Hi guys, I did have a search through the forum but I didn't find anything quite like my question. Perhaps someone might offer me some advice. I'm a UK physics PhD student, with about 18 months before I graduate (in principle). At this point I am beginning to get a little fed up of academia and I think that this sort of life is not for me. I have no firm plans at the moment, but suffice it to say that I'm considering careers in oil and gas, other industry, or perhaps even something as left-field as management consultancy. In any event, my priority is to move abroad for a few years, preferably to the United States. The main issue I think here is visa issues: I am a British citizen and (so far as I can deduce) currently ineligible for US citizenship. I am aware that some employers will sponsor a foreigner. Unfortunately the only places I know who will do this for someone in my rather junior position are the US national labs, which is less than ideal. Does anyone have any experience with making this sort of a move? Thanks for reading.
