    i have been working as a government employee in my country for almost 24 years now. I hope to try my luck in the States. This is the first time I had the courage to apply abroad. I am so overwhelmed that there are Filipinos able to make it legally and I am hoping to be among them. I am hoping I can be assisted/guided in applying.

    Foreigners/aliens coming in my country can get a job that fast especially in the field of sports and recreation, i hope to succeed there in the States just as these aliens are in my place.

    During the last year, I have applied for over 70 government jobs and only interviewed for 2. I still have not been able to land a govt job. I am 10% compensated vet and this so frustrating. Is there anyone I can turn to get some help?

    I am currently seeking re-instatement. I am aware this is a long, drawn out process, even for the best of us.

    Thank you for this helpful email. It was very informative. How do you write a KSA statement? If you wouldn't mind, it would be very helpful to me if you'd email me an example.
