Ways to Find Jobs in USA

Ideas to find  jobs in USA

Initially, When I was researching I came to know that there are tons of articles available online telling false ways to get a job in USA. I don’t think it’s a good idea to marry a USA citizen just to get citizenship or to find a Job in USA. This sole purpose can be fulfilled in other ethical ways.

So, I decided to tell you all the proper way to get a Job in USA when you are not a citizen of USA. In some cases, not even living in USA.


Before you start to hunt a job for you there are 2 basic requirements that can help you to get hired easily in USA.

  1. Qualification

On literal note, Thousands of people apply for the job in USA but too many of them don’t get the job because of lack of qualification and specialization in the field they are applying.

When you are a non-citizen of USA and applying for the job in USA of should be highly qualified and specialized in your field as compare to citizen applicants. If this main thing is missing there is a higher chance of losing the seat.

  1. Work Permit

If you are not a citizen of US, You need to get a Employment Authorization Document (EAD) for being an eligible candidate. This is also called as work permit. Once you get this work permit next requirement is visa.

There are multiple visas available including citizenship, work visa, student visa. If you are searching about visa I would recommend you following link which may help you a lot regarding visas.

Ways to find Job in USA

Now that you have both the things to find a job in USA, there are multiple resources to find a perfect one for you:

This is the most common channel that people use to find a job in USA. If you are living there you can go through different newspapers , magazines and all other offline  channels. See job listing recently given, Contact them and follow the procedure accordingly.

I recommend to use state level newspaper instead to national newspaper, this way you will bw able to find a job within the city you are living.

This is the way most of the people don’t use these days, because they don’t believe to have a third person between employer and employee. But believe me the recruiter companies still have the best job opportunities. People in USA still use this process to find a fit job. You can go to recruiter and company will find you a Job according to your requirements. Be careful of the frauds, though.
