Any recommendations on how to convert my international expertise into U.S. standards?
I held different positions and roles as PM, CEO, Sales and Marketing consultant... Outside of the U.S. and mainly in the Middle East. I recently moved to the U.S. and am studying to get my Master's in Analytics and Project Management.
I tried adding numbers and statistics in my CV, because I think some of those projects have been a true success and having that experience can add great value to the right companies. However, I am under the impression that employers do not seem to be interested in those and are more focusing on my recent experience since moving to the U.S.; which include mostly student jobs due to visa restrictions. I have done a few great projects in the U.S. too, but still not even close to what I have done before.
Any recommendations on how to convert my international expertise to U.S. standards if there is one?
The problem might be that they can not easily confirm your experience outside of the U.S.
I suggest that you get letters of recommendation from previous companies.
I also suggest an elite resume writing service like: http://resumewriters.club/jobs/How_Can_I_Get_A_Good_Job_With_No_Experience.html
I'm also curious about a good specific answer to this question.
JC Quek also made a good point: what is your visa type, because this matters to employers.
My suggestion is to increase your networking. Because persons hire persons, and more people you know, more chances to be hired. And maybe (just maybe) look for smaller companies, they have many things to be accomplished - the rates are lower, but this could bring you revenue and U.S. cases to share when searching for bigger contracts.
If you need further assistance on how to develop your networking, I can offer you my online services to create a strategy.
I would consider a foreign talent here. The question will be how US view your experiences and academic achievements.
Nevertheless, being the fact that you are studying in US now, holding a student pass (I suppose), people use you for professional job at student rate. I suppose you may do so if you are the recruiter.
On the other hand, if you hold an employment pass, and study as part time, I think your fair pay will be there.
How that convert can happens?
By training, say an accountant will go for conversion course.
By experience, just hope that you can do more assignment to build your "local experience" - it will be useful when you work as the full timer and hold employment pass in future.
