    The only way to get a social security number in the U.S.A. is to obviously apply for U.S. legal residency. You can also apply for a work VISA. The employers do not give you social security numbers -- they can't hire you until you have established a legal residence or work visa. You would need to contact USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services).
