The next step is finding somewhere to live. If you're moving to a new country to work, the best idea is to spend a month or so in a hostel until you find the right place. Many of our work, study, teaching and volunteering programmes however, include accommodation, so you'll be able to bed down from day one with a friendly host family, or other likeminded students and volunteers.
It also pays to do research to make sure that the qualfication requirements for your line of work are the same in your destination country as they are in the USA.
