#1
I'm in a dilemma, I'm waiting to receive my permanent resident card at the end of this year, and I'm living in a usa border town with MX, I would really like to work here at USA but there are not quality/qms jobs here I think the more than I can get for now It will be a clerk in a maquila warehouse versus to return to work in the quality/qms field to a factory in Mexico but living here in usa this implies cross the bridge, wake up early, a low wage rate compared with USA, get a day care for my little kid,
I'm getting worried about what will be the best path for my career and my family, :eek::(:confused::bonk::nope:
Also I would like to do an MBA here in USA but currently I don't have any money our current income it is just enough to cover our bills, food,
I know that you can do much to help me, I have to decide, but extern my feeling makes me feel better.

Re: Work at USA or retunt to MX?

Tough decision, and I apologize for throwing in another option that may make the decision tougher. Can you move to a different location that may have better opportunities for you and your family? Can you look outside your area and see if it can be better somewhere else?

If you can, I would not move just because you can, I would start looking for work outside your area then move when an opportunity knocks.

I feel for you...hang in there...stick to your guns...do you have confirmation that you are obtaining your permanent resident card by end of 2012? Then, one suggestion in line w/ what you already described is to get any paying job so you can get a salary to cover your needs/expenses until you get your resident card & until you can get your next employment opportunity. That card is a big thing...once you have that card, you would have access to other jobs, better paid that will open new doors in the future...would you be open to relocate? If so, then you can consider other offers within the US with better pay...it is certainly not easy...focus, effort & time will reward your situation eventually. Seek a mentor & stay connected.

About studying...now probably might not the best time so you may have to postpone your MBA dreams until it is more feasible. Whatever you do...stay connected within your quality colleagues specially if you take a non-quality job during your transition period...good luck & much success to you & the little ones!

...I'm sure others may have other solutions at hand...

Thanks Ana Maria, well I have an interview with the usa government next month and I'm very positive that everything will go well, so after that interview I should receive my green card may be in about a month. I think relocation could be a good option, and thanks for your advice.
