It's the same as anywhere else in the U.S. You need an "Employment Authorization Document." Google will pull up lots of information on the process for you.

Thanks,
I know about US-I have a lot canadian friends who got this permit without any problem and they are working in US.
How about VI employers-will they hire somebody from Canada?
I know that employer has to be part of this process.

A company has to solicit employees first. Then if they can not fill those jobs and can prove to the state department that fact, then they can solicit outside the U.S.
The employer must then apply to bring you in under the H1B Visa program.
There are other ways, treaty investor, special skills, apprenticeship programs, etc. There are also jobs for people under NAFTA, example, if you are a nurse or doctor you can get a TN Visa with nothing more than a request by the employer and a copy of your certification. You can also become a student and possibley adjust status after you complete your training. But if you are looking for unskilled labor, thats, H1B. Try Marriot Corporation, they hire a lot of people from outside the United States to work here in STT. Good luck.

Then start by contacting some local companies and see if they are in the market for someone with your skills, if so, and they can not fill the positions, they can solicit through the state department for your services. You could also try Scotia Bank, they are a Canadian company who operates here. I am sure they employ accountants.
