I've always wanted to work in the USA but after lots of research I am just baffled about the best way of getting out there...visas/job searching and all of that. As I am from the UK though I can get a years work visa in Canada and was thinking of saving up some money and heading out that way in 6 months or so. I've always wanted to travel but worry that if I took a year out of the industry I'd get behind so want to travel through work.
I guess I just wondered what the motion graphics scene was like out there? I've also heard that job hunting works differently over there, much less advertising on job sites and a lot more word of mouth/checking designers sites (not that I don't do that in the UK). Essentially if anyone could shed some light or share any interesting stories about setting up as a mograph artist in a new country? I'm a Junior at my current company as well so wondering if that would be a major hindrence?
Cheers, looking forward to reading any responses
