For international faculty in the USA, the transition from international student to international faculty is one of the primary stressors. Although there have been an increasing number of international counselor educators (ICE), little is known about their experiences navigating through the job search and immigration processes. Understanding this topic could help with the recruitment and retention of diverse faculty who identify as ICE. Utilizing a decolonizing and indigenous research paradigm, 15 counselor educators shared their lived experiences of navigating through the job search and immigration processes. Data analysis revealed two broad themes: obstacle course and international identity. Implications of the results are discussed.
