Important: This information guide explains the process of applying for a job in the United States. It does not contain U.S. Work Visa and Green Card information or application instructions.
Jobs are available in a number of different avenues such as newspapers, internet, employment centers, through headhunters, job banks, networking, and
job fairs. The process of obtaining a job in the United States is never easy, and it often involves much preparation and hard work. Job applicants are encouraged to take a thorough inventory of their strengths and weaknesses. Do you know what your potential is?
A proven strategy to help to prepare for job opportunities is to engage in self-analysis and determine what you can contribute to an organization as well as areas which you can improve on. Once you know what you can offer to an organization, it is time to write a cover letter and CV or resume. When you are called for interviews, you need to know how to present yourself and what questions to expect. Many jobs are lost because individuals are not prepared for the job interview.
