Company Bio: Stateside Careers specializes in providing Artists and Business Professionals with tailored US visa, career coaching & business management support & action-plans. This support enables clients to move their career(s) to the US within expedited time frames by better understanding, and working purely in accordance with strict US visa criteria.

Whether clients wish to steer their careers to the US within 6 months, 1 year, or 5+ years, at Stateside Careers we focus specifically on the following US visas: O-1B, E-3 (Australian Nationals only), H1B, and EB1A (Green Card).

Stateside Careers works closely with some of the most highly respected, experienced and successful US Immigration Attorneys, we are not a law firm and will not offer "legal advice" to our clients. We work very closely with our clients in order to provide a tailored career plan that is in line with the most up-to-date and intricate visa criteria. This in turn also empowers our clients to be prepared to adjust effectively to the US market and assimilate with greater ease.

For those clients who are already 'ready' to pursue legal support, Stateside Careers offers very specific coaching on precisely how to research and select a suitable Attorney/Law Firm, and will also provide clients with tailored relocation & 'culture assimilation' support, when required.
