Ahhh, never thought of that, thanks! Truth be told, I'm much better off career-wise than I was before I came here. In the UK, I had no office experience whatsoever, but the Dept of Transport hired me, so that looked good on my CV for over here. I've been doing office work for 4 and a half years now, so that should better my chances of making a little more.

I've worked for agencies in the UK before, and it wasn't ideal, but it wasn't horrible, either. I was always treated fairly, so that'd be a good place to start once I get back. Thanks again.

You want to look for an employer with a US connection, a position where your US experience can be presented as an advantage.
