The American economy has created millions of new jobs in the USA over the past several years. This is good news for people who want to immigrate to the United States, since individuals who have been granted a Green Card are legally permitted to live, study and work in the USA.
The USAFIS Organization has helped millions of people to apply for US immigration through the Green Card Lottery. Today, many USAFIS customers live and work in the USA as permanent residents or American citizens.
People who immigrate to the United States with assistance from USAFIS have many US job options, ranging from low-skilled occupations to highly-skilled professions.
Some of the fastest growing occupations in the USA are in healthcare, construction, data analysis and alternative energy systems, so these are some job options in the USA for immigrants to consider.
Since Green Card holders are allowed to start a business, self-employment is another possibility for work in the USA. USAFIS collaborates with US immigration lawyers to make the Green Card Lottery process as easy as possible!
A key aspect of the “American Dream” is the opportunity for socioeconomic mobility. Having access to the US education system has allowed many Green Card holders to improve their career and income prospects by receiving additional training which can “open the door” to higher-paying jobs in the USA.
In general, there are better job options in the USA for immigrants with higher education.
- For example: the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported in 2016 that 27.7% of jobs in the USA do not require any formal educational credential and that the national mean salary for these occupations was $25,000 annually.
- 36% of US jobs require a secondary/high school education (national mean salary $41,730 per year)
- 2.6% of US occupations require some college, but no degree (national mean salary $37,430 annually)
- 6% of jobs in the USA require a post-secondary non-degree award (national mean salary $39,140 per year)
- 2.4% of US occupations require an Associate’s Degree (national mean salary $53,730 annually)
- 21.2% of jobs in the USA require a Bachelor’s Degree (national mean salary $82,260 per year)
