Hi,
I forgot to tell you about my profile. I have worked as a software developer in Java for 1 year. I am a mathematics graduate and have done a software course from CDAC,Mumbai.

In which visa have you moved to US ? If you moved in H1B visa then who is your current employer ?

What is work permit ? Do you mean SSN and stuffs ?

If you want a job in Corporate then go for MS with top 10 Universities

There is no other way to get a job through Consultancy

Defiantly you have few relatives/friends in USA, try to understand actual situation from them.

I moved here with my husband who is doing his residency. I am on J2 visa(dependent on J1).

What is work permit ? Do you mean SSN and stuffs ?



I have applied for EAD(Employment Authorization Document).EAD is a work permit for some aliens like spouses of J1 visa. On J2 visa, I can do either of work or study.

I am planning to go for further studies, but in the meantime, I want to work.

If anybody can advice me, then I will be really greatfull.

Thanks
