  • [QUOTE=sven][QUOTE=eemamedo]And trust me on how hard it is to get a job. I have graduated with honors from University of Houston and I have two internships and I still can’t land a job. Imagine, how hard will it be for her, She is doing her internship with pretty big company in Chicago so that will definitely be a plus on her resume but the…[Read more]

  • [QUOTE=Esprit]I really don’t wish to be pickybut I wish the op would at least make some effort to make the thread title atleast a little grammatical. The University of Houston must be curling its toesin embarrassment. Moving to Brazil for Engineer √¢‚Ǩ‚Äú what does that actually mean? [/QUOTE]Haha mate I have noticed that today morning when I hav…[Read more]

  • [QUOTE=eemamedo][QUOTE=Steven][QUOTE=eemamedo]I think that is the main reason why I am planning to move to Brazil. I came here on student visa and it’s ridiculously hard (almost impossible) to find a job that will sponsor me for work visa. Even if it does, moving my gf to the USA will be even harder (since she will graduate from Brazilian…[Read more]

  • [QUOTE=WilliButz]Apart of mindset, correct documents (RNE, CTPS, CPF) are an issue.Companys avoid sponsoring work visas because it is a lot of work.Being abroad, you can only start the permanent visa process if you are already married. This is the fastest way to get your docs done in Brasil.Being in Brasil, apart of permanent visa based on marrige…[Read more]

  • [QUOTE=shinrai]Good on you for thinking about coming down here while you’re young. Be aware that everything is a total pain in the rear end down here. However it builds character and experience. I have to ask: Is English your first language? Your skin color also greatly affects how people treat you and what your salary will be. Keep that in mind.…[Read more]

  • [QUOTE=jennerjcruz]Think out of the box. There are lots of losers in this forum. Don’t let them let you down. Of course some jobs will be beyond your reach without a CREA registration, but there is a huge services sector filled with unprepared professionals. You can easily find a niche for yourself. I think you can make from R$5,000 to R$15,000 a…[Read more]

  • [QUOTE=Steven]I think that Shinrai is giving you some good advice. When you said that you were coming from Houston, my ears perked up thinking that you were a petroleum engineer – always in demand in Brazil. But electrical engineers are less in need. As noted, for a guy with one year experience you might be looking at R$5K per month, maybe a…[Read more]

  • [QUOTE=3casas]your engineering credentials from the US need to be approved by the engineering association here (CREA). marriage will not fix that. there are some threads here where people have gotten their credentials transferred but if i undestand correctly it is $$$ and takes a long time, do a search for CREA using the search function…[Read more]

  • [QUOTE=WilliButz]Why should they hire you?Pros: qualification, speaks english, lack of engineersCons:No Portuguese, no work documents, no work experience.Eliminate the negative aspects.[/QUOTE]Again, I will be able to learn enough Portuguese so I can talk to people and communicate around. Work documents? Getting married should be able to fix that…[Read more]

  • Also, I have been told two different things… Some people telling me that it’s easier to find a job when I am already in Brazil. Others keep telling to apply online etc. I tried applying online but unless it’s international company, the application form requires different identification forms.

  • Thank you. What is the good place for electrical engineers? Except, Sao Paulo (mainly because it is way too expensive to live while I am looking for a job). Fo

  • Hey, thank you for the reply. Since, I’m serious about it, I started starting Portuguese. I know I have a long way to go till I get to a good level. Do I have to take any special exams when I will be looking for engineering position? I have taken Fundamentals of Engineering exam in Houston but I don’t know if it is useful for Brazil.My gf is also…[Read more]

  • Hello everybody,This is my first post on this website and I hope not the last one. I have just graduated University of Houston majoring in Electrical Engineering. I have had two internships and plan to work here in the US for about a year. My gf is from Brazil and she lives in Vitoria, ES. I am very interested in moving to Brazil. We have talked…[Read more]
