Seeking advise

Hi there, I'm planning to move to the US, but I don't know where to move... any advised on which is the best place to stay? Also is it hard to look for a job? Which area is not super expensive? I need a fresh start. Where is the biggest Malaysian community in US?

I would appreciate any advise given. Thank u in advance.


You must have a sponsor and a work visa before to come in USA. But to find a company accepting to sponsor you, you have to prove that nobody in USA can make this job or having studied at least four years in University/Business school, etc... What are your qualifications and experience???

From my experience, many Universities have Malaysian Group Associations to network with. Since I am from Oregon, the one here that stands out is at Oregon State.
The link above is to their page . Happy to help you find direction if you need it however.

Hi Steffifi,

Sorry i forgot to mention that I'm already a citizen, but was born n raised in Malaysia. My dad is a citizen. I'm currently finishing my diploma in Business administration here in May. I've been working for the past 10 years. It just i don't know which city is the best to move to as I've never been to the states. Thank you for your reply.

Best Regards,

HI Lumberman,

Thank you so much for your reply. I'll give it a consideration.

Best Regards,

A lot will depend on potential job opportunities and personal interests when you move. If you prefer a bit warmer climate, San Diego is awesome without having the Az. heat to deal with in summers.  Portland has great spring, summer and fall and  is good if you don't mind a little grey in winter months. One of the reasons I chose it originally. also, if you like more of a change in seasons, I'd suggest Denver or Colorado Springs. Sunny, warm, dry and overall fun. I'd also try to visit a few places a bit as you can. I can help if you want to visit Portland / Seattle.  .....:)

Sorry ,I just saw the US Citizen part.
You will be just ok>
Avoid. CA, Chicago, Oregon etc The are democratic hangouts who have lost their heads.
Try Northern Virginia, Texas etc.


Which state is not that racist for an asian american? Im a bit concerned, as i saw a lot of things online thats happening there.

Hi Lumberman,

Thank you so much for your offer. I will keep in in mind when i get there. I still need to do a lot of research before i make a decisions.

Kind Regards,

I was born in Chicago and while a cool city, I think there are better options for weather. Feel free to send me a note when you decide to head to the U.S.  Glad to help !
