Searching for a Job in America as a Foreign Worker

Although working abroad may sound like an adventure for many, it is also a difficult task that requires a lot of planning. Everything starts with a good application. But there are different types of job permits and applications in the USA. An employment visa lawyer can help determine if you meet all the requirements and guide you through all aspects of the application process.

Job permits

It is important you have the appropriate visa if you want to work in the United States as a foreigner. One of the most popular visas is the F1 student visa. But you must meet certain requirements such as being enrolled full-time in an American school, and show you have the funds to finish your degree. Also, you must show you are not planning to leave your home country residence. You must apply for your visa at your home country’s U. S. embassy.

The application process

Most people apply for a job on the internet these days. There are great sites out there such as Craigslist and Linkedin that help people from all over the world find the job they are looking for. It doesn’t matter what’s your professional background, there is something out there for everyone. It is important to avoid sites that charge you fees since it can get very costly. Most trustworthy sites are free of charge. Make sure you read carefully your job listings and apply for as many jobs as you can, even if you don’t have all the qualifications. Some unwelcomed jobs can turn into great opportunities to advance your career.

Create a good resume and cover letter

A good resume can be a great tool to help you find a job. They should convince potential employers that you are a good candidate and they will be lucky to have you. If you have several skills, you can create several resumes and target different jobs. You will have more chances if you have a few variations of your resume. If you applied online, make sure to write a brief profile to introduce yourself and upload a professional picture. You should let any potential employers know what are your professional goals.

You should also have a good cover letter for each important job you have applied for. Make sure you personalize it and take some time to research about the companies you are interested in. Provide several ways to get in touch with you such as e-mail, phone number, Skype, and mailing address. Just make sure you keep your application letter or cover letter short and to the point.

The interview

This is one of the most difficult aspects of the application process, especially if you are not fluent in English. Hang in there. As long as you meet most of the job requirements, prepare for the interview and research the company, you will do great! Remember to dress professionally no matter what type of job you are applying for.
