      Hi there,

      here are some lead questions you can follow up:

      Ask alumni and current students from your target schools (ask for contacts from the schools) and ask them about their opinion on the schools' career service?

      Ask your target companies or their competitors about what they think of these schools.

      Check the schools' websites or ask the career department people or program management people about which firms come to campus to recruit.

      Ask the schools' career service about where their graduates found a job, how fast, and how much experience they have with placing students of your nationality.

      Best wishes
