Work experience is an important part of being accepted into a medical, dental, pharmaceutical or nursing school. It helps show your interviewers that you have real world experience and are able to balance your work, school and social life.
The best kind of work experience is that which relates to the profession you are studying. Though job opportunities can be limited for international students, there are many ways you can connect the job you do with the job you wish to do in the future. Jobs allow you to connect and interact with a variety of people, and can help you to obtain a social security number in the U.S.
