TLDR: As a Canadian, I can't seem to find a US based job because no one is willing to offer sponsorship. Any advice?
I'm looking for my next BD/sales job and am motivated to work with a US based company. I've done this before (via TN visas, which are usually "easier" for Canadians to access than H-visas, etc) but this time around, even the big companies are balking at the idea of sponsorship.
I know there are other routes into the US like transfering in through a Canadian office, getting an O visa, etc. I've been asked, "why not stay in Canada?" -- I love Canada but the jobs here are limited, even at the Canadian offices of US companies that are here...in fact, some have told me that the only way into the company is through a US based role. I feel that the growth potential just isn't in Canada.
I know part of this visa problem is a political/regulatory one. But does anyone have advice around how I can find a US based job? I've been relentlessly networking but constantly hit a wall. I'm feeling really stuck and that I cannot even consider the US an option anymore.
