As far as i know, you need a green card to live and work in the US. I have no idea where and how to get it.

Get a green card
Get a portfolio
Get an attitude ( searching for a job via e-mail is .. lame )

You either need a green immigrants card, or to have a valid passport issued by your country and a "work" visa applied to it (which would be granted based on an application to the US). Check with your country's emigration office or see if you can talk to the U.S. Embassy there.

The same could be said for actual US citizens.

What is the minimum yearly salary that you would accept?

Being a Christian (and showing it) would certainly help you in a state like Kansas, but even there things would ultimately boil down to economics (how little they could pay you).

As for actually getting here; a student visa is probably your best bet (if you can get one).

PS: How is the global economic crisis affecting India? I assume the number of incoming jobs (from first world nations) decreased?

@Senesence,

yes ofcourse dude you are right many of the US ppl itself are not getting job in US,but US is economically rich, so there is so many legal ways to earn money right dude ?... actually thats what i heard and read about US dude .....i don't know exactly :(


As for actually getting here; a student visa is probably your best bet (if you can get one).

dude and my friend ,i am not so rich to spend money for education in US ,because i am medium family and i don't want my parents to spend money for me as i am old enough dude .... :(


PS: How is the global economic crisis affecting India? I assume the number of incoming jobs (from first world nations) decreased?

I thought the term "dude" went out with the '90s? Or was it the '80s?

Anyhow, what you need to do is apply for a jobs with a multinational corporation. Companies that spring to mind are Microsoft, Oracle, and Google.

If you get a job offer, then you will need to apply for an H1B work visa at the US Embassy/Consulate in your area. I Googled for H1B and found this site (http://www.h1base.com/); maybe it will offer you some insight.

Technically/legally, foreign nationals need a visa to work in the US. However, as so many of us know, there are thousands (if not millions) of people in the US that find employment even though they are in the US illegally, or arrived using a visa that does not permit the person to work (eg. a tourist visa).

Anyhow, to summarize, yes it is possible for a non-US citizen to get a job in the US. But you will need to take the first step to acquire a job.

Sadly, almost all of those questions are specific to each company. What works for one company won't work for another. And yes, you could get a job with a MNC. You'll need to contact each one in turn to find out the process and requirements for each.

:confused: Have you not ever worked before in your life? You get a job by first finding something that interest you, then upon analyzing whether you think you have the skills to do the job, you decide on whether to apply for the job.

The company is not going to take the time to find you, nor waste time considering whether you belong in the s/w engineering group or the sanitation engineering group. You have to make the effort to contact the company to tell them where you would like to be considered for employment.
