What's the best degree to get in order to get an H1-B (or similar/"qualified immigrant") visa relatively easily after graduation?
I'm looking for the option which offers the best prospects. I don't come from an elite school.
i heard comp sci specialised in programming is the way to go but it still requires some company to do paperwork for you and prove they didnt find an american to do the job
afaik its this correct me if im wrong? also interested in how hard is it for a masters degree white person from a nordic country to immigrate to USA without falling to a mexicans level and do illegal shit/fake marriage
The one person I knew who got an H1B because of his US degree managed to land an co-op at a company and sponsors many H1Bs under the guise of training them to set up reactors in India.
His major was chem E. He also had a good GPA and was charismatic as hell.
He makes good money, but is followed everywhere by security and cannot be in any room that handles zirconium.
>get a job in a multinational
>get transferred to US branch
Isn't that the best course of action?
By the way, everyone here recommends engineering/CS in order to become an expat in the US, but how unlikely is it to get a US job with an economics degree, and what kind of job could I get?
I want to get a master's and probably focus on something like geopolitics, economic intelligence or whatever. Would it be worthless?
Watch the elections.
If Trump wins: focus on whatever they need in your shit country.
If Hillary wins: public administration
If Sanders wins: Black Studies
If Rubio wins: Male Sexuality
If Christie wins: Criminal Justice
If Jeb wins: Chinese
>for 10 years
Is that always the case?
I was told some people become expats after two or three years.
>Unless you marry here
I could go to Vegas on a holiday and marry a stripper, then divorce once everything's settled. What's the catch?
Is Trump against all immigration, especially qualified, white immigrants from developed countries?
Because I'm not a muslim/indian/gook, I'm getting a degree, and my country's not shit.
Do you have a master's?
Also, I suspect it's much easier for Canadians to work in the US
> I could go to Vegas on a holiday and marry a stripper, then divorce once everything's settled. What's the catch?
Do you really think the US government hasn't thought of this? You have to stay married for three years and provide documentation of co-habitation etc. It's obvious why you didn't go to an elite school. Keep your mediocre brain in your mediocre country and fuck off.
Which is why I asked what the catch was since it did seem too simple, thanks for clarifying. I heard stories about arranged marriages in the US so I wasn't sure.
There's no need to be so mad, though
Indian SWE are almost always garbage. No offense... Indian mechanical engineers, I've had some luck with. The caste system over there fucks up the whole flow. You've got super confident Brahmin sacks of shit that don't know how to turn a computer on, but expect $75/hr; meanwhile, there's genius untouchables, who are timid as mice, and think they take direction from the cafeteria worker, because she has a dot on her head.
If you aren't Indian, disregard all of this.
1a - yes, if you've been a legal residence for 7-10 years you can apply for full citizenship
1b - You can but now you have to be married for 3-5 years, provide all documents to living together, and have to match most of your wife's answers when interviewed
2 - Trump is against illegal immigration but liberal propaganda just blow it out of proportion because the majority voters are idiots.
3 - Yes it's much easier for canadians and most border states have stream line deals with canada on tax repayments and stuff.
That isn't as important to me as simply being allowed to reside in the US indefinitely (permanent residency).
Forget the marriage thing, it was hypothetical. I'm guessing marriage is a poor investment in America anyway.
>against illegal immigration
Wouldn't harsher laws against illegal immigrants make it easier for legal, qualified immigrants to enter US territory anyway? Assuming said illegals are stealing a substantial amount of jobs from American citizens

People seem to forget this
Either way Trump probably isn't getting elected, is he? The majority of American media seems biased against him, just like he's considered to be more of a joke or nutjob than anything else in other countries.
But they don't allow you to join the army unless you've been a resident for 2+ years. How did you do it?
Also does a graduate degree change anything for H1B? Are MSc and/or PhD holders exempt from the H1B cap if the degree is a relevant subject (eg. finance, economy, etc)?
