Post 18 Year Old - Seeking U.S Employment

Basically, I have been talking to this girl from Colorado for a few years, I left my secondary school in 2011 and had a gap year and then went to college. I left college due to a serious bereavement which unfortunately affected all of my studies indirectly so I was just going to go back again however;

My friend from the U.S said she could maybe get her boss to vouch for me on a green card and I could get a job where she works and permanently work there. How viable is this and could somebody give me steps to which I should advance on?

Thanks, Tom.

Hi Tom and welcome to the forum Thanks for introducing yourself in the Welcome Inn.

If you follow the link below, it will take you to the USA section of the forum. It's quite a lively area with lots of helpful folks to answer your questions. You will see that there is a sub-section entitled US Immigration and Visas. That may be of interest to you.

Hope everything works out for you

Thanks, Tom.
Also, here is a Wiki that you need to read through. Suffice to say that it's a lot more complicated and difficult than having a company "vouch for" you.

welcome to BE...but realistically, it's marriage or student visa or it's not happening for a rather long time.
