    Hi all.

    I am an Italian citizen, but I'm attending a MA in International Public Relations at Cardiff University. My dissertation will be handed in before September 2010, and after that (maybe even before) I will start working in UK.

    For relevant personal reasons I have to spend from 3 to 9 months in Florida, during the first 9 months of 2011. I already know I have accommodation in Tampa, but of course I plan to spend those months working in the PR/Communications field.

    So, this is my situation.
    I started checking the US immigration policies, and I'm totally baffled. Apparently, someone with a postgraduate degree and a job (I plan to contact companies before getting there) is still not welcome. I don't seem to fit in any of their complicated categories.

    I hope I'm wrong, so I'm asking you guys.

    Thanks in advance.

    It's damn near possible to get a work visa in america

    You need to find an organisation to sponsor you, and then you and the org will have to convince them that the job you do can not be completed by another us citizen

    When I went to america I got a J1 visa


    This is probably your best bet to legally work in the US, but you'll still need to find a sponsor organisation. I went through Camp America
