Is it easier to marry your American fiancé and wait for the green card versus applying for jobs and ticking on the “I’ll require sponsorship” box 🤦🏻‍♀️

i honestly think it is easier to go down the marriage route. but it sucks that we’re in this position! we shouldn’t have to choose to be dependent on a relationship or an employer to be here. i wish being good at our jobs was enough.


Huh? Ofcos it'll be easier getting married and a green card. That means no work and extra cost required by the agency. You want to make yourself easy to hire.

I went through two rounds of interviews for
a job that the posting stated $36.66 per
hour (FP&A Analyst)…the company
recruiter had told me in the initial call the
pay could be 32-36 because of the other
benefits. If I do get a job offer what range
should I try for? I was really hoping to get
around the 36-40 but now I feel like they
may try to offer lower than what was
posted. Also there was no range but the
average for this position is upper 70s-90k.
Thanks for any help!
