Canadian considering move to US.

I am considering a move from Canada to the US. I am completly new to this process and would like some info on how to begin. Any website links or tips would be great. First off seems to be employment...I'm a certified GM Technician and I'd like to work for another dealership in the US. I have found many job postings for technicians in the area I'm interested in.

I guess the first question is: am I certified in the USA?

Next, what would be the first step...applying for a work visa?

I'm having trouble finding info online about how this process works in a simplified version. Any help would be great.


Thank you

I'm not really looking for Citizenship quite yet. I'd like to work there for a few years and make sure that it is a good fit for my family. I'm having some trouble in finding some clear information on how to go about this.

Their website also contains information for that:

"Learn about visiting the U.S. temporarily as a visitor (tourist, student, or worker) or permanently."

Seems to be what you are seeking.

Just remember...we don't have a national health care plan...that can be expensive and confusing to folks new to our "system".
