I was working in software as mainframe programmer for 5 yrs back in India. I did my MS (in india). Its been 3 yrs in USA and am on H4. Once DHs greencard is processed, planning to work on EAD. I would like your opinions/inputs on what are some of the employment options on EAD. I am sort of sick of s/w career and contemplating idea of changing career path. and to do something else. More relaxed and fun to do and relatively stress-free sort of.. Also already its about 3 yrs break and it could be couple of more. I am not sure how much it will work against me once I start searching. I was thinking of a teaching profession (more of kinder garden to primary level), but not sure how it works here. And apart from that I am not sure what options we ladies might have here. I have 2-3 yrs of time minimum and I want to sort of decide what path I want to take up and start equipping myself. I am more interested in service oriented/creative/decoration-designing options though I dont have professional education in them. Or can stick with s/w and read something I relative like better, something like SQL / informatica (I dont know and sort of interested in learning it). I know am sort of vague here, but not sure how to explain my case more. Could you ladies pls throw ur suggestions on various options and oppurtunities and possible courses that I might need to complete for it? Appreciate your help. -Sarada.
