Hi! I.m have been here in the US for 3 years now. And applying for an IT field but always get rejected. All my credentials are from the Philippines.

I was a Grad of BS. Computer Engineering at La Salle. & I work at a public office and had my "Masters of Public Admin non-thesis". my coworker here told me to go to a any school (Lewis univ since it is la sallian school) and to evaluate my transcript of record to a school. I don't know how to do it. So anyone could help me?. 
thank you.

How many jobs have you applied for? A few years ago, I had that same degree from a US college (accredited). I am a US citizen and had already worked for a company for 4 years and then quit and submitted 65 job applications to other companies. The 66th hired me.

Regarding:  my coworker here told me to go to a any school (Lewis univ since it is la sallian school) and to evaluate my transcript of record to a school. I don't know how to do it. 

 

Pick a technical school in your area which has a Masters program in Computer Science and call the admissions office.  Set up an appointment with the admissions office and ask them to evaluate your transcript because you want to pursue a masters degree.  That may give you an idea of where your skills are lacking.  The issue in the US especially with a BS in Computer Science is there are 100's of applicants for each job.

My brother in law is working for JP Morgan Chase making almost 6 figures, he's only been here for 3 years. Are you on job boards such as Indeed? Have a profile on Linkedin? He was working at Best Buy before a recruiter found him online. He only went to UP for 2 years before migrating here, never finished his degree. I suggest applying for jobs, have a good resume and portfolio.

My fiancé is Colombian and has a bachelors degree in Engineering, and a Masters in Business finance. For to work as an Engineer, she has to get her license validated. I called the board of engineers (they do the certifications at the state level) for the state we are planning to live in when we move after she’s approved.
