« on: January 12, 2023, 03:01:40 pm »
Dear all
For most of the times, I had run my own company (under 5 people), Now I have decided to immigrate to US, so my plan is to find a company that can send me a sponsor visa and work for them for a few years, then when I have enough knowledge of the US, start my own company again there, so here is my resume, please help me refine it so I can achieve my goal.

There are places in the US that I don't go to either, except when I have to travel through Chicago to get somewhere.  I am sure to do that during the day. 

We have a great places in the Southeast, Midwest, mountain states, and Southwest.  Even Elon Musk migrated to Texas from California.  Don't let the tabloid stories about the Pacific and some parts of our Northeast discourage you.

Have you read about the Louisiana purchase done under President Jefferson and his successor Monroe, 3rd and 5th Presidents, respectively?  Our MIdwest is very roughly that area.  I grew up in LA, it was much different then (late 1940's through 1960's), and have spent all of my professional life in the Midwest.  Freedom as we have in America has its drawbacks, but the advantages outweigh them.

Much of the US is as safe as anywhere else in the world, parts of it are not. It's a big and diverse country, nearly as large as the entirety of Europe and there are certainly parts of Europe that have a lot of crime. The news only shows you the bad things, you rarely hear about the hundreds of millions of people that go about their daily lives without anything bad happening.

Most American engineers on this forum are US natives, so they won't be able to give you any advice as to immigration. None of the advice that follows is unique to the USA. With that out of the way, your CV is missing a lot.

What is ASiDesigner -- a consultancy, a company you work for full-time, a hobby project? Where is it located? What work has ASiDesigner shipped? How many clients, how many projects, what did those clients think of the work delivered? Did you work in a team or on your own? None of that information is present. You also claim a bunch of skills like RTL, Keil, DSP, but provide no evidence of it. You will get an immediate rejection from all but the worst employers with this CV.

Companies usually look for evidence of the ability to drive a project to completion, but both of the featured projects on your CV look incomplete: Carbon says "in progress" and "Black thunder" appears to be a super complex board that is less than 5% populated. Does Black thunder even work? Who designed the schematic? The capitalization in project names should also be consistent.

Engineering hirers also typically look for the ability to produce solutions to a problem. What problems do Carbon and Black thunder solve? If Carbon is a directional relay controller, containing "11 different processors" inside it seems like excessive complexity: a disadvantage.

To get a job in the USA, your employer has to prove that you have unique skills that cannot be found already in the USA. The customs and immigration service is quite zealous about this, and they can, and will, revoke a visa and deport someone they don't think satisfies the uniqueness test even after that someone has moved to the US and started work.

In short, to get a job in the USA your employer has to prove that you have a unique combination of skills that nobody else has, and that they need to fulfill by hiring you.

I agree, it can be difficult.  What we did was post the job description in various professional journals.  Then after getting no responses, we hired the individual. That was over 20 years ago. I am not aware of any subsequent problems he has had.

The onus is on the employer and getting reliable advice is essential.  We used an immigration attorney.  It is a niche area of law.  What would make an employer go through that?  A well qualified applicant.  Just wanting to come is not enough.

Nothing against your nationality, as you originated from Iran, going to America is not one of the greatest choice, at least in the current geopolitical situation where Iranians can be seen as enemy combatant in those "land of free" as you desire.  >:D

That's how it should work. In practice I have worked at more than one company that posted fake job listings for jobs that were already filled by H1B visa holders in order to "prove" that they were looking for American citizens and couldn't find them. In reality all applications for those positions just went into the trash, they job was already filled, they weren't actually trying to hire anybody.

I work with several people from Iran and that has not been the case in my company. Maybe it's like that in some regions but not here. I work with several people formerly from Russia too and they don't seem to have problems. Most of us are able to separate a citizen from a particular country from the government of that country.

Yes. On the other hand, USCIS can also visit a place of employment and interview a visa holder. If they do not find the answers satisfactory, they can revoke the visa so that the worker has to leave the country. I have seen that happen.

I couldn't agree more.  Sure, there are ignoranti in every country, but no professional I know would have any bias based on your nationality.  The CEO of one of the places I worked was Iranian.  I have freely hired Iraqis, Iranians, and Egyptians.

If you have a reasonably compliant employer who hires a competent immigration attorney, you're unlikely to have that issue.  Most of the problems result from sloppy compliance (if you can even call it compliance in some cases) and poor planning.  You can say the same thing about taxes--the IRS can audit you, visit you and then refer you for prosecution.  The question is how badly do you have to screw up for that to happen--and the answer is 'pretty badly'.  It still happens, though. 
A 3.5 digit 4.5 digit 5 digit 5.5 digit 6.5 digit 7.5 digit DMM is good enough for most people.

Seems OP has not done his due diligence and is not familiar with the process. This makes him an easy target for all sort of immigration scamming artists who will rob him of a good chunk of his money and disappear. Just saying.

I can confirm what everyone else has said, this is 100% false.
