Banks Sponsoring International Students - 2023 SA
The 2022 version of this helped me a lot when recruiting, so now that I finished recruitment I thought it'd be a great time to update the list a little bit. I decided to group them by do they sponsor AND do they have a preference for US citizens/green card holders, for those two aspects matter more than bank specs to me. Also, please use this as a reference as a lot of banks do think about sponsorships on a case-by-case basis, and different offices (locality, vs MO/ .) make a huge difference. I'm target and diversity for the record, so please feel free to add your experience.
