    If the freelancer is an American citizen and person of talent, then yes. There are no firm legal guidelines on whether or not a foreigner may work in America; it is possible to get permission from specific US organizations such as artists or documentary filmmakers. But if you're working without authorization, be aware that this puts you at risk for deportation and makes it exceedingly difficult to gain future authorization for work due to your undocumented history while living in the United States.

    One of the United States' largest industries is Information Technology, and there are many positions available from entry-level to executive. The Information Technology industry in the US has been expanding substantially over the last decade, with 70% of total jobs created by 2020 projected to be IT related. In 1997, there were around 3 million IT jobs available in the US - a number which doubled to over 6 million by 2007. This trend is expected to continue going forward as more and more companies look for ways to stay competitive in a global environment.

    Yes, but there are some potential hurdles. Firstly, you'll need to apply for an E-2 treaty investor visa through the United States government if you're trying to start your own company or work independently at a non-American company. Some professions may allow an individual to sidestep this process and still work in the United States on something like H1B visas, but all freelancers will have to get an E-2 if they want to freelance without any ties with local companies. A few things worth noting: When applying for your visa, it takes about 6 months of correspondence back and forth before you can get approved for your E-2 status (and even then it's only good for 3 years).

    Yes. If you are looking for a company that hires freelancers, look into Upwork or Freelancer.com. If you have experience with freelance writing or programming, there are many online jobs available. Freelance farm is also another site to check out if you are interested in doing day labor type jobs on the side of your full-time work! Just know that some clients may require more than just an internet connection to work from home if they have limited availability to meet in person at their business offices. Essentially, there's plenty of opportunity--just search around and find what works best for you!

    Freelancers need to be able to provide their own promotional materials (business cards, brochures, videos), and typically offer their services at an hourly rate. Legal issues for freelancing in the US are primarily governed by state laws, rather than federal ones. This can make it complicated when determining whether or not you must register your business. The government recognizes principles of agency law through which freelancers' activities are regulated under a principal-agent relationship with individuals as either agents or principals. If there's a question about freelance work being taxable as self-employment income, consult with a tax accountant or attorney who specialize in employment law.

    The short answer is that it depends on a few factors. You could work for a company from another country which has established a corporate office in the United States, to which you would be assigned. The long answer however is much more complicated and will depend on your personal qualifications and the needs of the company you are looking to work for. In order to better help you, we suggest following these three steps: 1) First take into account whether or not you have any educational or skillset requirements that would exclude someone without them from being able to apply 2) Consider what type of position and location best suits your job search criteria 3) Take all this information onto websites such as careerbuilder.
