I recently quit my job in the UK to educate myself more and try to find a job in non profit sector (database management, salesforce, data analysis, M&E). I've been volunteering my skills for a while now and decided to apply to a few jobs to see what happens.
One organisation from NYC really liked me and wants a phone interview and upon it being successful face to face interview.
In my CV I clearly stated that my native language is not English (despite full professional proficiency in English) and that I am currently in South America for a volunteer placement.
I have a US B2 tourist visa, but since I have no address in my CV I didn't mention I will need a working visa.
I'm trying to be fair but at the same time to see how far can I go.
My question is two-fold.
Will it be easier to get a US working visa with a non-profit behind me that offered me a position and are willing to help?
When should I mention my situation (non-US citizen, no working visa)? Should it be during the phone interview, or should I keep it about my skills, see if they think I am a good fit and let them decide later if I'm worth the trouble of obtaining the visa?
