Now there is a sigh of relief for the global students who want to work outside the campus in the US, along with the internship which is related to their studies. These students can also look for some part time jobs in the campus premises to earn some financial aid while they are pursuing their studies.
It can be easily understood through the example of Chinese student, Yi Xu. She was able to get hold of two jobs in the campus as a language tutor in her native language, Chinese. She got this opportunity while studying in St. Mary’s College in Maryland. This college runs several linguistic programs in Spanish, French, and Chinese etc.
Because of the absence of the Chinese tutor she was instantly hired when she approached the Head of the Language Program for Chinese. Lots of students had graduated out from the college which paved the way for easy hiring of Yi Xu.
Yi Xu was made to attend calls and divert the calls to front desk which required great communication skills in English. She was confident about her communication skills but things did not turn out as planned. She faced the accent problem and was not able to understand and answer promptly to the queries.
Later on, she was transferred to the packaging room where she had to arrange the packages. She just needed to send the mailers to the students to collect their packages. This work required less interaction of her with the people.
After one Semester, she was more confident and comfortable in interacting with people and answer calls. She is still continuing her job in her Degree School which is School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University. Yi Xu started this job as a mean of earning money but it also helped her in increasing her social circle and made her some good friends too.
