Cool construction jobs any ideas??

hi
my dad who is 59 has been working with big plant hire for over 30 years and wants to find a job and eventually retire in the US, are there any specialist recruitment agencies in america or is it a word of mouth thing?

he has been to the u.s on several occasions and all the machines he has seen he has worked on or similar ones for years.

can anyone help please??

the likelihood of you dad legally moving over is slim to none.....

his only real option is to marry a us citizen

are you a U.S. citizen? if you are you can petition your parents in

if you are not, you may find your dad getting a job here a tad hard.


both manpower and kelly services are here in the U.S. just like in the U.K. and they have hevy/industrial sides to them here too. that may be a first step.

Presuming he got a job offer next year............

He'd have to work until he was 70 to get medicare benefits, he'd need too as no health isurance co will touch with a bargepole for a decent price.

There is no retirement visa for the USA.

the proposal is a non starter at best.

actually, 6 months is too long...

the visa waiver is only valid for 3 months (90 days) but sure, if he can afford to buy a house here too and has the time to maintain both...why not.

nothing stopping him staying for 90 days at a time....

If he has a place back in England too, he should be able to do the B1-B2 tourist visa thing which is a 6 month thing
