Possibilities for job for a foreign aspirant

Giovanni Di Attanasio
I had my bachelor's degree two years ago, now I'm studying biology at Universidad Central De Venezuela. I want to become a crime scene investigator but the politic situation in my country does not permit a good job. What more requirements do I need for a CSI job in US? Is it necessary to complete the biology grad?

Thanks for reading

Different agencies will have different requirements, I suggest you look at this websites employment page to see what they are. There is a link at the top of this page.

I suggest you look at the following page: How to Become a Crime Scene Investigator. It should give you an idea of what you need to do to become a CSI or Forensic Scientist in the United States.

To work as a non-permanent resident in the United States you would have to find an employer who will sponsor you for a temporary worker visa for a job opening they have. Since there are a lot of USA citizens applying for the CSI and forensic jobs, it will be difficult for you to get an agency to go to the trouble of sponsoring you unless you have a lot of experience or a speciality they really want. And most agencies want career employees, not temporary workers.

Another way to work legally in the United States would be to get a Green Card (Permanent Residence). It is possible to get a Green Card through a job offer. (You may be eligible to become a permanent resident based on an offer of permanent employment in the United States. Most categories require an employer to get a labor certification and then file a Form I-140, Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker, for you.)
