In recent years, America especially needs highly qualified specialists. Recently, Donald Trump announced the implementation of a new RAISE reform, which will reduce the influx of low-skilled labor into the country to a minimum. In particular, the winners of the “Green Card” will be selected on a competitive basis: preference is given to specialists with professional experience and knowledge of English. Of the 1.1 million immigrants who came to the country in 2016, only 7% of those immigrants.
But even if you want to get a job without unique skills – there are chances. American worksites filled with vacancies in the field of service and manual labor. According to construction specialties alone, 40,000 – 60,000 vacancies appear on the day. Another issue – in wages, which for such workers is quite low.
The US labor market – one of the most competitive in the world. The unemployment rate is at the level of 4-4.5%. The most reliable way to find work in the country is through friends, friends, relatives who already live in the States. They are aware of the features of the move and the position of the market in a particular state. But if there are none, use the following methods:
Contractor – work under the contract, you are engaged in a calculation of the taxes, you do not have bonuses like insurance or paid holidays.
Employee – you’re in heaven. Medical insurance, which applies to family members, but it depends on how much you are loved by the employe.
Where is the best place to look for a job?
There are sites for search engines, but it’s just a nightmare, to find there something unreal!
monster.com / indeed.com / glassdoor.com / career.com
And HR, as a rule, responds extremely reluctantly through these sites.
There are agencies, they have more weight in the eyes of HR. I advise you to look for them yourself, each state has its own good employment Agencies
Well consider all options and opportunities!

Contacting the company directly
A good way to find a job in the US is to send a resume in English to one of the major local corporations. For example, Ford Motor, Hewlett-Packard, Chevron, Procter & Gamble, JP Morgan Chase & Co.
We recommend paying attention to large companies because they constantly need specialists, and in their state, there are already foreign workers. So they have the knowledge and experience in the field of hiring foreigners.
Do not neglect the periodicals to find a job. Pay attention to the Russian-language newspapers: “Russian market”, “Courier”, “Jewish world”, “AIF. America “, as well as those that are published by local communities.

Work illegally for cash

Yes, this is also possible, and in the future, when the issue with your legalization in the country will be resolved, this will be a big plus.
