How to Find a Job in America

Joan Fridenberg


This book contains realistic job information based on the experience of many successful job seekers and on information and advice from US Department of Labor. Written in clear simple English, it contains special information about American job customs and about laws and practices related to immigration and discrimination. It also gives a systemic plan for finding a job.

For many years, the New York Association for New Americans (NYANA), the leading absorption organization, gave this guide to every new arriving Russian speaker. This guide, like no other, has assisted hundreds of thousands to find their first, second and third job in America.
Of course, today’s America is different from that of 1992, new immigration regulations etc., but the core of work-culture and labor markets remain the same. This bilingual guide also serves to improve and consolidate the language skills required to find a job in America.
