Experience to find overtine job when studying in the US
However, exchange students can not work for an outside company operating in the school campus if that company does not provide direct services for students. For example, a student can work in the restaurant, but could not works in construction companies operating in the school campus.
Work outside the campus makes one organization or merged agency with schoolhave to link to the school curriculum or relate to the research project is funded by the government. Employment must be part of the curriculum.
Campus’s employment is limited to 20 hours one week of course. Exchange students are allowed to work full time during vacations or summer holidays. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has the right to allow a student to work over 20 hours a week if they think the emergencies allow that. If the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services allows a student to work over 20 hours a week, they will post a notice in the Federal Register. However, students still have to prove toresponsible school officials that job is necessary to avoid economic hardships caused by emergencies. School officials will note on I-20 in accordance with the notice in the Federal Register.
Students completed learning will not be worked in the school campus excepting for approval in applying to work in practical training program (Practical Training).
United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) lay down that students may work in school campus if it does not take the place of US civilians. However, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) always let the school decide and never explain more specific word about this matter. Some commentators for the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will intervene if someone writes a complaint, such as trade unions. However, if a job always is used for the work students, that job is considered to be not suitable for exchange students with F-1 or M-1
For a student which is changing school, job can only be approved by the school with power on the SEVIS file of that student. A student with the first F-1 visa is allowed to work more than 30 days before the course starts.
Like other companies, universities are required to verify the working license before hiring a foreign student to work in the campus. This means the school must comply with the requirements of I-9 Form (Employment Eligibility Verification). There is a problem that students are hired with Social Security Number (SSN) card or not. Many institutions, including universities, require employees to have Social Security Number card (SSN). However, Social Security Number card (SSN ) is not required to fill in an I-9 form. Therefore, a university can ignore requiring hired exchange students must have Social Security Number card (SSN) if it does not affect US workers. However, students still have to hand in papers for identification (like a passport) and to verify working authorization (such as I-20 and I-94).
What doUniversity have to do for a student without Social Security Number (SSN) card? The school has to deduct tax under the law to pay off the cost of Social Security (Social Security).
In the past, without Social Security Number card is not a big problem because in just a few days Social Security Administration (SSA) issued the card Social Security Number (SSA). Employment in the campus is a good reason to apply for Social Security Card Number (SSN). However, since September 11, 2001, the Social Security Administration (SSA) has verified documentation and immigration rules with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services before confering Social Security Number. Social Security Administration also verified the school whether the exchange student registers school full-time or not and should be allowed to work in the campus or not. These procedures cause a student have to wait several weeks before getting the card Social Security Number (SSN).
