      Young professional couple looking to relocate to California. Advice needed.

      Hi,

      Great site by the way!

      Myself and girlfriend have just started to think about moving to the US. In particular San Fran/LA area. Problem is we don't know where to start and reading on the internet is just a mind boggle.

      I'm relatively young (33) and my girlfriend is 26. We both have professional careers. I'm a design director for a leading UK design agency and my girlfriend is a UX architect (online/website stategy) California is the leading place for digital and I'm pretty sure branding is up there too.

      Does anyone have any advice on how we approach the move? Would it be best to find a job first/get sponsored? Or just go? What type of visas or processes are available/the best approach? I would love to get some advice off someone who has done the same.

      any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance

      Martin.

      Are your fields in tight demand? Poke around at a job board to start to get a feel.

      If you haven't got kids pick an area you are interested in and book flights on fly drive basis, that way have return ticket ad car,plus with visa for 6 months and car for a week, then buy cheap car for duration, then rent small apartment until get work.myself I'm going to go on us eBay and buy a camper van (get nice one for 1000)as where I want to go Santa Monica theres couple trailer parks with toilet and wash facilities, so ill do that until I get sorted out there, hope this helps, anything else I'm pretty clued up on travelling
