Why do so many immigrants choose America as a destination? You might say flight from religious persecution or lack of gainful employment.
Nearly all the reasons people voluntarily leave their home countries to start fresh in a new land can be summed up in one phrase — the desire for opportunity. They want the opportunity to:
- Provide skilled labor for fair wages
- Follow their faith choice
- Live without fear of terrorism or oppression
- Raise their children in a safe environment
- Obtain quality medical care
You might not have considered immigrating to Ohio. However, the state can give you the opportunities you may desire, especially if you are seeking employment-based immigration.
Knowledge and training
One of the ways Ohio welcomes new Americans is with services—many of them free—that prepare them to enter and remain in the state workforce. For example, you can learn basic and advanced English at no cost.
Other free programs:
- Youth work preparation
- Adult job training and preparation
The Ohio To Work program offers a range of services to help immigrants obtain free job training and other benefits.
Business training and guidance
Those who want the opportunity to own an American business can find many paths to success here in Ohio. Our state offers free advising services to immigrants as well as free education about many aspects of operating a business. For example, you can learn how to hire and pay employees in compliance with state labor laws for free.
As you can see, we have no shortage of opportunities for those who want a good life, but first, you must get here. Employment immigration can be challenging, but legal guidance may help you meet and overcome any challenges you may face.
