A lot of companies, if not all, post jobs online. Google for jobs or job fairs for Chicago IL and see what you come up with.

Oh Sam! hey!
Welcome to the US!
You must have suffered alot till could reach, all I hope is that you like life here , people who've come from the middle east differ in their opinions, some went back months later, some stayed here and some found it awesome, it depends on the chances you get and on the way you choose. Trust yourself and think very well before any decision, try to find a job close to computer engineering then move on with others if not possible, although I find it difficult for you to work as an engineer here, but trust me, I'm sure you'll do it!
Take it easy all the time.

I expect it to be a life full of adventures, and you will like it. As Eliza said, take it easy all the time, and try to inform us later about how you find it
God bless you

Hi Sam,

I have no connections in Chicago, so I'm afraid I can't be of much help there. The only thing I can offer is ideas.

If you're looking for part-time work while you go to school, then usually restaurants or other retail stores are good options. Some smaller places may put signs out in the windows or still advertise in the paper. Both Target & Costco have stores in Chicago and I have heard they are good employers. They will be online. I have only been to Chicago once, but remember that the El was a pretty efficient mode of transportation, so you may not want to limit yourself to the downtown area. Although you'll want to be careful about what neighborhoods you go into. If I remember right there were some rather rough areas. Hopefully you have some friends or people there who can advise you on some things.

Remember too that large cities like Chicago are usually more expensive than surrounding areas. Both for living expenses and wages.

You may want to check at the University where you will be going to see if they have any job services for students, also.

That's wonderful news, Sam.

Hopefully they give you an employee discount, many do. :)

I have read where some CEO's(Chief Executive Officers) of companies started from the ground up in their companies. So perhaps this job will give you valuable experience that you can use after you finish your degree.
