Moving to New York, United States of America

new yorkAlso referred to many as the “Big Apple”, New York City in many people’s eyes is seen as the capital of the world. “The City that Never Sleeps” is packed with entertainment, excitement and career prospects that would surely tempt anybody to move here. Many places around New York City can be found with American families who have descended from across the pond centuries ago, leaving their heritage in New York, making so many New Yorkers extremely family orientated.

New York is a busy city always on the go. It is a fast paced metropolitan area, where the people are always in a hurry. Moving to New York City may very well take time to getting used to. The cost of living in New York is high, everybody knows that. But you really do get what you pay for here, as most accommodation is located in the centre of the city, surrounded by the never-ending lists of top class, funky restaurants, bars, cafes, theatres, museums, sports grounds, among other wonders that New York is filled with.

Of course, New York City hasn’t got its name for just having nice bars and fancy restaurants. New York City's five boroughs are home to some of the world's most recognizable, exquisite landmarks and attractions. From Times Square and Central Park to the Empire State Building and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the island of Manhattan is filled with more inspirational icons than any other city in the world, and that's to say nothing of the City's four other counties, each of which contains its own roster of must-see destinations.

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 http://bit.ly/HfCGbw However if you plan on going to work in the US, you will need a working visa. Have you thought about this factor?

Hey,

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..... http://bit.ly/GAOml8 and http://bit.ly/GCGQbJ.

Hope this helps :)
