Computer Tech from Mexico

Greetings,

My partner is a Professor of Computer Science in Mx with Masters degree, 5 years of teaching at current university, has published, several years experience working IT for Microsoft, and we are hoping she can find a job here in the States. Currently she is completing her TOFL studies for English proficiency.

Any tips on entering the tech job market here. She'd love to continue teaching but with the current climate, teaching jobs are scarce. We're wondering about IT jobs. Particularly in the Portland Metro area in Oregon.

She has a 10-year tourist visa. Our understanding is that she can stay just under 6-months, leave and come back, etc...

We're just jumping into this.

Sounds like she has a reasonable chance of getting a visa once she has a sponsor, as good, rare qualifications. She can use the tourist visa to do job interviews etc, but cannot work on it.

She should look at the websites of companies that do her sort of work, as well as universities in the area.

Linkedin for a start.

You misunderstand the tourist visa.

How do we misunderstand the Tourist Visa?

Thanks for the suggestions. I know she has to be here 3 months to the day before making a move to apply for work. We have a friend who is an immigration atty.

3 months?

I suggest you have a chat with your friend.
