It depends on the job you are looking.

I would say if you are looking for entry level or minimum pay job then you should be able to find a job fairly easy in the USA.

If I was new in USA I would look at WalMart (largest employer in USA) or Costco or Home Depot or Lowes if you just wanted to start working, I think most of these place pay above minimum wage salary....

Will it be easy to get hired on these companies? That is what i am planning to do. Then try to save up for the licenses and possibly school.

Getting a job at a entry level job isn't very difficult. It helps if you know someone, but you can do it on your own. Target, Walmart etc are very large employers and always need people.

Once she started to job hunt, it took Chinook a few months to get her first job here in the U.S.

She finally got hired as an RN. On her resume, she used her experience as a volunteer RN in 'Pinas. We think it helped her land that first job.

^^^ What type of license?

In teaching. I did pass the prc board exam for teachers here in PI. And as per my research, i need to have my transcripts evaluated then needed to take the exams... Or go thru the ACP..

Everything needs a lot of $$$$ so better not stress on finding an ideal job upon entry :)

You're going to get a job before you know it.

If you don't drive, you might want to start taking driving lessons right away because you'll probably be driving to work.
