Working in US universities can vary widely depending on the specific role you're interested in. Here are some general points to consider:

1. **Specialization**: The type of specialist required depends on the job you're pursuing. For academic positions, such as professorships, a Ph.D. or equivalent is often required. Other roles, like administrative or support staff, may have different educational and experience requirements.

2. **Salary and Qualifications**: Generally, having a higher level of education can lead to better-paying positions in academia. Professors and researchers with advanced degrees often earn higher salaries. However, salary can also depend on factors like the university's location and the specific field of expertise.

3. **Internships**: Whether internships are paid or not varies widely. Some internships in the US are paid, while others are unpaid. It depends on the university, the department, and the specific internship program.

4. **Interviews**: Interviews for university positions can involve multiple rounds, including phone or video interviews and on-campus visits for academic positions. Administrative and support staff positions may have different interview processes, often involving panel interviews, skills assessments, and reference checks.

5. **Graduate Degree**: For academic positions like professorships, having a graduate degree (usually a Ph.D.) is typically a requirement. However, non-academic roles may have different educational requirements, and some positions may accept a master's degree or equivalent experience.

6. **Citizenship**: US universities often hire international faculty and staff, so being a US citizen is not always a requirement. However, there may be visa and work authorization requirements, so it's essential to have the necessary documentation to work in the US legally. Visa options include H-1B for specialized workers and J-1 for exchange visitors, among others.

To pursue a career in a US university, it's crucial to research specific job postings, understand the qualifications required for the role you're interested in, and be prepared to meet any visa or work authorization requirements if you're not a US citizen or permanent resident. Additionally, networking within the academic community and seeking guidance from career services can be valuable in finding opportunities in US universities.

Many roles in university administration, such as admissions, financial aid, or student affairs, may require a bachelor's or master's degree, depending on the level and nature of the job.

Having a graduate degree is often beneficial for career advancement in academia, but it's not always mandatory for all roles. It depends on the position and university's requirements.
