About Me !

Hello Amigos, 

 

 

I welcome you all to join me on this amazing journey of a US Immigrant, which I have taken up to share my experiences as a US Immigrant,  document them, and simplify the struggling inroads for most of the new US immigrants like me!

But before taking you up with all my insightful experience, let me first run you through a profile with whom you are going to march on this beautiful journey & who started this blog – theusimmigrant.com

Surprise! Surprise! That’s Me ..haha. I know that was more than childish behavior with a dinosaur times joke 🙂

So on a serious note, I am Rahul. To start with – academically I hold an MBA Masters degree in IT Business Management, Master’s Degree from a very well-known University. They call it ‘Oxford of the East’, but I know it as ‘Symbiosis International University’, India.

Professionally, I have tried my luck for the past 15 years in Technology Sales with Global IT Giants like IBM, Cisco, Dell Technologies, EMC Storage Systems & Veeam Software. Started my professional journey as an Individual Contributor to lead the teams with a  Sales leadership role for driving businesses across various geographies worldwide. So far it’s going pretty amazing. Woohooo 🙂

My Journey and Struggles!

A couple of years ago, I moved to the United States for work and was immediately faced with lots of challenges as an early-day struggler. 

Before landing, challenges like understanding different types of US visas, navigating the visa processing, dealing with the multitude of documents required, and enduring the visa interview process, I had a lot of questions.

Once I arrived, the struggles continued. I needed to find a place to live, apply for a driver’s license, buy a car, apply for a Social Security Number (SSN), open bank accounts to satisfy my financial needs & comfortably survive in the United States, & the list goes on. 

These hurdles made my early days as a new immigrant quite turbulent.

The lack of clear, concise, and accessible information added to my frustration. The overwhelming amount of scattered resources and the complexity of the processes made me feel lost and stressed. 

I realized that many other new immigrants must be facing similar challenges and experiencing the same sense of uncertainty and confusion.

This realization inspired me to start this blog – theusimmigrant.com. With the help of this blog, my goal is to help new US immigrants like me, streamline & simplify their early days in the United States.

I want to provide a comprehensive informative platform to answer all their “What’s” and “How-to’s” questions to survive in their early struggling days in the States. 

By sharing my experiences and insights, I aim to help newcomers take control of their journey, reduce their stress, and smoothen their transition into the United States as new US Immigrants.

 

Why did I start this Blog?

When I first moved to the US, I wished there was a single source of information to guide me through the processes. 

This blog is my way of filling that gap. 

I cover a wide range of topics, from visa applications and document preparation to finding houses/apartments to stay, getting a driver’s license, setting up bank accounts, purchasing a car, applying for SSN, how to improve my Credit Score as a beginner, the list is never-ending.

By detailing each step and offering practical advice, I hope to empower new immigrants to navigate these challenges with confidence. 

My mission is to make their journey less daunting and more manageable. 

Whether you are in the planning stages of your move or have just arrived in the US, this blog is here to support you in every step of the way.

Let’s navigate this journey together to make your transition to the US as smooth as possible
