Default Jobs that give $700-$900 a week for students

Hi,

How difficult/easy is it to find a job that gives $700-$900 a week for international students (20 working hours/week allowed) around Richardson/UTD or in UTD? What jobs are available?

Thanks

Woah, I've never seen anything like that. If anyone answers positively I want to know.

I meant side jobs.

Well, what about jobs with higher salary with only 20 hours/week?

Sorry, I'm clueless about jobs there around Richardson. And I don't know what to expect. So please give me a clue. Thanks.

Being an international student, unless you have gotten prior authorization from USCIS, you can only work on-campus. If you're caught working off-campus without authorization, you can be in BIG trouble.

Most retail jobs will pay close to that, and waiting tables can earn good money, too.

Since you are an international student I assume English is your second language. A lot of places are in need of bilingual, and multilingual employees. Some places simple need translators, so definitely highlight that skill. Around Richardson there is the biggest need for people who can speak Spanish, Vietnamese, and Chinese.

UTD may have a student services department that can help find you a job. Maybe working in the school bookstore or something like that.

For international students, now there is a "practical training" option that u can use in the summer. I have heard that this permission is not too tough to get if you want to work in your area of education. Do some googling and you will get an answer.
