Another humanities-grad-student-meets-real-life question. Finishing a linguistics Ph.D., have a classics M.A.; my academic job search is drawing a blank, so I'm looking further afield. What are some specific skills I could acquire that would make me more employable, and how do I go about acquiring them? Complications: I'll need visa sponsorship for any kind of employment, and time is a factor. [more inside]

Japan Visa/Work Problems, Cont.: Living in Japan, scored a job as an ALT in Japan that starts in a little over a month; already signed the contract and got my work visa renewed.

My husband has been offered a great job in New York and we're looking to move out there in September (we're both British citizens currently living in the UK). He'll be on a work visa and I'll only have residence rights - can I work as self-employed, or freelance for a UK company, without a work visa? [more inside]

What's a job that's easy to get that requires a bachelor's degree? [more inside]
I'm a Canadian going to grad school in the U.S. I don't have a student Visa as it is not required for Canadians - we only need to show an approved I-20 form at the border - and I'm trying to figure out if and where I can work. I'm employed by the University as a TA but I'm not sure if I can work anywhere off campus or how that might be done. Any thoughts?
A dear friend of mine desperately wants to improve his life and follow his dreams. I live in a far freer country so I'm unsure of exactly how best to show him support sometimes. I want to tell him not to give up hope and to work hard towards his goals, that it's the only way they'll happen. Sometimes I wonder if maybe I'm just being an overly optimistic American, though.

Insights, please... [more inside]
