Ok, help me out here...

I need some ideas. My husband will start working soon (as soon as they feel like giving us the EADl....92 days and counting). Previously my husband played basketball professionally and coached in schools like a P.E. teacher. He doesn't have a teaching license or anything like that because that's not necessary there. He's 34 too so playing pro in the US is pretty much out of the question. He did not finish a degree but went to a university for 4 years in graphic design. But that was years ago and the technology has left him in the dust. The only other long term job he had was working on telephone switchboard maintenance. WHAT ON EARTH (ok, just the US) COULD HE WORK IN? I need some ideas. I need help thinking out of the box. I don't want him to have to just do some basic labor job forever. Oh, and I forgot to mention that for right now he just speaks Spanish...

Perhaps the best course of action is to work 'easy' jobs (sales person at a SPorts retailer might be a good choice) where he can pick up on English and get some $, enroll in a trade or technical school (depending on what his interests are; and that might require some formal ENglish first). I'd say that at best, he has 2 years of schooling ahead before a "real" job can be in the picture. The switchboard maintenance experience might lead into a Internet/TV cable/installer/technician where he would have basic training.
