Advice for a spouse looking to work here too!

Hello,

I'm a college educated woman whom ran a business for four years before leaving the US to follow my husbands opportunities here. However, I can't seem to find work here and we are considering going back to the states where we can have two incomes.

I have been applying to numerous jobs in an array of sectors for months now. Always, getting denied. It appears it's a prerequisite to have a working permit.....but in order to get a working permit you have to have a work contract! So what to you do?! Are there any companies that are more open to hiring without? Are there any spouses who have found a job that could give some advice or insight to how? Does anyone know of any job recruitment agencies?

ANY advice, tips, or information on anyone whom is in the same boat or was in my position and found work would be greatly appreciated!
