THE SECRETS AND THE IMPORTANCE OF INTERNATIONALIZING LIFE IN THE USA
Internationalization of a career is a strategy that can open many opportunities for professionals seeking to develop in the international labor market.
The United States is a diverse and multicultural country, which makes integration possible and necessary for professional success.
To internationalize your career in the US, it's important to keep a few key things in mind. First, you must be willing to learn about American culture and employment practices. This includes knowing employment laws, cultural norms, and labor market trends.
Secondly, it is essential to have intercultural skills to adapt to a multicultural work environment. The ability to communicate with colleagues and clients from different cultural backgrounds is a valuable skill in any career.
Third, it's important to be open-minded and willing to adapt to a different work environment. American companies can have different hierarchies, leadership styles, and team dynamics compared to other countries, and being prepared to meet these challenges is essential for success.
In addition, it is important to keep in mind the importance of language. English is the predominant language in the United States, and strong English skills are critical to working and communicating effectively. If language is an obstacle, taking classes and practicing the language can be helpful.
Another strategy is to look for job opportunities that involve working with international companies or with clients from different countries. Getting a US Visa
Proper proof is very important if you want to legally enter the United States. Without a valid visa, you will not be allowed to enter the country and you risk being detained and deported.
The appropriate visa depends on the purpose of your trip and the length of your stay. For example, if you are visiting the United States for tourism, you will need to apply for a tourist visa.
If you are planning to study in the United States, you will need a student visa. If you are looking to work in the United States, you will need a work visa. It is important to get the right visa because each type of visa has specific requirements and restrictions.
In addition, certain visas have time restrictions, so if you stay in the United States longer than your visa allows, you may have trouble entering the country in the future. It is also important to obtain a proper visa because some, such as
the work visa, can lead to obtaining permanent residence
or citizenship in the United States. If you intend to settle in
the United States for the long term, it is important to start with the correct visa.
For example, the EB-2 visa is an immigrant employment visa category
in the United States that is intended for workers with advanced skills or degrees. Colombian citizens are eligible to apply for an EB-2 visa as long as they meet the eligibility requirements.
To qualify for an EB-2 visa, the applicant must meet the following basic requirements:
1. Have academic training with professional experience of more than five years in your area.
2. Professionals, technicians or entrepreneurs with exceptional skills in a particular field, demonstrated by publications, patents, awards or other achievements and who have experience of more than ten years.
A different alternative to the EB-2 is the EB-3 and in this case it is through a sponsor on American soil. For a Green Card in this category, the Colombian must have a job offer from an employer in the United States that is willing to sponsor the applicant. It is recommended that applicants consult with an experienced immigration attorney for more information on EB-2 visa possibilities for Colombian citizens and for advice on the professional application process.
