The great desire of millions to realize their “American Dream” has led to competition and competitive spirit among emigrants. Work in the US is very much in demand. Get the right to work and stay in the country is not an easy task. But still it is possible.
Ways to find work.
You can start your way to the West in different ways. Below are the ways of how to go to America and get a job:
1. Reliable is the way to find work through friends, friends or relatives. It will not be difficult for them to explain to the newcomer the basic rules of moving. Do friends really know the situation with a particular job, with the development of the area of interest in their city or state. A big plus may be the presence of friends or relatives of their own company. Perhaps there is a vacant seat.
2. The options for working in the US can be viewed with the help of well-known search engines. Find the place of interest on your request will help Google, Bing, Yahoo. In the latter there is a special section called Career.
3. The third way is to find vacancies through websites where employers submit their offers for work.

6. When a person arrived with minimal knowledge of the labor market, without connections and acquaintances, the national communities are ready to help. In them from fellow countrymen usually receive exhaustive information.
We are looking for work through the Internet.
The most famous sites with an abundance of vacancies are the following:

Another important point to which you need to pay attention is the compilation of a resume. It should specify the specific purpose of the work, wishes for the field of activity and vacancy. Also need to briefly and clearly state:

What salaries in the US.
Salary in the US can hardly be obtained if you work illegally. This risk is unjustifiable on any side – both the unregistered employee and the employer will suffer. Time will be spent, but money will not be paid. Although cases with illegal workers are still not uncommon.
When you get a job in this way, you can get the minimum wage in the US – that’s $ 7-8 per hour. But the same money without risks is received by students and other people who represent the simplest working professions. For example, in a cafe, in salons and as assistants to experienced professionals.
Representatives of intellectual, responsible professions are very much appreciated in America. Accordingly, their wages are quite high. Highly paid professions include representatives of the IT sector, engineers, scientists, doctors, psychiatrists. The annual income of employees of these spheres can reach 100 thousand dollars.
In America, as in any other country, human experience, skills and achievements are very much appreciated. The more experience and the track record of success, the greater the salary is offered to such a specialist.
The US hardly recognizes the diplomas of other states. But, despite this, decent work in the US for Russians with excellent professional knowledge is a reality. The same applies to fellow Ukrainians.
How to start earning, only after arriving in the US?
At first, it is worth paying attention to working professions. Plus, that such places are always free in large numbers. These include:
Representatives of these professions receive a minimum wage (about 18 thousand dollars per year), but many emigrants are willing to go. Since the money is enough for the most needed food and shelter. In addition, you can settle in two or three places.
The choice in favor of working professions should be made by those whose English is at the primary level. In most cases, there is enough basic knowledge, since communication with people is minimized. The practice of colloquial English will gradually improve the level of language skills, help to overcome the language barrier and will allow to claim a place with higher requirements to the level of qualification.
Another option is & # 8212; social work in the USA. You can get a nurse and look after elderly, sick people, nannies, although this may require a sufficient level of language skills and professional skills (pedagogical, psychological, medical), and there are vacancies for cleaning services, walking pets? You can become a volunteer. American employers with great respect for job seekers who for a while have devoted themselves to disinterested help to those in need. It is worth noting that social work in the US is very common, there is a large number of various social programs.
Thus, work in America for the Russians becomes absolutely possible.
