Can I live in San Francisco without knowing English?
Work as a tester in San Francisco. Is it possible to find a job in the IT field without knowledge of English and basic computer skills?
Hello everyone, with you Alexander Khvastovich, the host of the blog Hvastovich Live.
Today, my viewers and subscribers continue to amaze me, again they ask me just a stunning question, and it sounds like this: “Sasha, hello. Can you tell me Russian-language portals for finding accommodation in San Francisco? “Ah.
I just have some kind of shift from such questions, I do not know, some astral, probably, a jump occurs, because as a person can go to San Francisco (the most expensive place on earth) and ask some Russian-speaking portal for housing search? No, I will, of course, throw off the data. But how can you not know the commonplace site https://www.craigslist.org/about/sites, which is not necessarily Russian-speaking. Well, I, of course, immediately slip in suspicion, I begin to ask a person:
– Do you know English?
– Well, here’s the food to study at Portnow’s school as a full-time tester.
– Great. How are you with the computer, any basics?
“How’s your permission?”
“Well, in the process.”
I understand, you know, if a girl is traveling, she maybe does not know much English and does not know much about computers, but she will never go hungry, because there are 3 times more peasants here, 3 times more in the Silicon Valley of men, than women, that is, in any case, someone will lead to the restaurant to feed. But what will the man who comes here do? Well, if you can rent a room for $ 700 a month. And if you rent a single apartment (only to enter it, you have to pay for the first and last month, make a deposit), it’s easy to give $ 6,000.
As if without a language, without any skills in IT … Well, at least trite it is necessary to be able to configure the network so that you can ping another computer from one computer. I’m not saying that I’m some kind of IT person, I did not really know anything either when I started; but at least Windows itself I could reinstall, you know. And here�
But I really hope that a person really has a dream and a goal and he will go this way. Because it will be hard, it will be very difficult. And I hope, he will get a job and find a language. Perhaps he has a good supply of money. Maybe I just do not know. But, guys, please be sensible, think what you are doing.
You are going to the most expensive place on earth. Without language, without IT skills, go somewhere in IT to find work, do computers … and with some kind of incomprehensible work permit … This all can end very banal: a person runs out of money, he moves to live somewhere in the nearby countryside, where it is cheaper (in the same Sacramento), goes on working on a construction site, or a driver in a Uber (taxi), or somewhere else. Well, as well as here it will be necessary to somehow earn.
For me, such people are a great mystery, that is, either from great courage or from great ignorance, plus a person does not know what he is doing. In short, if you have conceived and decided to go here in the Silicon Valley, know – it is very expensive to live here. Here it is desirable to know the language, to have some basic knowledge of the computer, if you plan to go to testing, learn from Michael Portnov. And keep in mind that you need a good financial supply. And a work permit is required.
To all the rest I can say that if you do not have it and you go there, you are very big adventurers, courageous and purposeful people in life. I expect that you are there and that you will succeed. I wish you good luck, here. And if it does not work out, remember that you can go to Sacramento, live there cheaper, work on some work, earn some money, learn English, work out computers and come and try again. Something like that. Thank you all for now.
Moving to the US is difficult, but there are categories of people who can afford it:
& mdash; Investors. It is enough to invest from 1 million dollars and after 2 years all family members will receive permanent resident status (EB-5 visa).
& mdash; You can also open a branch of an existing company in America or buy a ready business in the US (from $ 100,000). This will give you the right to obtain a working visa L-1, which can be exchanged for a green card.
& mdash; Famous athletes, musicians, writers and other extraordinary people can move on a working O-1 visa.
& mdash; In case of oppression by the state for religious, political reasons or humiliation because of belonging to gay minorities, you can request political asylum in the US (asylum).
