Moving to Miami, United States of America

The infamous Miami Beach strip, located on a barrier island between the Bay of Biscayne and the Atlantic Ocean, stretches way down the south east coast, has been a major attraction to people all around the world for years.

This has encouraged a great inflow of tourism to the city creating jobs and capital. However, figures of unemployment in the Southern state of Florida has been higher than expected of late, causing a cry out for new and exciting job creation programs to get underway.

Miami is a previous winner of “Americas Cleanest City” for its year-round clean air quality, cosmic green spaces, clean drinking water, well kept streets and city-wide recycling programs. They also have previously been awarded Americas Healthiest City. These reasons alone have encouraged foreign expats to move abroad and try find work in Miami.

Miami is also home to the largest number of international banks in America. This has opened up plenty of employment opportunities for people working in the finance sector.

Hi, I'm from Northern Ireland, and hoping to find out all the information I can about getting sponsorship to work in Boston.
I am ideally looking for marketing and events based roles, and would hugely appreciate any help people can send me with regards to companies hiring for such roles? How to apply for sponsorship? Or really, any tips or details about the entire process. Thanks!

Here is a link for all available hospitality/hotel jobs in America However if you plan on going to work in the US, you will need a working visa. Have you thought about this factor?

I'm looking for work as a Medical Secretary (or just a secretary) in America, perferably Chicago. However I'm from Ireland and don't really know how to approach possible employers about sponsorship. Does anyone know how to find out which companies are more likely to sponsor me for work visas?

Thanks. :)

Hi Regina,

When it comes to getting sponsorships from US companies, it is very much depending on the industry they are in. Your best bet is to research job vacancies and choose several companies to approach. You must explain to them why they should sponsor you, so be sure to really sell yourself to them and make them want you in particular. Sponsored employees all must prove what makes them better than someone who can fill the role in Chicago, or wherever it may be, otherwise they will hire local talent.

Also have you checked out the Secretary roles available in Chicago at the moment..... and

Hope this helps :)
