Title: NZ Uni Graduate
Post by: AdamG33 on June 23, 2010, 08:35:17 am
Hello everyone,

I first heard about the FSP listening to podcasts of Free Talk Live, probably around 4 years ago.  FTL changed my perspectives completely, and while I don't agree with everything they have to say all the time, I owe them a lot.

The FSP is a movement I want to be a part of.  I will graduate at the end of 2010 with a engineering (chemical & process) degree, and moving to NH in 2011 would be a dream come true.  Finding employment is my next big task. 

My question to you all is what major processing industries are located in NH?  Or does anyone know where I can get some sort of idea which companies operate in NH that I could apply for? 

Should probably also mention that I'm a New Zealander  :D

Kind of a weird answer I'm going to give you - but you could look at a list of chemical spills in New Hampshire since 1983 to give you an idea what kind of chemical manufacturing is going on up here:

Specifically,

  http://www.epa.gov/tri/tridata/current_data/basic/state/TRI_NH_v08.exe

The .exe is a self extracting .zip archive.  My virus checker didn't have any problems with it.  You could also take a look at TRI data for other States that border NH (Massachusetts, Maine, and Vermont) if you don't mind commuting to work a bit.  Here is a list of data for all States:

Given that you're a Kiwi, you might want to think about applying to Grad School in NH (at Dartmouth for example).  Having an advanced degree would make the immigration process easier.  And, I think having held a student visa and resided here for a couple years also informally helps.  Plus, you may meet a potential mate while in school and that could be a path to citizenship for you.
