Default UK Banker wanting dream US move

Hi, im Andrew, im 26, from Birmingham England and I currently work in Banking for Lloyds Bank.

Since first visiting the U.S. on vaccation to New York back in 2005, I have dreamed over moving over to the U.S. I have visited many times, and every time, it confirms how much I want to make this dream move happen.

Unfortunately having left school with just a Drama GCSE and a professional qualification in soccer coaching, I struggle to find a way of making my dream a reality.

I currently work in Banking for one of the worlds largest banks, however unless I can somehow gain a significant few rises, I don't see how I could apply to our New York office.

To be completely honest, I would take on any job role if it meant I could make the move.

Any suggestions, help, advise would be truly much appreciated, thanks guys

You actually have a better chance than most.

Take a few years, improve your qualifications and/or responsibilities and transfer with your company, or marriage.
In a nutshell.

Your other skills are non-starters compared to your bank job.

Check out the various wiki's on this site.

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.

"All roight?"

I love how everyone says that in Brum.

Hotscot seems to have covered the bases.

Pulaski's Ways: How to Live and Work in the USA : British Expat Wiki

So basically no chance realistically until you've got yourself into a position that'll transfer you. So think long term plan.

Welcome to BE though.
