Hi I just arrived in the US a month ago. I'm on IR-1 visa and I just received my greencard and now i'm trying to find a job. How long were you able to find a job since you arrived here? and does it work to just send applications online? thanks

Just sending out applications may work, however it is the persistent person who follows up the application with a couple phone calls that get's the attention of a hiring manager.

Sometimes you need to also consider the unconventional "Get Job, trade time for money" My wife is working a home business, and is doing quite well at it.


OUR TIME LINE Please do a timeline it helps us all, thanks.

Is now a US Citizen immigration completed Jan 12, 2012.

We are currently networking even now ...we don't have noa2 but just having a network of individuals who know he will be here and can help us find even a small job to begin with is huge....Since marrying him I've become part of our muslim and pakistani community here so that helps so much!!! He already has two owners of businesses (small business albeit) that have said they will hire him until he can get his degree from IT school because here in USA his college degree doesn't hold much water so he will have to redo some programs or trainings.

That sounds interesting, does your wife earn enough on it? how does it work? thanks.

That's good EAbbas that someone will hire him as soon as he gets there.

Hi. Sending online appications works. Just make sure that you have an american standard resume. Try to look for entry level jobs first then go from there. It also helps if you can communicate very well. Go to company websites and look for open positions on their career section. Also try to go indeed.com, snagajob.com, careerbuilder.com. Volunteering is also big help for, based on my experience.Its a way for me to network to people. :-)

Hi there, I am a bit curious too about your wife's home business. I am looking into something like that as well because my husband is having a very important surgery soon and I will be at home taking care of him. Can you give us some ideas ? Thanks!
