Hello,

I am living in France and planning to apply to several US schools.

The choice of the school is highly dependent on the effectiveness of the partner club, as my wife and I want her to find a work quickly after we settle.

Can the following schools help her to find a job before her arrival in the US, or can they help her getting a pemit visa once she is in the US :

Harvard
Wharton
Booth
Kellogg
Columbia
Stern

More broadly, how efficient are the partner clubs to help the partner find a job ?

Thanks in advance for helping me.

I wouldn't count on your wife finding a job in the US. The partner clubs at schools should certainly be able to make some suggestions, but won't really have any pull in her getting sponsorship. It also depends on what kind of a job she is looking for. The partner clubs likely have knowledge of jobs on campus which likely wouldn't hire internationals. She would have to find a company that would be willing to sponsor a VISA for her which is becoming more and more difficult. Anything is possible I just wouldn't count on it.

Thanks a lot for your answer Skaballet.

I had heard that Wharton's support is strong; for the other ones I had no idea but it seems that it will be very tough. She is a brand manager in a FMCG company btw.

From what I know of the Kellogg JV club (for partners of students), it's like skaballet said: they can give support and help with suggestions on how to find jobs, but don't really have any influence on hiring decisions or visa sponsorships. Also, Kellogg's career office does not provide support for JVs.

A brand management position is going to be particularly tricky. A lot of US consumer companies don't like hiring internationals into brand management positions because they have concerns about how well the person understands US culture and, as a result, how effective they'll be in selling to US consumers.

any way she can move internally within her company to the US? if she's in a senior position at a big company, they're usually good about being supportive of such moves. probably worth trying.

Yes, this is an option we have considered, but it means we have to narrow the shortlist to only Booth and Kellogg, because her company is near Chicago.
