A High-Pitched Cry of Desperation
« on: September 19, 2007, 04:21 PM NHFT »

So, here I am, an Israeli. Under US law, I can’t immigrate before I find a job in America, and, obviously, if I want to live in America, I need a job there anyway. I have experience in working PC tech support (I did so as a civilian and for the IDF) and I have experience as working as a translator and a writer.  Aside from that, I can also take any form of unqualified labor ( I work as a rent-a-cop at an Israeli security company atm, and I’ve worked in a production line in a factory before, but of course those are just temp jobs and are not mentioned in my CV, it’d be bloated as hell if I mentioned any temporary jobs I had). And I know that there’s at least some NH employers reading this.

I’m ready to work at any kind of wages – even the US minimum wage is significantly higher then the minimum wage in Israel, and if I get a job as a translator, writer, editor or tech support fellow, I get likely at least half a buck more then that.

I seriously dislike the political culture of the country I live in, and for too long, have felt powerless to change it.

I’m just one of those ‘honest, hard-working immigrants that’d work for cheap’. I just don’t know how all of those guys get American jobs, I don’t even know were to start. So, yes, if there’s an American with a business reading this – you can get a person who will happily work for cheap, I will get a US job. Even if you don’t yourself own a business or work in HR, maybe you know someone who can help me out?

P.S. I am a member of the Free State Project and the 1st 1000. Other FSP members recommended I should post here.

Thanks. I suspect heavily I'm going to need it.

What about posting all of that info on monster.com?  It seems like that might help too.

Rainey, I tried Monster.com and a dozen different sites of the same form in the past, it didn't seem to have helped so far - I'm still in Israel. I'm going for the old-fasihoned 'social networks' angle - maybe some fellow libertarian will help me out. :(

Have you considered coming here to start as a student? This local private university has a large and welcoming international population http://www.snhu.edu/

I have considered it. However, tuition costs in SNHU per year are [hold your seat] ten times what I pay in Israel, and would swallow up my entire family's savings in one year exactly. So it's a job I'm after.

Best of luck getting out of Israel.  I spent six months studying in Jerusalem at Hebrew U, and got quite a whiff of that political culture (especially getting to watch the collapse of Shinui).

What you need is called an H1B visa.  It's really hard to get a work-sponsored visa in the U.S. unless you are a technical person.  I would suggest using the website http://www.dice.com ; it's an IT-based jobs website and allows you to search for job openings by location.  Maybe you can use your combination of technical and multilingual background to get a job as a technical translator.

I also suggest not limiting yourself to looking for jobs in New Hampshire; include the greater Boston area and southern Maine in your search.  If you get a job in Massachusetts, you'll be stuck paying state income tax, but it's sure better than nothing.

Another option is to approach high-end hotels.  They are always hiring and would value someone who is multilingual and might possibly sponsor you, if you have a skillset that's otherwise hard to find.

Good luck!

Yup.  That's because universities in Israel are very heavily tax-subsidized versus universities (even public universities) in the US.

I think Student Visas have some regulations on that. Either way, I can't imagine studying AND earning $20,000 year for the tuition AND living expenses.

Is it possible to speak with a university counselor about exchange programs?  scholarships for foreign nationals?

I knew two German guys who had student visas while going to a 2-year trade school (much cheaper).

Are there any sanctuary cities for illegals in NH? 

Perhaps legal status in Canada as an intermediate step?  (it's 5 hours away)

Marriage?    (maybe that is too drastic)

ETA:

Try contacting an au pair agency.  If you're male, finding a family will be more difficult... but not impossible.
