I have Dual Citizenship for Australia / USA. I just need to make sure my Passport and Entry Visa is valid and I can just walk right into a job over in the USA.

I don't think there is many techies earning $60k either. There is no way that i am going to leave Australia to America just to work at GeekSquad or Walmart or Staples. No offence to those people that work there.

You have enough experience where you could make $40k-ish at the right place, it's just a matter of finding the right company. The good jobs are few and fare between and they're probably not looking to pay for relocation, either.

Yes. That the problem. Finding the right company. I just saw an ad in the paper for a company down the road from where i now live. They are offering up to $50k depending on experience.

Yeah, and you guys just made the news too
Australians have the world's biggest homes: study - People's Daily Online
One of our gov. funded $18 million annual gross. local road companies. just said nothing until march. fyi. If you really want to make the move. imo, save a ton of money and wait until turn of next year. we should know march - april time frame how broke our gov. really is.
