Living in the U.S., I got the taste for how life in the “land of the free” could be like (Not entirely free since international students are not technically allowed to work at all or just limited to on campus work) and I wanted to stick around for a bit - not forever per se but just enough to have a couple years of experience and then move back to Europe.
Thinking of moving to the States? Here are some tips, I would have wished someone had told me:
