Campus Jobs

CyHire allows students to search for jobs that employers have posted. These are mostly hourly jobs on campus that allow students to supplement income while in school. As an international student, you can only work on campus unless you have permission from ISSO (International Students and Scholars Office) for academic related work off campus.

I gained confidence. ISU provided many diverse opportunities to practice leadership skills, research skills, and interaction with others. I also gained love from ISU. There were so many people I have met who encouraged and cheered me to study and step outside of my comfort zone to explore the world. The love and confidence I gained developed me as a better person so that I can take further steps in a bigger society.
