I am asking out of pure curiosity and I mean no snark by this: Why would a US company here in San Antonio go through the trouble of hiring someone from out of the country for an Accounting position? I would think its much cheaper for the company to just hire locally.

Also, why do you want to move to the US? Aside from the weather, Canada seems like a nice place to live IMO and it seems like a lot of trouble to find a job outside of your country of origin.

Not mainly due to cost of living but mainly the job market.

Yes it would be cheaper and would be a hassle and it would be easier to find local talent for Accounting. There isn't a good answer that I can give about that But for me, i want to work in US to get a different experience. Notonly that, the canadian dollar sucks right now and obv the weather. Canada is nice, sure But based on what i have researched, SA seems to be booming in terms of economy growth and job market and that is what is attracting me.

Yes, it is a lot of trouble and the only way for me to work in US via visa is through an employment offer. which is the biggest obstacle. I am trying really hard to find something tho so if anyone knows anyone in SA in accounting that can be of any help, i urge you to please assist me.

Thank you

Sorry to burst your bubble but no company in SA (and I am tempted to say the whole US) is going to pay a H1B visa for an entry level accountant, even senior unless you are an expat moving within the same company or have serious technical knowledge in SAP, Hyperion, Oracle and the likes. If the latter contact Accenture in SA.
