Re: HELP! I want to work but don't know where to start
You should get your degree evaluated by an accredited degree evaluation company. I am a career counselor and many international job seekers have been able to apply their education and experience from their home country here in the U.S. Based on your degree evaluation results, you may or may not need to take a few extra courses at a local university. Still, that upfront investment would be minimal compared to all the doors that degree will open for you. Depending on what your degree is in, there may be separate licensure necessary including national, state, and county. I would be happy to help you further so feel free to PM me. I am currently giving away 28 hours of career services (1 hour free per person) as part of a Facebook project called Give 28 where you give 28 things in love/kindness in response to the tragedy at Sandy Hook.
