Hi

I am due to complete my MA in Literature in Sep and will be graduating mid Dec 2009. I am desperate to get over to the US and would love to do my PhD there although I've heard its really hard to do. Failing that i would be looking for a job but am unsure how to go about it as I currently work for the HMRC in customer service and will have an MA in Literature so am 'unskilled'. Can anyone advise me how I can best go about moving to the US?
