International students are eligible to work in the US with a Curricular Practical Training (CPT) authorization, which is administered by SUA. Beyond a standard offer of employment letter noting the internship start and end dates, there are no additional fees, paperwork, or recruitment documentation required of employers. Once an offer has been made, international students can start the CPT authorization process through our office and may begin working after the official authorization has been issued. Once initiated, the CPT authorization process typically takes 2-3 weeks to complete.
Reach out to our career office directly to help streamline your efforts at finding the right fit for your position.

Soka University is excited to highlight an opportunity for our corporate and nonprofit partners to offer short-term, professional, paid work experiences to current students through Micro-Internships. Through Micro-Internships, students can demonstrate their skills, explore career paths, and develop their professional networks. Unlike a traditional internship, these paid opportunities typically range from 10 to 40 hours of work, and most can be completed remotely. Not only does this help the students, but it allows you as employers to get immediate support and enhance your company’s pipeline for future interns and new hires.
