Default Thinking of emigrating to Charlotte, Nc

Dear all.
I am recently joined to this site, and hope that I may find some helpful advise. At the moment I am living in France, however the work situation in my area is really bad,( even the agency work). I am a joiner carpenter by trade, and have mainly renovation experience.
I gather by reading some of the on line news papers that there is a shortage skilled building workers.
My problem is that I have been searching for a good number of months to try and find a company that would be prepared to sponsor me. My girlfriend ( from Charlotte), has also drawn a blank in her research too.

Any help would be very appreciated, and thank you for reading this post.

Welcome to BE.

From what you have said moving to the US for work is not an option for you. I think the only option would be through marriage. Below is a link to our US forums...at the top of the page is a list of sub forums...choose whichever one fits your needs...open a new thread and ask your questions.

USA - British Expats

Good luck.

Hello and a big welcome to BE.

Excellent information can be found in the BE Wiki, not forgetting the Living and Moving Abroad forum that will help you, another set of great help is the permanent threads at the TOP of each forum, they are very pertinent to that particular forum and makes sensible reading.

Moderators deal with any problems that arise such as inappropriate posts, spammers etc, you will find their names at the bottom right hand side of each forum's index in bold font.

Please contact me if I can give you any further help.

Your choices appear to be either marriage, or, if you have the capital and experience, buy or start your own carpentry business (E-2 visa).

BTW do you speak Spanish?
Thank you for your reply I appreciated the info. No I do not speak Spanish, however close to fluency in French

This forum is purely for new member introductions. All discussions about visas etc should take place in the US forums. Thank you.

Please.
That would be akin to opening a duplicate thread which we do not encourage.

The OP has been given the link to the US forums.
