We were seleted form the pool (along with everyone else!) on Sep 1. I am expecting that we will not have all of the visas in place until March or April which is fine. Right now we are fairly open on when we move but I think we would be moving by August 05 at the latest.

I will start applying for jobs once we get the visas taken care of, that I am sure of. My question is should I start applying sooner than that? I can move over more quickly if needed but it seems like most reccomendations say wait until you have the legal right to work?

What do you think? I know a lot of people from the UK seem to get job offers very early on but is that also the case with people coming from the US?
