Hey VJ-ers,

is there someone knows any website to find a job in US? I am an Interior Designer, I took my Bachelor Degree in Indonesia. I am looking for job in my field, as my experience more than 5 years in this field. I plan to go to college in US later, or maybe some short course if it necessary. From what I've heard, it comes to zero experience when I get there (all my experience here in Indonesia will not be counted) and my degree can not be considered. Please share any thought, info, or comment here. I would be very happy and appreciate it.

Thank you,

Dina

Monster.com, hotjobs or indeed.com are popular ones

However, in this economy, US citizens are given priority over expensive immigrants

Good luck

You can also try the job site for your state too. I tried all the main websites and could find nothing. When I started using my states job site I found a job much quicker.

www.indeed.com is one of the best as it collates from most of the other well-know job sites - so you only have to look at the one not try them all separately.

Most state unemployment websites have a link to jobs - here is an exampole of the Orange County, CA one. http://www.caljobs.ca.gov/

I don't understand, what is it for example?

I live in Nebraska found this site and found my job on it. https://neworks.nebraska.gov/

Pretty sure each state should have something like it, I found mine by just searching google for state job websites.

Hey VJ-ers,

is there someone knows any website to find a job in US? I am an Interior Designer, I took my Bachelor Degree in Indonesia. I am looking for job in my field, as my experience more than 5 years in this field. I plan to go to college in US later, or maybe some short course if it necessary. From what I've heard, it comes to zero experience when I get there (all my experience here in Indonesia will not be counted) and my degree can not be considered. Please share any thought, info, or comment here. I would be very happy and appreciate it.

Thank you,

Dina

I am not sure why you think your experience or degree doesn't count - unless a bachelor in Indonesia is not a 4-year university-level degree. Many foreign bachelors translate and why wouldn't your experience count? My husband used both his experience and his degree to get a job.


AOS for my husband
8/17/10: INTERVIEW DAY (day 123) APPROVED!!

ROC:
5/23/12: Sent out package
2/06/13: APPROVED!

I had some luck using www.simplyhired.com, but I actually ended up finding my job on Craigslist.

I don't see why your experience wouldn't count. Prospective employers will likely weigh your foreign experience differently, but I definitely wouldn't say it doesn't count.

I also don't agree that US citizens are being given priority over immigrants. A good employer will consider things like experience, education and competence of applicants, not their citizenship.
