Question HELP NEEDED! USA ACA or something else??

Hi. nearly 2 years after I graduated from The University of York and so far failing to get a job on a ACA/CTA scheme and I'm stuck for options of where to go next. My main goal is to live in California. I did a study abroad year at UCSD as part of my degree and fell in love! Luckily my partner has the same goal, but I'm really struggling to think of how best to make the dream a reality.

My degree is in Economics and I'm interested in Tax and Accountancy, but at this point I would be happy to pursue any career that would get me to America. It's more important to me to be living over there in a decently paid job that I can challenge myself in than it is to work in any specific sector.

So really my question is: should I start to self fund the ACA with the hope that I then get a job in this area and get to America, or is there a better idea that I've not thought of??

Any advice is appreciated because I'm really stumped!

ps. my partner is a British citizen and not American (unfortunately) and works in recruitment (which we are hoping is pretty transferable)

Get a job with a UK company that has offices in the US... and then get yourself transferred over after a year.

You and your partner will need to be married to derive any US immigration benefit. Just a quick heads up!

The problem you face is that it is likely impossible for you to immigrate to the US with your current qualifications and experience, and once you have qualified in the UK, there is virtually no demand in the US for a British-trained tax accountant! You may need to reappraise your career goals and/or your emigration dreams.
