Finding a job and work sponsorship in the USA

I have got accepted to work in US without sponsorship. However, it is very difficult to find a company that recruits an international students and pays the same amount as native candidates. There can be two reasons: 1. Many companies, especially small companies, are hesitate to hire a foreign employees as they think that they can do a lot of complicated paperwork; 2. Our experiences in homeland are not valued in US. What the author said that it is difficult for us to find a job within 3 months is true

hi im sherry from philipiines looking for a job in usa.im 36 single parent.im willing to work in usa any position of job.

STEFFIFI :

Hello, you can't get any job in USA. You must be high-graduated and/or sponsor has to prove it doesn't find US citizen or residents for the position.

I got my master in the USA and applied for OPT program. I am allowed to work here for one year. However, this program just allows me to work in certain positions. That makes me very difficult to find a job.

How about  H2A visa job.Am from TANZANIA,graduate computer studies but I think easy to work in USA through H2A VISA hold.(Agricultural). Where can I get agency of my field for recruiting for that position I use lots of websites searching for such job but seems late response..
help!

Current seeking for Agricultural job through H2A VISA hold.Looking for agency who recruit foreigners for H2A in USA.Additional graduate computer studies and enough experience in agricultural sector.

Thanks

Do you have a graduate in agriculture? What is your level in computer studies? Because without a Master level, it's very hard to find a job. Indeed, employer must prove he doesn't find an US citizen or legal resident to hold the position. So, in computering, there  are a lot of graduated.

Concerning agriculture, not sure that farms owners could pay and do steps to get you a visa. And there are already a lot of unemployed and ungraduated in USA to work in agriculture...

Good luck.

Hi Steffi, I feel appreciated for your useful sharing. I have been recent told a story that gives me many questions.  As I was shared, NASA usually accepted students from from their country to do internship in their corporation (about 3 months). I know a Korean girl was accepted by NASA. She studied about engineer. After 3 months working in a NASA plant in California, she looked for another internship in Florida. I usually wonder how an corporation recruits international students from their country for short term and manages her visa while they have a lot of choices in the US.Also, I wonder if her visa was still available after 3 months or the new company has to sponsor her visa. I am also curious if she could easily  be recruited because she is an engineer. As I know engineering is educated differently in different countries. In my country, engineers and lawyers did not earn much but they earned well in the US. If so, an engineer/lawyer in a foreign country can easily find a job in the US?

Have you heard/experienced about those circumstances? I am looking forward to hear your opinions. I have a friend who is an engineer in my country looking for a chance to work in the US because of his low pay. In my experience, it is difficult for international students, who graduated in the US, to find  jobs here because of many reasons. When I am interviewed, the companies always ask me if I am qualified to work here. Sponsorship is really a big problem.

I also looked for a career agency and companies that recruit international students in the US. I found an interesting website. In that website, it listed all jobs posted that are from companies who have hired international employees, including part-time and full-time job. You should check the google for more information. I lost the link some days ago so I can not share now.

I have no idea about h2a visa but you should look for jobs from areas that have a lot of farmers such as Michigan, Minnesota. Pls check Amazon too because they have many programs for people from different regions. There are not many career agency in the US that you can depend on. I use indeed, linkedin, monster to apply for jobs.

International students or young graduated can candidate for a trainee or internship in the 18 months after the leave school.

J1 visa is easier to get than a work visa (as H1B, the most used)

What is your graduate???

I am too graduate in English studies.
I have a big experience in private teaching.
Please let me know if there's any training or internship?
I am very biased towards culture

Sorry but graduate in English studies won't give you any job in USA. To teach English, there are already Americans... Why chosing a Moroccan rather a native???

English language is just a means of communication sir or madame.
I can do many other jobs,  like culture facilitation,  internship , security,  waiter .....etc

Unless your educational and professional back ground qualifies for employer sponsored visa you basically have the alternatives of spouse, investor, asylum seeker.Internships are tied to enrollment/recent graduTion in secondary education. No, there is no waiter visa.

I'm ranzanian from east africa i have got job in constuction company located in houston texas i applied on line what i wander i dont have qualification of constuction manager simply because constuction is out of my carrer also i'm going to work as constuction manager while i have diploma in development planning, mmmh they told they will sponsor me my visa, flight ticket. My family fear they tell me i'm going to be killed can it happen when i will rich houston texas?
Or u can Whatsap me ...

To be a construction manager in the US, you will need to improve your language skill.

To be a development planner in the US, you'll need a whole lot more than better language skill and a diploma from Tanzania.  You'll need a Master's degree (6 years in college), a state-issue certification (more study and state-wide exam), and years of practical experience. 

Your chance of being killed in Houston is much lower than your chance of being terminated from your construction job when your boss can't understand your report.

BTW, what's the purpose of giving out your telephone number and email address on a public forum?  No one will contact you to tell you whether you'll be killed when you reach Houston.  And even if someone does, can you trust his/her prediction?

I don't know about engineer, but lawyers from a foreign country cannot practice law in the US unless they pass the bar/s in the US.  The law in the US is different between states, so a lawyer who passes the bar in a particular state can only practice in said state and any state that offers reciprocity. 

For instance, lawyers from CA, AZ, FL, AL, DE, GA, ID, and KS can only practice in their respective states, but lawyers from NY can practice in NY and 11 other states, while lawyers from AR can only practice in AR and OR.  It's very complicated.

Hi I’m looking to get back to US and hopefully find a job as well. I had my bachelor degree from US in Interior Architecture with 2 years of experience and I would like to try my luck again for the 2nd time. Any idea where I should start? I have tried Linkedin, indeed and apply straight from the companies website but none give a positive reply (though I believe its because I applied from outside of US)


Thank you...

Hi,
