How to find an international exchange student for your next job
Home-based work can be expensive, and you’re better off renting out a home rather than buying an apartment, a report suggests.
In fact, a growing number of students are choosing to take on the challenge of hosting a foreign-born guest, which could lead to higher salaries and better job prospects.
The Home and Garden Center’s latest report, published Monday, surveyed 8,000 students, most of whom were between 18 and 24 years old.
The report found that while the majority of students said they had been offered a job, the majority said they’d already taken the plunge.
In the first half of 2017, nearly 70% of students were considering a move to the U.S., the report found.
“The majority of respondents said they were considering moving to the United States after they had a summer internship,” the report said.
That’s because students are being forced to take a more demanding position in the U, which means they’re paying more for their time.
The home-based economy, where many people work from home, is also booming.
The number of jobs available for home-schooled students has tripled in the last decade.
“While there’s no doubt that foreign-educated students have benefited from our immigration policies, the number of positions available to these students has declined,” the Home and Gardening Center said in a statement.
“A growing number are finding it challenging to find a job that matches their education level and experience.”
In addition to earning higher wages, home-educated workers also get more job opportunities.
In the first quarter of 2018, home schoolers were offered a median annual salary of $37,000, compared to $27,000 for non-home-educated professionals, the report stated.
That’s about a 12% increase.
