Hi guys

I'm looking for some advice on how to Emigrate to Canada or the US.
I'm a mature UK student in Electrical/Electronic Engineering, I will finish my Beng Honors Degree in June 2015. But previous to this I worked on the overhead lines up and down the UK for over 8 years this ranged from 11kV pole lines TO 400kV transmission lines.
I will be 35 when i graduate will that be a problem and how would i go about getting a job
Kind Regards
Steve

I have the same problem in the UK being a US citizen. I have a university degree, and many, many years of experience in social services management, but cannot put this to use in the UK. Working entry level jobs in the field for a year so far. I can't get sponsored for gaining qualifications in the UK because (catch 22) I have a university degree, and only non degree holding employees can access the training. : (

My current location is India and I am looking for h1 sponsor. I have almost 8 years of work experience in Clinical SAS as statistical programmer. Wanted to know what could be the best way to find jobs/employers who offers sponsorship to international candidates ?

Married to an American who has been with me in the UK for ten years, I'm now the foreigner ('hey, I lurrvv your accent'!)

Hopefully, or should I say....I'm sure, things will change once I find work. Oh and did I mention that I can't work here because my British medical qualifications which took me 5 years to get, including 2 years postgrad, are not accepted in the US. From being a Professional person in the UK, I am now uncertified. That really hurts me a lot.

Well, keep up the good work and I'll keep looking for meaningful occupation.
I'm not looking forward to going through Tiffani's stages again, I'm a Kiwi living in Aus for past 23years, now "coming to America" on a DV. I'm a registered Nurse specialising in Mental Health, I've got to pass the General Nurse NCLEX 9 years after graduating. THAT should be fun. I'm hoping to work as a Psych tech while I get quals sorted out. I'm hoping

In our statistics, we can find economic, social, political, religious or intimate reasons. Regardless the reason or cause, we can express this phenomenon as the constitution of freedom for every man or woman.
In my own experience, I grew up in Europe, and even though I might keep my nostalgia for my “motherland”, I think that citizenship is a matter of choice, linked to our personal experiences, to our inner motivations. Citizenship should be the expression of identification to some ideas, fidelity, and vision to certain political space. We didn't control the place of our birth. We accepted it because we didn't have a choice. Citizenship shouldn't compulsive, on the contrary, it should be a social manifestation of voluntary association, expression and identification. In our current social perspective, that's an utopia. But who knows? May be the society of the future will be capable to envision a culture of “free movement” and “free cooperation” After living in Europe, and having lived in different European countries, I decided to come into the United States, because I think it is the most functional democracy in the world (Some people will find this statement, debatable), but that's my opinion.
In America, I've had days in which I've felt absolutely identified with its culture. Everything seems to fit perfectly. It seems I've lived in the United for a long time. Everything is logical and congruent. But some times, I don't feel the same way. For instance, I reject the death penalty. It is painful to observe how some Americans have little regard with human life. I reject its shallowness, anti intellectualism (Everything has to be funny), but on the other hand, I value its individualism, and optimism.
Generally speaking, I feel American, and I have my personal reasons why I obtained the American citizenship, I don't imagine living elsewhere. I reject some issues as I expressed above. However, in this imperfect and free society, I think that the American Society is the most functional around the world. There are days I miss my motherland, and I will keep this feeling during the rest of my life. I think is possible and compatible to love 2 nations.
In fact, I feel “world citizen”, because I feel identified with human problems and its challenges.
In conclusion, my experience in America has taught me to love and understand the variety of human life (cultures, languages, traditions). We have some link or relationship with our motherland, not doubt about it. But we can develop attitudes more humans, and cosmopolitans. We can learn to love our adopted country and the world as well. It is the modern way to express our freedom and universalism.
I'm liking where you are coming from. I have UK/european passport eligibility through my father, (English), I was born in New Zealand then emigrated to Australia and raised my children there, now my wife and I have qualified through the Diversity Visa program to move to the USA. World Citizen has a nice ring to it.

Hi there,
You say that your medical qualifications aren't valid in the US? How did you find that out and how on Earth are you coping with it?
I've got a PhD in Physics from South Africa, which also took the better part of 10 years to get. Hopefully that will be recognised in the US or I start from scratch again.
