Is it easy to find work in the United States?
Many followers ask me for recommendations to look for work in the United States and that’s why I decided to write this blog to help you understand what you should know when looking for work in the United States.
Is it easy to find work in the United States for a foreigner?
The answer is yes and no.
While the United States is an economy with full employment and full of opportunities, in order to work in the United States you need a work visa, for which you need an American company to hire you and sponsor you to get the residence card.
If you want technical details about the work visa do not stop reading my blog post about it.
To be able to look for work it is important that you have your resume, your updated Linkedin profile and a cover letter that will significantly increase your chances.
Below I leave the links of the most important websites to look for work in the United States!
