If you haven't already done so, I'd recommend joining your local PMI chapter as that would be a good complement to locating opportunities online via LinkedIn and Indeed.
Is it possible to join a PMI chapter different from your country of residence? What about being part of two different chapters?
As someone who belonged to two "neighbouring" chapters over the last seventeen years, I can attest to Kiron's comment about your ability to fully participate. Of course, your interest is in networking which will have to be virtual unless you intend on visiting Utah occasionally. You may find other Utah organizations that offer networking opportunities: Chamber of Commerce, Rotarian, Toastmasters, ...
Alba, ironically I've been exploring the Salt Lake area more now that my wife has agreed to at least traveling there later this year and seeing the city (I've been talking about wanting to move to SLT for years).
Echoing all other comments, plus there are some LinkedIn groups for networking and jobs. Through those I've connected with recruiters and other PM's. I've also browsed MeetUp for other networking opportunities. Good luck!
I think that one of your biggest challenges will be finding a company that will sponsor your visa. During the last years for the organizations is more difficult and expensive to show that "there isn't an USA citizen or resident that can perform the job".
While in LinkedIn you will find most of the openings in Utah, as per my own experience (and hope that yours are different) there is always the same question "Will you need now or in a future sponsorship to work in the country that you are applying"?
I will send a few companies by inbox that I saw that I hiring nowadays, however, without the visa...not sure.
Good Luck and keep me posted.
Yes, you're right about the VISA question. I found applications rejected even a few hours after applying. I'm sure they have a pre-set filtering out anyone choosing that they need a visa sponsorship. Still, I'm optimistic and hopeful that some bigger companies will not find troublesome hiring foreign talent. Thank you for your suggestions!
I remember working as a resource manager for the NY Health Information Exchange project. I had little to no trouble getting TN visas for the developers. Getting my L1 on the other hand, was a lot more involved (and expensive), even though it's an intra-company visa.
