Hi and sorry if this question has been asked before.

Is there such a thing as a published list of a shortage of skills that the US Govt say are needed in the country?

I'm based in the UK and work in the media with a background in radio and tv and would like to know if I can tailor my skills to suit the requirements?

Thanks

Phil

You conflate US immigration with that of other popular English-speaking destinations. Like most things American, it's pretty unique.

No, there isn't. There is a visa category for those with specialized, highly-sought after skills, but those visas are employer-sponsored (think computer chip engineer working for Intel). The US doesn't otherwise keep a list of skills shortages - we typically don't have a shortage of any skill set. Working in media certainly wouldn't be one of them.

Pity. I've been wondering the same thing. I'm 18 and am not set on any career yet. I was wondering what would be my best bet of going to the us after I've qualified. The shortage list would be useful ;)

Hi Phil - have you had a chance to look at the other postings here. There was one in March from another UK guy going out to the US for media work. I can't remember the exact details, but I think he had a media visa, is that something you've looked into. Here's some info Foreign Media, Press and Radio

I can't remember his name, but it may be worth having a quick look through the posts to see that thread as he may have some more specific info for you.

Cheers
Gillian
