Every year more than 2 million students graduate from universities. However, due to the intense competition in the job market, about 10 percent graduates are unsuccessful in acquiring a job offer within six months of graduation. There are often more inherent constraints and challenges for international students. This is a high waste for both national labor resource and students' personal values. Besides the economic situation, the major reasons for graduate unemployment are they don't know which position fits their ability and they cannot pass either the general interview or the technical interviews. The international students have more difficulty due to language barriers and their lack of knowledge about American company cultures.
