I'm from Perth but living in Melbourne and heading to states East Coast in March.

My parents are American so I already have Dual passports so VISA isn't a problem.

I work in sales and am well aware of a downturn in the states but heaps of jobs seem to be going on craigslist atm is the economy getting better and also if worse comes to worse and i just need any jobs like bartending or waiter is it hard to get these? I don't really don't care if I haev to do these jobs for a while I'm f**king over the boganism subculture and just general b*ll**** that Australia provides to me every day. It's a very overrated nation.

Peace.

You're only going to get a bum job if you're present on the ground. I wouldn't make the trip without $10k if I were young and $20 if older and needed a few more creature comforts. Craigslist is as good a place as any to suss out the employment market.

Yeah, stuff takes forever to happen in Australia! The "no worries" kind of attitude has its pros and cons. As for jobs, I think it really depends where you are in the US. There are of course a lot more people and places than in Australia. Some cities are doing ok and others aren't. Craiglist will tell you that - compare a few places and see which have more jobs available. Maybe wise to contact some potential employers before you move.
