Not sure what it is you are able to do. More information would help. We do have a high unemployment rate at this time. Chances are it is not the best time to be looking for a job. At the same time it does depend what it is you are educated in, trained in, or are into. Also do you have a right to work in the United States?

Nor did you answer the question about your right to work here. You need to research this and be aware that we are in the midst of a recession, just like you are. Your nearest American consulate or embassy should be able to get you started, but you didn't pick a very good year to try this.

There's not a lot of jobs right now. Even the guys that stand in front of Home Depot at 6am looking to dig ditches for $10/hr are leaving the state.

Yes you have to have the right to work here in the states. That is unless you plan on working in a sweat shop, picking strawberries, hanging out in front of the local Home Depot begging people to give you a job. Then again maybe you are good at holding a sign. Many of our people hold signs that say "will work for food." I unfortunatly don't have a sign that tells people that. But then I do work for food 5 days a week. I also work for housing, transportation, my six kids, my wife, my cars, and other toys that I have. I am also certain that many of those people with signs don't work at all. As far as I can tell they are not very truthfull about the willingness to work for food. I even asked one man what skills he had that he used to work for food.

You need papers, green card, something that allows you to work here.

I want a change as well. I was hoping to sell a movies script and make so much money that I would be able to use my toys more often.

Well you can't just move there with or without a job, there's this matter of securing a work visa, which is extremely difficult to get even in good economic times. Why do you think the U.S. would give a work visa to a foreign national when unemployment in California is already surging past 11% of the population? Even California's illegal immigrants are going back to Mexico in search of jobs.
As a member of the EU, it seems to me you have an enviable assortment of sunny exotic places that you could relocate to with minimal red tape. Why not try the French Riviera, the Costa del Sol or the Algarve? Even Australia and NZ would be easier to get into for you than California.

What skills, training, or experience do you have. It's impossible to tell you if you can get a job here without even this basic info.
