For the prospective immigrant whose internal compass points to America as the place to be; for those searching for a road map as a guide in building an exciting and new, meaningful life; and perhaps even for some who sometimes forget what a great gift it is to live and work in America-this book is for you. Discover the secrets of: Starting up and starting over. Your life as an immigrant is like being given a tabula rasa, a new tablet, a clean slate from which you can build a brave new life in a brave new world, brick by brick, one day at a time; knowing yourself, your skills and abilities and working at your own pace. Building financial muscle. Practical and easy ways of building a healthy financial position early; cash is king, a good credit history is queen; stretching the dollar to the max; prodigious saving techniques; why the meek shall inherit the earth. Getting legal status. The employment route; desperately looking for employer sponsorship; finding an immigration lawyer; using employment agencies and headhunters; working under the table and in the shadows; employers from hell, oppressive working conditions and basic human rights; the labor market, the nation's economic health and how it affects the flow of immigration. Achieving real success. True success versus the toxic kind; making sense of pyhrric victory; making it and making a difference; Quo vadis, immigrant soul? Bonus features: 10 chapter separators featuring bits and pieces of Americana, 23 illustrative visuals, and brilliant quotations at the foot of nearly every page of the book. - Publisher.… (more)
