To find work, was it easy or not?
June 21, 2007 2:23pm CST
I was relocated here in the US 2 yrs ago. I got married, meet lots of wonderful friends and fully adjusted to the environment. At first, paper documentation for legality was the main concern. It took me awhile to settle everything from adjusting status, getting licenses and permit to work. Right now, with my short-term experience at a native land, getting a job that I want is hard to find. I registered at some staffing agencies to get started but at some point my application is not fully recognized. Is it because there are lots of applicants than the job orders that they have? Just wonder if its the luck that I dont have to satisfy my working desire position or need to alter it just to get started. Sometimes its a frustration but I dont want to be pessimistic about it. Many had said to take your time and be patient but sometimes its hard to do it when you really want to be of use and apply what you know. How was your experience in finding your job? Is it worth that you dont get the job what you aspire for or is there contentment of better have any job than not having?

Hi angelroche!! Yes its too tough for a new comer to get a job..If you have any real experience in relevant industry..You will get a job easier.There are lot of jobs available lot of human resources are also available but most of them are unqualified thats the reason of unemployment..Hope you are in H1B..I am associated with a Consulting and staffing company for an Us consultancy..If you were a software professional or if you have any computer related skills i can help..Hope you will get a job sooner..Good Luck!!

The job I'm adhering to is more on accounting. I have some base experience on that and thats the kind of job I am at ease working on and hopefully to land at. I'm already a permanent resident so I am eligible to most any employer. Computer skills are pretty basic like the microsoft excel, word, outlook and others...its all about the waiting process that's killing me. Wasting time is not essential right now. Thanks for the encouragement.
