What do I need to do to get someone to help me get a job in the US?

What do I need to do to get someone to help me get a job in the US?

NOBODY can get you a job. You must do it by yourself. Looking for work is a full-time job. Or study, train, network with friends and family, go to job fairs (plural). In other words, get out of your butt and work to find a PAYING job.

Many municipalities have FREE job training days where you can learn how to find a job. Try the local unemployment office; they can help you get started even when you are not applying for benefits.

America is in a massive depression right now. 40 million people have lost their jobs in 2020. Unemployment is at a record high for 75 years.

Keep an eye out for the US unemployment rate in the news. Until you see that it has dropped below 6%, there will be no work in the US or Canada either.

What you know about the US from 2019 and before no longer applies.

I've been trying for 2 years in a row to get a job working hard to do it. However, I am part of the "lost generation" (people who graduated from college or entered the workforce during the recession of 2007-2011).

I am 28 years old now and everyone I know is unemployed or underemployed. Because as soon as we were supposed to enter the workforce, millions of much more skilled Americans lost their white-collar jobs. Which meant we had to compete with 10 times more qualified people for a job ... Any job. The starting positions were now closed to us because the sacked masses took them. Youth unemployment is real

I've been trying for 2 years in a row to get a job working hard to do it. However, I am part of the "lost generation" (people who graduated from college or entered the workforce during the recession of 2007-2011).

I am 28 years old now and everyone I know is unemployed or underemployed. Because as soon as we were supposed to enter the workforce, millions of much more skilled Americans lost their white-collar jobs. Which meant we had to compete with 10 times more qualified people for a job ... Any job. The starting positions were now closed to us because the sacked masses took them. Youth unemployment is really high and the glass ceiling is practically level with the ground.

Now that hiring has started again, companies now have all of these things against them. Why haven't you worked for so long? Why haven't you had a steady job? I have lost many friends to suicide and depression due to pressure from the American Society on success. Better to be a murderer than a failure. We are trained to disdain failures. "They didn't work hard enough." Because of this, there are no programs to help unemployed youth with benefits like other countries do.

Now that the recession is over, we forget and 21-year-olds are taking jobs that we should have taken 8 years ago. Being poor means that something is wrong with you. I'm poor so I guess something's wrong with me. It is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

But Americans' obsession with success has made me think about suicide more times than I can count. I don't want fancy things, just a job and a roof over my head, but even that is asking too much. All our lives they told us how special we were and all kinds of nonsense, but now that children 10 years younger than me are going to be my boss and have no experience in life, I realize that all this capitalism and democracy it's a prank. It's just a thinly veiled illusion of existence. How can anyone be truly happy in our little bubbles of sick consumers? We must find a way out. I'm not going to believe this shit about the American dream for another second.

Remember, the H1-B or L1 visa is nothing, some time after working in the US You will realize that the only way to really prosper or move up the job ladder is to not be sponsored anyway. You have to become a permanent resident or become a naturalized citizen. So I will give a description of the ways to get a green card.

In addition to the answers already well voted, there are other routes, also known as 'System game':

1) A good number of service-based companies (quite small compared to TCS, Infosys, etc.) operated especially by people from Telugu speaking states of India will process H1B by bloat.

In addition to the answers already well voted, there are other routes, also known as 'System game':

