Hi,

I am planning to take some time out from my university studies next September (2013) and would like to move to Colorado (Denver/Springs).

I'm from Ireland and I don't have much experience working apart from teaching music and childminding. Would it be hard for me to find a job, even part time? I would also like to train to become a teacher while there. Is that possible for an Irish person or do I have to be a qualified teacher before I arrive?

Any help would be great! Thank you!

If you plan on teaching in a public school, than you must have a degree and license first. If you get a job giving music lessons, then you don't

You need a specific type of visa in order to hold a job in the United States as foreign resident. If you are going to school, then you can work part time on a student visa.

You could get a job working with children at a daycare center, but you might encounter trouble with a background check, as you are from outside the country and that makes the background check harder.

One thing you might want to look at if you are 18-30 years old is to see if the USA has a working holiday agreement with Ireland. That will enable you to stay and work in the USA for up to a year.

If I recall there are also some visas available for Au pairs to come over and work in the USA for a year or two.

Anything beyond a tourist visit, whether going to school or working, you will need to have a visa.

I would recommend looking at BUNAC. They are reputable and have been running visa programs for 50 years.

"Moving to Colorado". That sounds familiar somehow.
