permits/visas for summer internships and full time jobs.   I’ll try to clarify here…

 

Summer Internships

Based on the Office of International Student Services and the Immigration, Customs, and Enforcement Agency, international students may only work during the summer at an internship. Internships during your regular academic calendar – winter quarter, spring quarter, and fall quarter will not be authorized.  ONLY summer quarter internships will be authorized.   

 

Americans/PRs may work any time they chose within the US.  Just keep in mind that the MFE program is rigorous and will require a lot of your time outside of the classroom.

 

American students have a much harder time getting employed during the summer in overseas internships due to the strict nature of labor laws in European Countries and in Asia.   I do not want to imply this is impossible – it’s is difficult.  Some of the issues arise due to what country’s passport you hold … Europeans have an EU passport and are able to work across country lines e.g. one may have been born in France, but can work in Italy.  China/Asia are more inclined to take individuals who have Chinese passports and speak some Chinese unless you want to go to China and teach English (there seems to be a lot of jobs for this – but our MFEs won’t be doing that). Some fellowships organizations (Fulbright) are able to find employment or facilitate overseas employment for Americans/PR after their graduate degree.

 

If you find an internship you ARE interested in, wherever it may be, READ all of the qualifications. This is where you find that company’s policies with respect to their citizenship requirements. If there is no mention of citizenship requirements, then I recommend applying.

 

Full Time Jobs

Most of what I mentioned above for American students applies here too.  What may happen for American students is that you get employed by a larger American company who has overseas offices and you are sent overseas to work. 

 

As for our international students, the MFE CIP code on the I-20 has been changed to Actuarial Science.  This change qualifies MFE international students for the STEM program which can extend a student’s Optional Practical Training (OPT) by 17 months – for a total of 29 months.  We went to bat for our students on trying to change our code and we were able to find a fit in Actuarial Science even though strictly speaking MFEs are not actuarial scientists.   Please keep in mind that this does not change your status until you actually find a job and that company agrees to petition to change your visa status to 29 months.  This just makes it easier for companies to consider you since you will be working with them for a longer OPT period of time … that is, their will have a much higher ROI (return on investment) for a 29 month work period !!!

 

I hope this helps.  If not, please send me your questions.

 

See you soon … and in the mean time HAPPY TURKEY DAY!

 

Sandy
