hey everyone,

I really have no idea if i'm posting the right thing, on the right area?! but i saw this forum on google and ppl asking about sponserships...
well, i'm a student living in the UK..and i'm planning to apply for a visa to work in the US and its so confusing. I am not eligable for the green card lottery as i'm english? :S so having an employer sponsering you is my best option....except i am not clueless when it comes to knowing what companies/employers are willing to sponser? and to even go about doing it. This probably seems really dumb and ive never been signed to a forum before so please be nice whoever read this..
my ideal work would be something in fashion, styling or makeup.
Ive read lots into H-1B visas...but everythings seems so complex, i'm pretty much just wondering if theres anyone out there reading this who can break it down for me, or help me out on some advice!
thankyou to anyone who reads this!

my friend from the UK hooked up with likeminded people for his US immigration aspirations on www.visajourney.com... try that. You have to be very good at something (i.e. be a specialist) to qulify for employer sponsorship, they have to prove immigration officials that there is no U.S. citizen can do that job as good as you, and even then it can take a long time and a lot of money to get the workpermit. But if you start working for a US company in the UK and do a good job, you never know... good luck.

...or try Canada.

I second Canada. After having been there, I can't say the two countries are all that much different and you would probably enjoy the government benefits and structure in Canada better because it is more comparable to the UK. If you live near the border, you can just swing on by the US whenever for a visit. It is possible to go to Canada without employer sponsorship. You just need some marketable skills and some money in the bank.
