Can i find a same job as what i have in the philippines,? would they consider my degree and experience? is it just a wishful thinking? or should i just start from the lowest position available?

There should be a degree equivalency tool which you can find online. A simple google search will do. It will let you know if the degree you earned in your country would be accepted here.

As for your experience, as long as they can contact the businesses you've worked for and verify that they are legitimate companies, you should be able to use your experience. If after several months of searching for a job with no success, I would go for a lower position to get some local experience.

I also have a bunch of job search tips on this thread, which you may find useful, if you're interested.

I used RapidVisa for my petition; a paperwork service. A K1 is $375.00 to use their hassle-free online application system.

I doubt you will find any retail manager working in a mall setting with a college degree, High School Diploma at best.

I would set your goals a little higher than working in a mall setting
