How can an Australian get a job in the USA?

I'm constantly amazed at the amount of traffic my immigration posts generate. I get at least one question a week from people who have found my blog through Google. I respond to every email and I'm more than happy to help, as I like the idea that I can demystify the process for some and help them avoid many of the mistakes I've made along the way. I'm going to make an effort to answer some of the more common questions I get starting with this post. A popular line of questioning relates to jobs and how difficult is it to get a job in the US, or if it is possible to get a job in the US from Australia. Before I start, I have to call out the image I selected for this post. It is part of a game we play at work when brainstorming called, "What would the world's laziest marketer do"? Generally the answer is either use the word smart in a product name or stick a picture of two hands shaking in front of a globe. It's our way of avoiding hackneyed and trite cliches. Unfortunately in this case, I couldn't think of anything better to use.
