March 19, 2013 by My Alternate Life 2 Comments Finding your dream job isn’t always easy.
If you’re just looking to move position, the main focus of your research should be on individual firms. With any luck, your research will help you secure a position with a company but don’t just jump in when they offer the job, make sure you understand completely the pay and benefits, the working hours, vacation leave and what exactly your role will involve.
If you’re totally new to an industry, your research needs to start on a more general level.
Selling yourself is knowing your story, concisely and clearly packaging your skills and experiences to meet a company's need.
There are three major sections to job hunting: the quest, the presentation and the interview.
The actual search for a job might be the most difficult part because it's the aspect of the job hunt most out of your control. If you are having difficulty learning of the right opportunities, you should consider using a recruiter.
Your initial communication, your chance to make a first impression, is almost always communicated through writing. Expect your resume to be looked at for about ten seconds, just long enough to find a reason to dismiss it. In your cover letter, don't lie about accomplishments, especially education which tends to be looked at more harshly. When the interview is being scheduled, you have the right to ask who will be in that meeting, and what the focus of the questions will be.
As you engage in a discussion at your interview, keep your eyes open for body language, yours and theirs. The most important thing you can do in the interview is to emphasize what you alone can offer this company.
Obviously one of your biggest tasks when you get to the America will be to find a job in the USA. First of all, before you can start work, you need to have your Social Security Number (SSN). Try and match your job hunt to the area you live in, or be prepared to change the area to find suitable work. These are jobs like warehouse work, retail, fast food, casual labor, security guards and so on. These types of job normally require that you have some sort of skill that has taken training or experience to acquire.
I read that for example italian embassy will accept it in italian (?) but i assume this is not the case in us? If we have a business in our country before going into a US, and do not want to sell this business after going to the U.S., but want to continue this business as a green card holder, are we allowed to do so?
Without a SSN, I could not get a credit card to start building history and I could not get a driver’s license, could not rent an apartment. The drivers license typically takes everything you know about PLUS proof of an address (apartment lease, utility bill and so on).
Would have been safer if I had insisted to apply directly with the SSA after entering, though.

As with all social networking, when it comes to job searching there are some big ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’. Do not tweet between 12 am and 5 am on a weekday unless you are in another time zone, or people know you are stuck somewhere. There are no hard and fast rules about what to tweet; you need to find your own ground, but remember, your future employer may (or may not) be reading your tweets.

Many people confuse the idea of “acceptance” with the idea of giving up instead of fighting their situation.
I really noticed this phenomenon of denying, or at least misnaming, feelings when I talked with people who have been hard hit by the economy.
When I named their feelings as grief, the light bulb came on and they were able to experience some healing as they pinpointed their actual emotions and mourned their losses.
So, it’s important to be very clear about what you are truly feeling when facing adversity.

And with a more difficult jobs market, it’s a good idea to consider yourself as a business, even if you are looking for a staff position in a particular company or industry. Check out their website to see exactly what they do and who is most likely to be the relevant contact for the work you want to do. You don’t want any nasty surprises when you start – you also don’t want a job that will completely take over your life if you have a passion with your 9-to-5 that you might pursue as your own business in the future.
With so much information freely available online these days, there really is no excuse for not being up to speed.
However, you can make success much more likely just by digging that little bit deeper than others and making sure you’re well informed to give you that all-important edge.
Typical places to learn about openings and opportunities include major newspaper want ads, but even more these days computer searches.
This information gives you a chance to visualize yourself successfully answering the questions.
As part of your DV process you probably selected the option to have an SSN assigned for you. Your savings will dwindle very quickly (faster than you would believe possible), so it is good to get a job – any job.
There is no point in moving to an area that just had the largest factory in town close down. Jobs like this would normally be easy to obtain, but the salary available will be fairly low.
Types of work include construction trades (like plumbing, electricians), basic business skills (basic IT, sales, business admin functions) and so on.
One excellent site I have used is Glassdoor – which provides salary ranges, reviews of the companies, information of what to expect in the hiring process and so on. It was not crowded at all and I got first at the security lines (there were no special ones for Immigrants). Which means still not being able to get a credit card and a driver’s license… Am I missing anything here, or is this how they expect people to just sit not doing anything for at least 5 weeks after they enter the country? I say the latter because if you are used to things being done efficiently the USA is about to teach you a lesson in patience. You don’t know the ways things are done and everything is a little different than you are used to. Guess right now, being out of US, all I can do is hope to get it in the mail, get the number over phone with family at the address and open the bank account and credit card online. Twitter on its own is unlikely to find you a job: you may see jobs advertised (and you’ll need to respond quickly if you do), but it should be used as the means to finding a job, and your personal marketing tool. When you walk into a recruiter’s office for an interview or meet them at a networking event there can be that moment when the recruiter instantly recognises you. Even though you are looking for a job, don’t keep tweeting several times a day that you are looking for a job, as aside from appearing desperate (it is okay – we know you are), it is also dull, boring and unattractive.
Don’t use swear words or text speak and don’t tweet about things you don’t want your mother to read (my mum is following me on Twitter – that keeps me in check!) The best thing to do is to follow others and watch their lead, or ‘lurk’, before stepping out into the big wide twitterstream. It is imperative that you don’t tweet things that could backfire on your job search and at all times you tweet like the professional person that you are. She has been working in publishing for 30 years, in all aspects of the industry from editorial through to sales, academic to trade and conglomerates to tiny independents and has a huge understanding of the shifts in skills the industry needs as it moves to digital.
Just go to Account Settings to change your username, and Profile Settings to change your profile name. So, one thing I want to make clear about acceptance is that you don’t have to like what has happened to you. We’ll talk more about this concept in future posts, but let’s set a ground rule now that just because you accept something doesn’t necessarily mean that you like it. Learning to accept, rather than deny, the feelings that accompany stress, loss, and trauma.
Remember that we all share a common humanity and, thus, we all experience similar emotions. We’re accustomed to having a lot of control in our lives and acceptance often means letting go of some of that control. It is a protective measure that kicks in when we are stressed and sometimes we need that extra bit of time denial affords us to get ready to adjust to adversity.

