What are my options for immigration to the United States?

I’m a Canadian graduate and I am seeking to start a career in the United States. I have been studying the different options in terms of visas for several years now, and my search seems to be leading me to a dead-end so far. From my understanding, H1-B visas are almost impossible to get (at least not unless one can find an employer that is willing to wait till October 2008), and there is no TN-1 visa matching my qualifications, given that I am no “management consultant”. Furthermore, I have no intention of getting married at the present time. In terms of my qualifications, I have a bachelors degree (bachelor of Commerce in Management) and I speak 3 languages fluently (English, French, and Spanish). Although I am at the entry-level stage, my resume is quite interesting and I would have no troubles finding a job. I just need to know whether or how the immigration process can be made possible. I’m seeking serious answers only, please. By the way, I have no intention of doing anything illegal... and I am familiar with all the aspects of the H1-B, BUT... it's impossible to get until October 2008. It's funny that you all mention Mexico, because I'm actually living in Mexico right now.. LEGALLY of course.. WIth my qualifications, it's been real easy to get a working visa here.. but I just don't understand how come I can't get one in the United States.. or even how come there are so many Mexicans that are in the US *LEGALLY* and I can't even do it...

Don't even worry about it. Just do what the mexicans are doing. Come here anyway without a visa or passport and steal some body's identity, get a job and when they pass the amnesty bill you'll be a legal citizen free of crimes you have committed in the process of being here.

H1B is the best way to go. If you have a good resume, you will find employers willing to sponsor you for it. If the quota has not been reached for the year in which you are applying, you can still get it. There is a quota/ certain # of people from each field of work that can receive H1B every year. Start by finding a... More

Send your resume to American companies. If you can find a good employer, they can sponsor you.

The only thing I can think of is going back to school and getting another degree from a US college (you wouldn't have to stay for an entire 4 years since you already hold an undergrad degree...it might only take 1 year) (Or you can get a Master's degree). All non-US students who get degrees from the US can apply for... More
