Post study employment options

The USA has strict employment rules, however skilled workers are in demand in the right industries.

The first step is to apply for a Green Card (or United States Lawful Permanent Residency) which gives the holder the right to both settle in the USA as well as work in paid employment.

For the experience of working in the USA without settling there permanently, you can also apply for work visas on a temporary, seasonal or exchange worker basis.

This requires a Work Visa, as well as permit to work, called an Employment Authorisation Document (EAD).
