  Hiring International Students


  • International students are eligible for study-related employment through Pace's Career Services Program.
  • Students may work part-time (up to 20 hours a week) during the school year and full-time during the summer and vacations.

  The Hiring Process

  • Once you've interviewed and extended an offer to a Pace international student for an internship, you must inform the Career Services office of your decision. You do not have to do any paper work.
  • The student must obtain written authorization to work for you from the Pace International Student Advisor. An endorsed I-20 ID or letter from their sponsoring organization is the student's legal proof of employability and must be presented to you prior to employment.
  • All taxes, except social security taxes, are deducted from the international student's wages. For additional information visit the Internal Revenue Service site concerning international taxpayers.
