Definition of Employment and Volunteering

“Employment” is any work performed or services provided in exchange for money, compensation or other benefits. "Volunteering" is defined as something you do for altruistic pleasure, like helping at a charity event for the afternoon.

UW Student Employment Paperwork - Int'l Students

The Center for International cannot provide advice on completing the hiring paperwork for an on-campus job, such as W4 form, etc.  UW Seattle has these resources for international students to review. 

Find Companies Hiring International Students

 This database is just for international students to help you find internships or jobs in the U.S. that are interested to hire an international student.


This unique service is just for UW international student alumni who are looking for jobs or internships in their home country. GradConnection is a job/internship search platform that is dedicated to helping students and recent alumni find graduate job and internship opportunities in China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, and a number of markets in the Southeast Asia region. GradConnection also works very closely with employers in China to help them promote their openings that prefer graduates from overseas universities who are now returning to their home countries to start their careers.

Tips for Interviewing in the U.S.

Do I have to tell them that I am an international student? What questions will an employer ask me? We encourage you to our helpful Interview Tips handout, and also review Career Center's helpful Legal & Illegal Interview Questions resource to understand your rights on what information you do and don't need to provide a prospective employer.
