Work in IT industry needing for VISA sponsorship (San Francisco)
I'm new in this forum, thanks in advance for any reply.
I'm wondering to move in San Francisco next August/September Protected content I'm looking for feedbacks about job opportunities around SF bay area.
I'm Italian, 29 years old, I have a bachelor degree in Computer Science, 4 years of experience in private companies and research centers. In short my professional skills can be resumed with: JavaEE-webGIS development and Linux system administration.
Assuming (could I?) that my professional profile is fit for many job offers in SF:
- is the need for a VISA sponsorship too much onerous requirement to be addressed by companies?
- is the sponsorship a way that companies usually only take when the right profile for a job isn't found after several months?
My idea is to move in SF for about 2 months with a Turist VISA and start to search for opportunities on site. Other than apply for open positions and job ads:
- are there other channels to build connections between workers and companies?
