Who do Russians without education work in the USA: the experience of an immigrant

Many Russians are thinking about moving to America, but they are often stopped by the fact that our education in the United States is not quoted. Channel author "Trips on the shelves" on "Yandex.Zen" tells who you can work in the States without education - and earn quite good money. Further - from the first person.

Service staff

Here I am talking about waiters, maids, sales assistants, cook assistants, cleaners. In a word, about all the professions that we face every day and which do not require special skills. Education in an American university is also not needed here.


Caring for children is very important and the profession of childcare is very popular in the United States. Usually Russian caregivers (especially when English is not very good) are hired by Russian families, but this is even good: you can communicate in your native language, and Russians pay the same as Americans do.

Beauty sphere

Almost all US women visit cosmetologists, massage with spa treatments and, of course, hairdressers and nail masters. And no matter how much I communicate with American women, absolutely all of them praise Russian craftswomen and prefer to visit them. A very good way to make money!

Have their

When I first came to America as a student, I had a work permit. But I have met many Russians who worked without any permission, receiving a salary "in envelopes" - and normal, I must say. Often such work can be found with immigrants from the CIS.

Brain Migration

In the USA there is a so-called “genius visa”. Provided that you are useful to the country as a scientist, inventor or even a person of art, America is ready to accept you as a citizen. This way of finding a job inspires respect, however, for this you need to be far from a simple hard worker.


Today, this method is rather ironic - and thank God, this is not the nineties. But it still exists, because it is not for nothing that in America you can still hear the expression "Russian mafia", which means "Russian mafia".
