Finding a job and or a sponsor has become increasingly difficult in recent years and is even more of a challenge from abroad. Networking is a way of life in US and it is imperative that you employ the most sophisticated methods of communicating your needs and desires to the masses in order to secure the position you want in the industry of your choice. Consult and be well in formed on the most efficient methods of working your network.

Only 55.000 H1 visas are granted per year worldwide and sponsorships are usually limited to specialized fields or executive level positions and are tiedious and expensive. Spouses of an H1 visa holder are accorded an H2 visa but are not allowed to work in the US.

Your CV is the first step in this process and your first impression on perspective sponsors and it is imperative that it is in written in correct English and in the American format.

Cover letter

Even more important than your CV is the "cover letter" that introduces the CV and should summarize your desired goal and credentials in less than 10 seconds in order to catch the eye of an American recruiter. Be concise and persuasive. Do your research and address your correspondences to the decision makers, manager or recruiter, be specific about your objectives, and never exceed one or two lines.

Mention your follow up plan to schedule an appointment by email or phone with the person in charge in the near future.