1) A good number of service-based companies (quite small compared to TCS, Infosys, etc.) operated especially by people from Telugu speaking states of India will process H1B by inflating their resume with bogus experience (usually 3 to 7 years). or even more) and skills that you don't really have. Your job then is to diligently learn the skill they teach you in their in-house facilities advertised with a 'free hosting' tag. They will find a client to work with easily, clearing the telephone interview on your behalf and you would appear at the client's location to do the work. What do they get in return? Certainly, a good billing by the client, in addition to a division of his salary saying between 20 and 40% of what he is actually paid, in what both mutually agree previously. Now, to process your H1B application, they have to take you out of the resident labor market test (called LCA in US) and to do so, they have to show that 'there is no competent US / green card holder' to perform that particular job. This will be done by posting an advertisement in electronic / print media on remotely read / viewed pages to see that not many will apply for that position. Even if some Americans did, they will most likely be rejected for "technical / competitive" reasons. You can exercise this option by approaching 'consultants in Hyderabad' and paying them a certain commission which is usually above 1 lakh INR ($ 1600-2500) or getting a master's admission at 'a random university (no matter how worse)' in and around Houston, Dallas, San Francisco, Los Angeles , Chicago, Boston, Washington, NJ, Baltimore, Detroit, Miami preferably (the reason being that these are the areas where most of Telugu resides in addition to business including IT running here), but not necessarily . This is the preferred route for most so-called Telugu-speaking 'students' in the US to earn an H1B. Certainly there are very good technicians from the Telugu speaking states, so I am not stereotyping them. By the way, these sweatshops also sponsor you a 'Green Card'. a random college (no matter how worse) 'in and around Houston, Dallas, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Washington, New Jersey, Baltimore, Detroit, Miami preferably (the reason is that these are the areas where most of Telugu resides besides businesses (including IT running here), but not necessarily.

PS - some of these sweat shops are also run by Tamil / Gujaratis, although fewer in number.

2) T1 Visa - Get a blue collar job, say something like domestic help / babysitter / babysitter or cook etc with Indians permanently established in USA / Diplomats prepare to falsify salary on paper when you apply a visa, then he runs away from his employer and shows up at an organization of 'human rights activists' asking for help on grounds of poor pay and human trafficking, they will sue his employer and arrange to get him a 'T Visa' as soon as the higher the profile of your so-called employer the better media attention, hence the better chances of getting a 't visa' and ultimately a 'green card'

3) Marry an American - You can do that, choose the gender you want to marry and you can do it by persistent online harassment and get married and get a green card or you can have a pre-arranged spouse ready to fool the authorities for some time . monetary benefit.

4) Asylum: Apply for asylum in the US, for reasons of persecution, but if you are from India, you must be from a 'minority' to access this route. I know some Sikhs who did that.

4) Illegal Immigrant - Smuggle into the United States illegally, raise there to have a child who will be an American by default, and then become part of the executive action to legalize your residency.
Health!!

If you are not yet in the US and you are legally authorized to work (either as a US citizen or legal permanent resident), it will be very difficult. Work visas are only issued to US companies for the purpose of importing foreign nationals to fill positions that cannot be filled by Americans.

Therefore, you will need to get a US company to hire you. There are several Indian companies with subsidiaries in the US that place temporary software developers in jobs with major US corporations by contract. If you are in India, you need to apply to those contracting companies and see if your e

Therefore, you will need to get a US company to hire you. There are several Indian companies with subsidiaries in the US that place temporary software developers in jobs with major US corporations by contract. If you are in India, you need to apply to those hired companies and see if your education and skills match what their clients are looking for. You must have at least an appropriate bachelor's degree, usually in Engineering or Computer Science, to qualify under US law.

The other way to do this would be to attend an American university and complete a master's degree in Engineering or Computer Science. Once you have completed the degree, you will be eligible to apply through the university for what is called "optional practical training" (OPT). OPT allows you a couple of years of work in an American company, theoretically so that you can practice what you have learned in school. Once you are in OPT status, you can try to convince the company that has hired you to sponsor you for an H-1B visa, valid for up to six years of temporary work in the US This is not an easy path. nor economical, however. Tuition for the master's degree can cost up to US $ 200,000,

Good luck.

Thanks for A2A. Somehow, I can't see the comment section for more details. Anyway, based on what you indicated, let me answer the question There are options (if any) like traveling with your husband assuming you get a visa, getting someone in the US to sponsor your migration, applying to the US. A special refugee status, etc. I assume they are not applicable or of interest, so you need to find a mechanism to move to the US and get to work there. For a job in the US, ...

I think the previous answer has given the details. Let me add more details.

You have to realize that some company has to make you come to the United States. What I mean is that it is not something you can do on your own.

(Exception: you can get the visa if you make an investment in the US that provides job opportunities)

You can join a company in India that is ready to transfer you to its branch in the US (It can be an American company with a branch in India or vice versa) after about a year. This is called the L1 Visa and is normally not subject to lottery etc. Have this condition explicitly discussed and agreed

You have to realize that some company has to make you come to the United States. What I mean is that it is not something you can do on your own.

