Hunting for a U.S. job in 2018 requires a different strategy than used in 2005. It is time to adopt new tactics. Here are ten hacks you need to know. If you are not working at a job right now, you can announce your job-hunting status on your LinkedIn profile. Do not be too general that no-one knows what you do for a living. Be specific such as “Recruiter/HR Manager Looking for a New Challenge.” Let “headhunters” know you are in the market available for work. When filling out an online application, use your target salary when asked to plug in past salary figures. If your current target salary is $50,000, use that figure in every past salary field. In an open comment box, let them know “all salaries shown on this application represent my current salary target.” USAFIS will assist you in the application process for immigration to the United States. It is a great place to live and work.
If a job recruiter asks how much you are earning, answer, “In this job search I’m focusing on jobs in the $50K range.” If you see a “blind” job advertisement that doesn’t include the company name, look for language that may identify the employer. Brand yourself for the U.S. job you are seeking. The title you give yourself along with the summary to introduce yourself is the first thing the recruiter will see about you. Conduct research to set your salary target with the job. Do not be afraid to talk money with the employer. Stay calm and send a follow-up letter. There are many great opportunities awaiting you in America. Contact USAFIS for information on the U.S. immigration process.
