So you held a license internationally?

New Jersey Licensure & Credentials - Teachers

Non-Citizen Standard - A five-year certificate issued to an individual who has met all requirements for state certification, but is not a US citizen. This certificate can be renewed by showing progress toward US citizenship. Copies of official documentation from the INS would be required for an additional renewal.

Sorry. You chose the wrong time. Teachers are being laid off in NJ. Not hired. Cuts in education.

Agreed.
When you consider the thousands of teachers who have either been laid off or not replaced upon retirement, this is NOT a good time to attempt to enter the teaching profession in NJ.

What profession is good to enter now? Engineering? Medicine? Every industry is cutting back.

Manufacturing has already begun to pick up considerably in the US, thus providing a good indicator that hiring in fields such as engineering will be improving in the near future. Once more people are back to work in the next year or so, more folks will be able to afford medical care, thus improving job prospects in health care.

On the other hand, the long-term situation vis-a-vis NJ municipal budgets and tax structures makes it unlikely that employment will improve for teachers in the near future. And, when districts do begin to rehire, they will be likely to favor those with whom they are familiar--assuming that those same teachers are still seeking employment as teachers.
