The next step is finding employer willing to sponsor you and file paperwork

The easiest way is to choose a recruitment company to sponsor you. It's almost impossible to directly find an employer willing to do all the paperwork and hold a position for you for 1 year or more while your immigrant visa is being processed.

Recruiters include Avant Healthcare Professionals, O'Grady Peyton and PPUSA, for example, just to get you started on the research.

Obviously you'll need to take the IELTS as well.
