Looking for a job in the United States can be challenging. It takes time for people to find the right pay, hours and industry. Many jobs require English skills. Getting an initial job, even if it is outside your profession, will prepare you for a better job in the future. Many first jobs in the United States require working outside normal business hours. It is common to work weekends, late at night, or during holidays. Some government benefits require you to have a job, be looking for a job, or be training for a job.
