I think i made a thread about this before (a year or 2 ago), i can’t recall… anyway, this is in concerns about the employment rate. I’m thinking of Migrating over there to work (as a Graphic Designer), unfortunately, i’ve been told by every single relative and friend over there that migrating/working in the United States is not a safe idea at the moment due to the current recession. I was told this ever since Bush was in office (or leaving office)… I chatted with my Uncle from Vegas around 5 months ago, and he said the same negative thing. People are still getting kicked even if they where good and long time employees, it’s additionally hard to find a job (especially in Graphics/Digital designing). I was told that i’m better off staying or trying Singapore or Hong Kong instead.
It’s kind of upsetting for me. Ever since high school, i wanted work for Disney, Pixar, or any well known video/animation/tv company and to people living out of the US, earning US Dollars is big motivation.
My question is, is this issue really that serious? I mean, is this only in some States or is getting better now at the least?
