    Well long shot as mainly UK based site.

    I want to do a stint in USA but see that you need to have a sponsorship from company to get in on temp visa and they do not allow freelance work. Plan was try and get visa, do UK work while out there and pay what ever local taxes were required!

    That plan is out of window now!

    So either looking from April of next year or late next year or 2011 time.

    Anyone know where might be a good place to look.

    Am going to email some agencies out there etc...

    Also to add work in Miami or San Fran area ideally.
     
  4. LA would be the best place to look for that sort of thing.. I'll see if I can get you a list of contacts I have for USA :)

    Well one week late but hope you have been more successful by now? I actually would love to work and live in England, I am told that getting a visa and work permit might be difficult. Like for you to work in the States, an employer who sponcers you would have to really believe that you would fit the job over some American also applying. It would be much the same for me to work in the UK I am sure.

    But Im actually going to try and enroll in a university there, hopefully for some time next year. More about that though in another post!:)
     
  12. I hope that your applications for UK Universities goes well Rhonda :)
