      Wanting to move and work in America :-)

      Hi, my name is Becky and i am 22 years old from the UK. One of my goals in life is to work and live in America, which as i am sure you all know is very difficult.
      I only have basic GCSE's from school apart from an A1 Assessor award, my main background is administration,HR, accounts, SLA (Site Learning Administrator).
      I have a keen interest in Mental Health and have been working for a company of that nature, however i feel there are bigger and better things out there for me!!!
      I know what i want, just stuck on how i get there. Any advice, support or knowledge would be much appreciated

      Many Thanks

      Becky

      Lots of young people wanting to move to the US at the moment. I think it's a great country and seems to be pulling itself out of recession too!
      Can't really advise you but there are a few other like minded members on the forum that may be able to help.
      Good luck with your plans.

      Hi Becky,

      From what you have said I would see it as a long term plan. The US is very degree driven so if I was you I would focus on getting yourself back into education and get a degree, GCSE's etc mean nothing in the states! Even with a degree at the moment the only people who get visa's have very specialised high in demand jobs, a company has to be able to prove that there is no one in the states to do that job.... not easy and very costly as you can imagine! Also there is a high rate of unemployment :(

      Also think about why you want to move to the states?? If it's for a 'better life' you are probably kidding yourself. Maybe look into other areas of Europe where you don't need a visa....
