    Sorry, I'm just a train ride (or if I really feel like it, a long walk) away from NYC, so I can't help you with the greencard/visa issues. Depending on what part of the industry you want to work in, you may want to be unionized, there may be jobs available straight away as well. NBC Universal is always hiring people for various positions in the Fort Lee/Englewood areas of New Jersey (just across the Hudson river) and you may want to look into these, as the jobs actually in the city seem to fill much quicker.

    I know if you are looking to go to NYC for a job in the TV/Advertisng/Film industry, you best get a job BEFORE you just "show up" I have had a few gigs there and there is NO WAY you are just showing up and walking into WCBS and telling the receptionist the you need a job.

    Big city bring big competition, more work and little money but giving you chance to change. Everything is up to you.

    Hello orla,
    If you're referring to the TV/Cable/Broadcast industry, I don't believe the related companies will recruit potential workers outside of the US. There's so many available workers, unless you have a particular skill that is not found/available in the US, only then would a particular company go through paperwork to make you a permenant resident.

    The medical industry so far will recruit foreign college grads (as docotors and nurses, who pass the necessary exams) and the hospitals themselves will work to make them permanent because of the industry's need.

    I know to apply as an immigrant will take years, so your better off making it big else where (Canada, UK, Middle East etc.) until you get to work here legally and of your own merits.
