Do you want to work in the United States? There are several necessary steps you must take in order to get approval to work in the U.S. Be sure to confirm that you have the proper working papers before applying with OverseasJobs.com employers in the US. Your employer or sponsor must then submit a request for a working permit - only then can you apply for your visa.
We've listed below several types of temporary work visas for persons who want to work in the United States for a fixed period of time, and are not considered permanent or indefinite. Each of the below visas requires the prospective employer to first file a petition with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. An approved petition is required to apply for a work visa. More information, including a complete list of work visas and the steps necessary to submit your application for a visa, can be found at the U.S. Department of State's Travel.State.Gov website.
