Hi, I am 25 years-old Japanese web engineer. I am enjoying programming everyday.
I would like to work in America, especially in Silicon Valley because America is the mecca of software.
Almost all new technologies and breaking innovations are being born there.
Then, what should I do for getting a job in America? I don't have any foreign experience. I have some foreign friends but neither study nor work experience.
I am planning the following parallel three strategies (I am working at a startup now but will become a freelance soon):
- Going to University in America for master degree of Computer Science.
- Get a job in America straightly by standing out in Social activity, such as OSS contribution or writing dev post (like here).
- Widen my network(=meet people)
The first one looks hard but robust way. However I might not be able to go to a good university as my terrible GPA in bachelor of economics...
Do you have any ideas? I appreciate any advice.
