First of all, i would like to say hi to you all, and especially hi to the webmaster(s) for a great job of this site - very educational! i have been on a few times but never actually registered!

Anyway, a bit about me - im 22 Years old born, bread and still live in Port Glasgow, Scotland, currenlty doing MCSE 2003 and on my first course (XP OS). I have BSc Computer & Network Support. Im working for a software company at the moment doing all the IT Support including Networking , desktop Support, VOip etc and have been here for 3 1/4 years.

I really want to move to the US to gain work, but seriously dont know where to start, i know im a long long way off it at the moment, but was wondering if anyone knows or knows someone who has been in a similar situation. If and when i get a VISA what does general IT Techie jobs get paid (average)? and what qualifications do they look for. I have no prefered state to be honest, i would just love the opp to work in the US and gain some personal experience.

Thanks in advance

    You will need to be hired under the visa-sponsor criteria. Your wages are as competitive as any other US citizen, the only requirement is that you must work for the company 2-3 years or whatever is specified.
    What next?

    My old roomate from college was from the UAE and majored in MIS and he know works for Progressive in Cleveland, OH. They seem to be a good company to work. They are good about sponsoring.
