I see from your past posts that you are actually wanting to go to the USA to live with your girlfriend, is that still the case? Have you two met in person yet?

As for getting a work visa, your question is way too vague. You have to narrow down what work visa you might even qualify for, and THEN look towards a company that, in this bad economy, would prefer to hire a non-USC over a USC. What kind of work do you do? What are your qualifications?

Hi Noorah no still not met up yet and at present still without work as made redundant since last year.

I was basically looking for any recruiter that was wishing to hire from overseas who is willing to pay for a work visa.
I don't have anything major in terms of qualifications only the usual g.s.c.e's, gnvq in business, pc support unit of credit and data communications and netoworking certificate for theory and practical.
The rest is self taught or experience in retail, sales, I.T. and admin.

None of that will get you a work visa, I'm afraid.

Have you made any plans for a 'visit' yet? I know you guys are in love and just want to be together in the US, but as you have been advised, you need to prove that you have met and spent time together before you will get a K1 Visa. Sucks huh? but it's the way it works and it is that way for good reason.

The job part is not easy either, you have no desireable qualifications or experience, can you really see a US employer spending all that money on a Visa to get you here? There are millions of people here already with the same or more experience as you. Sorry to be so negative, but you really need to make yourself more attractive to employers here and get that ticket sorted, that's a biggy!...Good luck sweety

I haven't read through all your past threads, so I'll ask: Is there a particular reason you guys have not met in person yet? I think marriage is going to be your only way into the USA, from what you describe of your employment qualifications.

Unfortunately, none of that sounds like it will qualify for a work visa.

Sounds like she has money and a job, is there a reason she can not visit the UK?

Get her to the UK, she can visit for 6 months.

You've no chance getting a job without 12 years of IT experience being your best bet...and with new cost of H1 visa shooting right up, what's in it for an employer to bother when people are dime a dozen on the ground able to work already?
