Everyone is in a crisis.

You have had enough of America? What did America do to you? It seems everyone that has a qualification/degree from lands afar just isn't good enough to meet American standards anyway, and they usually have to get retraining to get back into their field here.

uhm....Iran must have job openings......

Wow, that is harsh. My qualification/degree is American anyway so it isn't a matter of me being a sour grape.

But there is also a grain of truth in what you scooped at, the job hunt and visa troubles are a bit too much for the salaries offered at this time. Also, the lifestyle is.... American.

I don't want to start an Europe vs USA flame war right now though, both have their upsides and downsides.

I was just guessing you got your training in Europe. I have seen many immigrants come here as qualified Doctors etc. only to find out that they do not meet the NA standards.
American lifestyle is rather odd. It depends on where you go in the states. Same in Canada. One side of the country is completely different than the other. Its like a whole bunch of countries packed into one. US and Canada are very diverse.
Awe.....no flame war .
Uhm........Cuba?

I probably wouldn't move to America even if I had a shot at a well-paid job in my field.

"European" is a broad word. Especially Belgium probably has the highest educations in the world. We get people from every country to attend our uni's. American degrees are not always enough here either. In the end, your degree doesn't matter. It's your working experience.

10. Finland
9. Australia
8. United Kingdom
7. Norway
6. South Korea
5. New Zealand
4. United States
3. Japan
2. Israel
1. Canada

Locally, the entire world goes to our Universities too, as I have also found to be true in just about every other country I have been to.
Degree does matter. I have seen highly qualified professions come to Canada only to be rejected because they do not meet the Canadian requirements. Same in USA. Same all over the world. People must meet the requirements set out in the country they are immigrating/seeking work in.
I think its time that a world standard be made. Some people rejected is just plain stupid as they are more than qualified but don't have the papers of the country they have immigrated to.

Why thank you :]

Finished first day of work. The people are awesome, apart from the fact we're 10 guys and not a single girl. /forever alone.

I am pretty pleased how work went, they bought a new pc for me because it's a new position. The monitor is a 24' monster. I have to move my head to look at stuff on it.

There's the thing that my experience is in the academic sector; I just finished my education (for now). But I have some significant skills and I am definitely positive about the idea of working in Belgium.

Electra, I have heard some anecdotal evidence of immigrant Ph.D holders in Canada that end up as cab drivers, and I am a bit afraid of that.

lol'd

Just move your head further away from the screen and you won't have to move your head too much

So, had a math test I scored a 75% on (which was quite good compared to the majority who took the test), will have a logic test next wednesday, I wonder what I'd score on that one.

University's been doing me well tbh, out of four girls that are in my year, two take interest in me, the other two are a lesbo and a physically handicapped (broken leg lol). Feeling so alpha here. x) But I also hang out with a *** dude who's an expert programmer, such a great guy, even Ahmed would like him.


Still not really used to the long days though. Lots of information to be processed every day ;_; which would be fine if I weren't so stupid not to bring any food with me and refuse to buy food there because it's so expensive.

I want to get this when I graduate, but it will cost me around 20k to achieve this certification. x.x;

Need to go to the doc to get treated for **** . I'll just go in for anemia this month and hypokalemia next month. Idk bro, prescription better be cheap or I'll *****. Jk, my insurance is ok but I'd still like to make sure everything is covered. Thinking about getting life insurance and pet insurance, but first I need to look for a good car insurance. I wish they were offered in bundles at a lower cost lulz.. Getting a little overwhelmed with this. @_@
