Applying for jobs in US while waiting?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Dh's interview is next Monday, I think he should start applying for jobs in the US already. Once he has the IR-1 he can truthfully say he's legal to work in the US, right? So he might as well say that now? Or at the latest, wait till he gets that? He shouldn't have to wait till he gets to the US and has the actual Green Card right? The kids and I are over here in the US waiting for him, so I would like him to get a job asap!

No and no. He becomes a resident / green card holder when he enters US. Then he will be.

Probably a waste of time until he is in country unless ha has highly sought after skills.

Better to research who he is going to contact. The stamp in his passport is what he needs to work.

A lady who worked in the Ciudad Juarez Consulate told us. Maybe because my husband and I are living in Mexico and plan to move together.

There is a lady in this website whose Husband is from Germany. A pretty similar case to ours. She and her husband got job offers from family members in USA. They went to the interview and got the immigrant visa.

This is a very different case. If you are in USA and I believe you were the sponsor I think we could start looking for jobs, check the opportunities, salaries, but start going to interview until he travels to USA.

He can start looking for jobs at anytime. There is no problem with that. He won't be able to accept and begin employment until he has his visa on hand though. There is no harm in start looking.
