The employment situation in China is getting harder and harder. Many people will joke that you can go to New York to find a job (also known as 纽约找工作)! However, the employment situation in the United States is not as optimistic as we think. Before you go abroad, study agents (also known as 留学中介) and immigration lawyers (also known as 移民律师) often remind you that the life in the United States is not simple.
In the United States, most students choose to work after graduation, and the overall environment in the United States is not the same as that in China, which has strict requirements for academic qualifications. People in the US pay more attention to personal abilities, as long as you can show your value, then you can be hired. The reason why the employment rate of master’s degree or doctor’s degree is not as high as that of bachelor’s degree is that most of the jobs do not need people with high technical level to do.
On the other hand, the American education system determines the phenomenon that graduate students are not as good as undergraduates. Overall, the education system in the United States is very different from that in China. In most schools in China, a master’s degree is the only way to a doctor’s degree. While in the United States, undergraduates can directly go to the doctor.
Although in this process, there will be many classes with master students, but there is still a big difference in essence. Generally speaking, the position of master’s degree teaching in the United States is to train advanced technical talents; and the doctoral students are positioned to cultivate creators, that is, those who are committed to doing research. Therefore, the so-called direct students have omitted the opportunity to become technical talents. In the future employment, even if they work in enterprise, most of them can do is research, not technical.
Before employment, legal status is also an important obstacle. It is not easy to apply for either h1b visa (also known as h1b 签证) or o1 visa (also known as o1签证), and a lot of efforts will be spent on the preparation of h1b visa materials and o1 visa materials (also known as h1b 签证材料), which increases the difficulty of employment.
