Movin to the US to work. Skilled mechanic lookin for company to sponsor work visa?
Hey everybody. Im a 25 year old guy lookin to move to the United States more specifically the south. Does anybody know of a company that runs equipment that has mechanics that is willing to sponsor a guy for the work visa? A bit of my history: Im dual ticketed so im journeyman automotive and heavy duty. Ive been pullin wrenchs for about 9 years already and got my red seals which in canada recognizes that you know your stuff and are able to work in any province in canada. Ive also got all my Commercial Vehicle Inspection licensing. Ive worked on everything from engine powered welders (mainly diesel powered) to every kind of car, some more then others, every kind of truck from 1/2 tons upward, ive touched on most offroad equipment but more so dozers, graders, and scrapers. But ive done skidders, pavers, reclaimers, wheel loaders, track loaders, etc... Im workin right now in on-road where most my experience has been kenworths with both cummins and cat engines but ive worked on macks and a couple others as well as trailers of all sizes. So if anybody knows of a companyor can suggest some that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
