    Set goals. Created an online portfolio. Applied to couple of companies, received some rejections and offers.

    But one day, I get contacted by a recruiter (not because of my application, through my portfolio) and after interviews, received the offer.

    My visa was not guaranteed, there were other companies that offered me backup scenario but I took the risk and accepted the offer.

    Waited 3 months for visa. Approved a week ago! 2 more months left to start.

    So, finally I am relocating to Bay Area and joining Facebook as a Product Designer starting in October. I am extremely happy and excited!

      Congrats Rıza,

      I'm at a stage very similar to yours right now. I think I'll learn much from you :)

      Good luck there
