Currently I am working in Hong Kong as a Production Planner at Avnet but what I really hope to do is to get transfer or to advance my career in U.S. about 2-3 years from right now. Is my idea relatvent?

Please input your advise about how my career path will lead to, thanks!

It all depends in your inmigration status and if u can legally work in the US. The working visas are in high demand and very hard to get here in florida. I have seen a lot of job opportunities for sigama six black belts, if u can get the right sponsor and experience you should do fine.

I graduated from The University of Florida with an Industrial and Systems Engineering. As an international Student I had to get a company to sponsor me so that I could stay working in the U.S. Fortunately General Electric hired me and trained me in Six Sigma (Green Belt). So, it is just a matter of searching for the companies that look for your background and applying and passing all their interview process since it is really competitive specially since Americans give priority to americans and afterward to an inmigrant.
However, with your background I am pretty sure you have a great advantage over most americans.
Good Luck!
