Even with family in the US, it’s hard to get a visa/greencard for work.

Have you looked into second jobs where you are? Or taking in a boarder or two in one of your extra rooms?

I’m voicing what other PPs have already said.  The job market is insanely shitty right now.  2 out of 4 graduates get a job and out of those 2 only 1 will get a job in their field.  It’s such a shame.  My fiance is in plumbing and can’t find steady work with another person.  No one wants to hire him for anything more than $9 an hour.  How would that pay any bills?  He decided to open up his own plumbing business, but it takes time, effort, and a lot of patience (money helps too).

I would look into moving to places where you are sure you can work.  The US is not the land of opportunity right now.  However, if you are sure you will be able to work here or at least go to school here, c’mon over.  

Just brush up on your Italian:

The Central Intelligence Agency is hiring qualified and experienced Language Instructors of Arabic, Chinese/Mandarin, Dari/Pashto, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Persian (Farsi), Portuguese, Serbo-Croatian, Spanish and Turkish to work in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.”

@MrsManni:  Are background checks part of the hiring process for social workers?  That could be yet another obstacle.

Would you consider the UK?  English-speaking, so you’re sorted there.  UK doesn’t have to mean big city/London/just England either.  There are some fantastic places where you could live, go forward in your career as well as be in a fantastic place to raise a family.  Also, as it’s part of the EU, it makes paperwork a lot easier!
