let go of even your longest held beliefs,
the only truth is in observation.

working in the EU can be difficult. you can apply for a schengen visa which can help, but it won't be easy.

if you just want in to the UK, there is a considerably easier process / visa called HSMP (Highly Skilled Migrant Program).

it's based on points and there are lots of calculators available to help give you guidance.

i have that one and it is great. it's good for 3 years (in the UK only) and i can do anything during that time (work for any company in the UK without sponsorship, go to school, do nothing, etc.). the most difficult thing is getting the banks to give you the paperwork the UK Home Office requires. i'd also highly recommend using a lawyer familiar with the process. i found one that does it on a flat-rate and was fantastic. i had my passport back with the stamp 2 days after we submitted paperwork. i've heard stories of people trying to do it themselves and it taking more than 6 months (there can be crazy levels of?bureaucracy?to navigate).

hope this helps!

Oops - I meant non EU citizen.

Being a US citizen doesn't give you the right to work in the EU and it can be harder to get work authorization than you might expect . . .
