Venezuela has temporary protected status (TPS), so many immigrants are making their way to the United States. They are seeking safety and opportunity, just as immigrants have done for the entire history of the U.S.
What jobs and opportunities should they consider? Making a living quickly after arriving is clearly quite important, so let’s take a look at some of the main jobs immigrants get.
Considering entry-level positions
Now, there are many immigrants who may have extensive specialized skills and a high level of education. Some immigrants come to the United States to work in the tech field or the medical field, for instance. However, many who are simply seeking a better life and an escape from troubles at home may be more interested in entry-level positions. They are often in the following areas:
- Manual labor
- Customer service
- Agricultural positions
- Textile jobs
- Food and beverage
- Personal care
For instance, someone may pick up a transportation job driving people around the city as soon as they arrive in the United States. With the invention of GPS technology, it is no longer necessary to be familiar with an area to find valuable work.
Getting a job and starting your future
No matter what type of work you’re looking for, there are a lot of things to consider as you seek a new life — and a new future — here in the United States. Be sure you know what legal steps you’ll have to take — such as getting the right work visa to take on this position — to make sure it all goes smoothly.
