Could you give me any tips on how do I do that? Like one thing is checking out LinkedIn and Glassdoor for opportunities ... Any other way? Unfortunately I do not have any seniors from my college whom I can ask. The target industry I am aiming at is semiconductor fab and related areas.. like CVD/PVD etc.. But as I said before things may change and I might work in other areas.. But how do I do the 'groundwork' as you have so nicely put it.
I was unable to find specific resources for Internationals..
The US Bureau of Labor Statistics offers some nice data..but I did not find anything about international candidates (was kind of expected, but still..).

lycurgus: The two threads I've put in point #2 in my signature below every post, should get you started on understanding how hiring happens for many (if not most) non-research positions. Read through them carefully and completely, and then ask us any questions you have at that point. Once you understand what employers are looking for in a prospective employee, or what factors they might generally consider, go from there to ask insightful and pointed questions to network with your seniors and other people in your chosen industry better.

1) Please mention as many details as possible about your academics, research and work-ex, in terms of projects worked on, technologies used, roles/responsibilities handled, papers published/presented, awards/honors obtained, etc. All those have to be put in the misc details section of your UniSearch profile if you expect any help on Edulix.

2) Please take some time out to read this and this thread in their entirety. PLEASE do that before asking questions about universities from a comparison perspective, or jobs, or coursework, or H-1B visas, or "placements", irrespective of which univ/department/program/major you're applying to.

lycurgus Connect with people who have completed or are about to complete respective course. You do ground work with connecting people via linkedin, and such. If you don't use linkedin then look on the lab members (MS/Phd) of faculty web pages. Talk with them via phone or e-mail.

1) Like The_Chharraa has said above, use LinkedIn. In fact, I'll go one step ahead of what he's said. He's told you what to do if you're not using LinkedIn. I'll go ahead and say this: if you're not using it, start. Now. Sooner the better. Get used to using it, get used to reaching people through LinkedIn. That's one of the most powerful tools in your arsenal and being able to use it effectively will help you immensely in your internship and job search.

2) In addition to the above, network using the Indian students' associations at different universities. There are generally a boatload of Indian students at almost every US school, and you'll find more than a few people willing to answer questions. Then ask them to refer you to people from other universities they do, who can give you info about other universities. That's how you expand your network and reach.

3) In the second thread I've linked to in point #2, there is a link to a very informative thread about how to start making the most out of LinkedIn. Start there.

1) Please mention as many details as possible about your academics, research and work-ex, in terms of projects worked on, technologies used, roles/responsibilities handled, papers published/presented, awards/honors obtained, etc. All those have to be put in the misc details section of your UniSearch profile if you expect any help on Edulix.

2) Please take some time out to read this and this thread in their entirety. PLEASE do that before asking questions about universities from a comparison perspective, or jobs, or coursework, or H-1B visas, or "placements", irrespective of which univ/department/program/major you're applying to.
