:luv: I received my Green card last November and SSN last December .After a 1 month vacation in my country,I returned in US last January 15 and starting searching jobs tru internet. And I am very amazed not expecting that some Agents and Employers replied so instantly and fastly . But having no Drivers license yet keeps me difficult on accepting their Interview offers because of far distance from my place. If I will be lucky enough ,I prefer jobs 7 miles up to 15 miles distance that will be easy for me to commute by bus or train. My obejective and goal now is to have an in-country experienced no matter what job is. Being an experienced Admistrative Support and Customer service, my dream is to be on field of Airline,Airports,Hotels and Restaurant. Because I love to meet different kinds of people everyday.After 2 weeks of staying home and just searching jobs tru internet, I get out of my cave and take a bus to the mall and look for a sign "HIRING NOW" I need an incountry job and why not apply for any jobs no matter what it is ??? I signed-up application on different store as a Sales Associate and lastly enter the Macy's staff and ask if they were hiring now. YES were hiring. I eneterd the executive office , signed up application,ask if want to be interviewed right away and then that's it! I grab this job oppurtunity!!!. I am now proud of being Sales Associate of Macy's :dance: I am scheduled for training and orientation soon ,then start this job. macy's is located just 2.7 miles from my house.Just 1 bus ride.LUCKY! :dance:And one more thing.. there is a big discount for store associate including family shopping too! This is just alittle experienced of mine and I hope this experienced will help share someone for those peoplewho is just starting life in America. :luv: GoodLuck to all of you... (F)

Congratulations!

I think you have a very good attitude. I agree with what you said about applying for all jobs, no matter what it is. Everyone has to start somewhere! My wife did the same thing as your idea, and quickly found a job and is very happy.

Welcome to the United States and Congrats on your first job! Well done!

As a new residence here...My work experienced is only outside America. Many of the employers are hiring only those applicants that has an In country experienced I am little confident about it. Entry level or company training jobs is also a great oppurtunity for those who have no job experienced here in US. If I will be lucky to hired by them it is a very great chance on my career. Right now, I accepted the job at Macy's as a part time job(PM) shift only...So...if someone will hire me for a better job w/c is line in mycareer,well....that would be great...instead of no income while waiting for a day job or full time job...I grabbed this oppurtunity..thank you Macy's...this would start my experienced in my career in US. By the way...US in now hiring for postal jobs and goverment career nation wide...they will send you reviewer for the exam,tips to past for the exam, and give informations also on government offices with available jobs near to your place.Soon also I will take the exam because govenrment jobs have lots of benefits on it if you will be hired.

Do you have to have a green card to get a job in the US? My fiancee will arrive here on April 15. How long

does it take to get a green card? Does she have to get a social security number before she can work?