(Exception: you can get the visa if you make an investment in the US that provides job opportunities)

You can join a company in India that is ready to transfer you to its US branch (It can be a US company with a branch in India or vice versa) after about a year. This is called the L1 Visa and is normally not subject to lottery etc. Have this condition explicitly discussed and agreed upon while negotiating salary. The work period of one year in the company is the minimum for such a transfer.

If the company is not ready or unable to apply for the L1 visa, H1B is the next opportunity. It is the work permit (and compared to this, L1 has some advantages and some disadvantages) that the company has to apply for. There is no minimum period, but there is a catch: there is a lottery as the number of H1Bs is limited and a lottery is normally held in April for work that starts in October and the lottery closes in April.

The third option (definitely with a risk) is to study a little in the US and get permission to stay there for a few months and look for work. Since American companies can interview you directly in the United States, you may have a better chance. Again it is an H1B and the number of H1B is limited. Cost is a big issue here.

So your best bet is to discuss with some companies in India that have US branches and negotiate an H1B (remember: you have the lottery problem) or L1 (preferably).

There are some companies in India that are ready to apply for your H1B and if your H1b is approved they ask you to quit your current job and take a trip. But be aware of the potential for fraud / unethical behavior at some of these companies. Make a good evaluation of them before sending them your documents.

Thanks for your question. I don't think there is an easy way to get a job in the United States based on being a non-US citizen. So far, one of the ways is to get a technical degree from an institution in your home country and then apply for a graduate school in the United States.

Many people who find work in the United States from their home country already have Vance degrees or clinical skills that are in short supply. And one still has to go through the visa lottery system and their chances of being eligible for the lottery increase with the titles of Nicole or Vance.

There is also the intra-corporate transfer that some multinational companies can do for you and includes a transfer from the subsidiary in your country to the corporate headquarters in the United States.

Generally, the easiest jobs to get are jobs that pay only for results ... jobs only on commission. For example, door-to-door magazine subscription sales, ticket stamping sales, carpet cleaning sales, mobile phone sales at newsstands, cable TV conversion sales, chimney cleaning sales, etc. In some places, auto dealer sales may be on commission only.

The cost to the employer is zero ... few hours of training. People who fail leave it in a few days.

However, those who are successful can often move very quickly to jobs with a stable base salary plus commissions. My daughter did it very successfully.

It is quite difficult to get a job in India and then move to USA, as the company will have to sponsor your H1B application and if you apply your visa next April, and if you get the H1B visa, the company will have to wait until the next year in October when you can start working for them.

If you are not working for a US company since last year, you also cannot get the L1 visa directly as you would not be eligible if you join a US multinational now.

An alternative would be to enter a US university and earn a US degree, that way you will learn something new and create a stronger profile while you can be with your spouse.

The route many have taken in the past is to move to the US with their spouse as a dependent and apply for H1B next year through consultancies. If your visa is approved, next October you will be eligible to work in the US Until then, have fun.

Assuming you reside in the US If you keep applying through Monster etc, you will never get a job. You have to find a way to approach the hiring manager directly. In many cases, the hiring manager already has one person in mind before posting ads. So your game should be to contact the hiring manager beforehand.

One of the best strategies that worked for me is LinkedIn. Since many hiring managers are in LI, you need to find hiring managers in your industry in LI. Go online and little by little, over time, develop a repository with them. Also, after you have read about their work, compose an email that

The idea is to find a way to show them how it can be useful to them. Also, remember that quality over quantity is important when applying for a job. It is better to apply with a properly personalized resume for each job than a bulk application with the same resume.

India has a great environment for people to be great. Despite all the protests, Mom continues to bring chocolate for her beloved son at 5 in the afternoon. Even if you crash the car, Dad is willing to withdraw his PPF so you can stand out. You should take advantage of the situation (not them). Set three-year goals for being excellent.

Look beyond
the US I love the US If you're great though, there are other places that aren't bad: Singapore, Australia, UK. Obviously, immigration to the United States is difficult. Other countries may be more accessible.

Lastly, if you focus on excellence, Indian companies may come to you and promise to send you abroad.

By the way, I have no problem with your goals, there is nothing wrong with coveting to go to the USA.
