How to Find a Job:
There are thousands of resources, both on- and off-line, to choose
from when looking for a job or developing a career strategy. In the
U.S., your resume (curriculum vitae
or C.V.) and your interview are the most crucial aspects of getting
a job, although it helps immensely to network first, or get to
know, potential job contacts through industry and social events like
parties and meetings, before you start applying.

Information for Non-Residents:
Before you can obtain a work visa, you
must have a firm job offer with a U.S company. In the current U.S. business
climate, it is vastly easier to secure a job as a foreign national if
you are a high-tech professional. Many high-tech US companies are scouting
internationally for workers with skills in computer languages, applications
development, database and network administration and MIS management.
These companies have lobbied Congress to increase the cap on H-1B
visas, and a bill being moved rapidly through Congress may significantly
raise this limit in the coming years.
Some large U.S. corporations are looking overseas to help fill their
available summer and seasonal jobs. For more info, check the Council
