About The Program

INDUSTRY TRAINING FOR INTERNATIONAL PHDS

According to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the demand for H-1B visas alone, which allow U.S. companies to employ foreign workers in special occupations such as STEM, surpassed the available allotment within five days for the fourth consecutive year and hit a record for the number of applications submitted: a total of 236,000, of which 85,000 are granted. Being denied a visa extension or being denied full-time employment is something that many international PhDs will face this year.

The International Education Exchange published the Open Doors report, that showed that the number of foreign students in U.S. university programs has increased 72% in the past 15 years. There are thousands of graduates facing the same challenges you are right now and vying for the same jobs. As an international PhD, you must work harder than other job candidates to get hired in industry. You must learn your visa options and how the visa and Green Card processes work in America. You must get access to special information on how to get industry companies to quickly and easily sponsor you for top job positions. You must also get access to a network of international PhDs working in industry who can help you get hired through mentoring and referrals. Cheeky Scientist’s International PhD Visa Group will give you access to the special information and special network you need to get hired in the U.S. as an international PhD student.

What People Are Saying

Arunodoy Sur, Ph.D.

"Academic research became increasingly difficult for me after having my first kid. I was in the middle of my postdoc and life got much harder. Then, things got worse. I got injured in the lab. As a postdoc, my health benefits were horrible. There were no resources for people like me on campus. Something needed to change. I was tired of being on the bottom of the food chain. I had been trying to transition into industry for a while but was sick and tired of digging through articles and trying to piece together information online. I’m so glad I joined the Cheeky Scientist Association. In the Association, you get access to EVERY single step of the transition process from start to finish. The Association is the complete package, all in one place, including a built in network. The Association is why I have a job now, with great health benefits and plenty of resources. I couldn’t be happier."