You need to research your industry, the best people to get in touch with, potential employers, including their finances through a service like Duedil, both before you contact them and then if invited to interview.


Also, do a full webcheck to find out what lies beneath the surface and also what other people are saying about them. Read relevant blogs and news sites and join Twitter to follow the relevant people in your target industry – don’t be frightened to get involved in the debate once you feel you have something to contribute or even if you want to ask a couple of questions.
Instead, tailor your letter for the particular company by mentioning something you've learned about them.
Let the interviewer know how you can see yourself in a specific way contributing to the company.
Most construction in the US is not brick construction – so your skills may not be as useful. Jobs like this are often found through contacts, so developing a network of contacts is a crucial step. Gave the office the sealed envelope and passport, and in 5 minutes I had the endorsement stamp on the page next to the DV-1 visa, which makes for a 1 year temporary green card.
When I asked to be able to apply for a SSN myself, they said that is done through Dep of Homeland and problems could arise because of a duplicate application, so they advised to wait 3 weeks. The fastest way is to not let USCIS apply and go to the ssa after being in the country a few days. Keep calm, be persistent and always ask the government staff to help you out because you are new in the country blah blah blah.
Do this with the person who has advertised the job – make them feel like they know you, because you have responded to a tweet, or interacted with them. Check out who they are retweeting or recommending for a #ff (Follow Friday) – very often it is their ‘own’ people. Creating an account will allow you to upload you resume, search for jobs and will allow employers to contact you.
But the letting go also brings freedom and is the first step in your ability to bounce back in life. Don’t stop there though – if you are offered a position, a little bit more research could allow you to make a more confident decision. Maintain eye contact and try to be aware how the interviewer is physically reacting to your answers.
So – a few days after you arrive in the USA, find the local SSA office (you can check that here ) and go in. You may have been a supervisor in your home country, but higher responsibility jobs require local knowledge. If you have a skill or a trade, you may find that trade is subject to licensing or insurance requirements that will take time to obtain. It helps to research what sort of company might require your skills within the area you choose to live, and in fact you may well choose the area based on the availability of work in your industry. If you want to work in editorial, for example, see how many book publishing editors you can find on twitter, not so much for you to tweet ‘give us a job’ to them, but so you can get an insight to their job and the work they do. If you hear about an opening at a particular company use your network to see if anyone can help you either learn more about the company, or the kind of work they do, or to actually refer you.
So for example, someone supervising staff in the USA needs to know some HR rules, what is an acceptable way to address subordinates and so on. So – you may need to obtain casual work until you can improve your opportunities later.
They will expect a more formal approach, probably fill in an application form, provide references and so on. Suzanne also provides business to business consultancy to those who are setting up publishing houses or selling services to publishers. The interview to hire process for these jobs can be fast (next day or within days is not uncommon).
A new immigrant who expects to find this sort of work would be well advised to carry from the home country some letters of recommendation and history from former employers. If you follow someone and they don’t know you and your biography is blank they are unlikely to follow you back. You will need to take some ID (passport, and birth certificate is all you need for a DV winner). Employers will not really expect to see or check references, but once you have the job you are expected to perform well in order to keep your job. If, for example, your house is going into foreclosure, you might immediately list stress, worry, anxiety.
