I'm a Burmese. I just got a bachelor degree from Thailand and I am a SCJP and CCNA. I started to work as a J2EE developer last two days. No experience. How much can I earn in U.S, if I apply from Thailand? And what if I can get SCWCD in next year.

It varies on many things, including where in the US you work. It can roughly range from $35,000 to $55,000. The bigger issue is that you're unlikely to get the H1-B visa given current market conditions. (I'm not saying don't try, just be warned that it's an uphill battle.)

Hi Ko Ko,
You should be happy where you are given your current situation. In US, you must have advance degree, certs, and experiences; otherwise, you may well sell padthai.
Regards,
MCao

hi:
"How much can I earn as an asian in U.S?" depends on what do you do. you do not earn a dime just being a asia, the min salary i believe is ~$7 / hr. holding a h-1b assue a salary of no less than average in in your qualification, your field in that region.

in any case, you need to have work permit. of course, if you are a student, you can work on campus w/o permit, the wage varies.
be really careful, i would take it very seriously.

If you are student. Right now even finding a job oncampus is difficult. So better stay where you are. Opportunities in asia are far better than US right now..I think with the current situation people are almost unemployed 2 or 3 years continuously.
