Yes, the position has to require a degree, and you have to have the relevant degree.

Maybe don't give up on the Canada option. At least with Canada, you have more options for self-sponsorship which is a really big hurdle when it comes to US immigration.

It's the same the world over.

You said upthread that you have lots of friend in Florida? It reminded me of my years in California which taught me that you can make a friend in 5 minutes, but that after 5 years nothing has changed.

Yes everytime I go I meet up with old friends and make new ones. Even potential girlfriends whether they would consider long term and then eventual marriage i need to work out.

How do you mean after 5 years nothing has changed?

I guess buffets and American diner food. Although living out there would defo cook as vegetables seem rare in restaurants and often raw which I don't eat only cooked ones. Pretty good pizza and steaks too

A lot of American "friendships" are casual verging on disposable - friends come and go very easily, but creating long term, deep friendships is commonly reported as a very tough challenge in America.

That said, personally I didn't find it much different in the UK. I have a few friends from uni that I still keep in touch with, but other long term, deep friendships are rare, and I suspect that it is the same for Americans - a few long term friends from college, but everything else is quite superficial.

Possibly. Although I was wondering if it meant she had the same sense of "dress" as The Husband of mine. I dread to think!
