Applying for jobs in the USA
Mahone posted a topic in General DiscussionIt's getting closer to the date when my wife and myself will be moving to the states. As a result, I've started looking at IT related jobs in Florida just to get a general feel of pay scales and availability in the individual areas. I do have one question from the results I've seen though. Many jobs that I feel would be ideal for me as I meet all the other requirements, append the clause of "U.S. citizens only" to the job description and requirements meaning I'm not eligible to apply as I'll only be a legal resident, at least for the first three years that I'll be living in the states. When this is stated on the job description, is it to be taken at face value, or are they using the wrong terminology and really mean you have to be able to legally work in the US whether a US citizen or legal resident? I admit I do feel a little bit disadvantaged as a result of this clause, so many jobs I've seen include it and makes me wonder how easy it'll be for me to find employment once we move. Thanks
