Story behind Career in Transit

Will I be able to find work easily on a dependent visa? How do I utilize my knowledge and upgrade my skills? How do I fill gaps in my employment history? Why am I losing self-confidence? What is the right approach to finding a job? These are just a few questions spouses wonder about when they move to the US on dependent visa. Spouses who are unable to find answers or  explore work and study related options feel that their world has shrunk down to the walls of their apartments and start going through depression, loss of enthusiasm and self-esteem.

Thousands of Immigrant women professionals, who accompany their husbands on a dependent visa status like F2 , H4 etc, are not allowed to work and involuntarily become a homemaker. We understand well that it’s depressing to not know anybody in a new place, being away from close family and friends and not being able to work or study full time. We are here to guide you and help escape this discouraging situation.  Instead of complaining and not doing anything about it, it’s time to look for options as there are plenty of opportunities out there to enhance your skills and someone may just need you!

Through this website we will discuss a wide range of work, study and other options for spouses to consider, who enter the US on a dependent visa, in order to upgrade their knowledge and skills. We will not only discuss ways to secure a job through visa sponsorship but also how to utilize long days without a job. We will post success stories of spouses who have managed this transition in their career successfully. We also welcome readers to share their thoughts, post comments and questions on our blog entries. We encourage spouses who have encountered similar experiences in the past to email their stories to us at cit4spouses@gmail.com. Your stories will be shared on this forum to help other readers. It’s also a great way to network, arrange for local meet-ups and make some good friends.

Remember, we are always here to help you through this difficult phase and answer any of your questions!

Happy Browsing,

Shruti and Ankita

    Hello!, great initiative!!!… I was wondering about F2 Visa. Are there any job searching options for us?, because the info I read in your blog is for H1 visa.

    Hi Grima. Job searching options are the same for people on any dependent visa i.e. F2, H4, etc. We suggest you to read the blogs under Job category http://careerintransit.wordpress.com/category/job/
