    I have a friend who moved here about 5 years ago from Canada, and is looking to get a job. He doesn't have a social security number though, so I was wondering if there was a way for him to get a job without one? I'm not really too knowledgable on this type of stuff. I know his dad works, but no one else in his family can I believe.

    I'm kind of confused here. According to my friend, he's here legally, but not for work. Something about a H-4 Visa. His dad has a H-1 Visa. His dad has a SSN, and my friend has a tax-payer ID. Anyone have experience with this kind of thing?

    I had some cousins from Brazil that were able to get a job right when they came to the US, but the situation may be different.

    He has a tax-payer ID? Legal in the US? Then he can work.

    Otherwise he has to apply for a SSN or a work visa, and I'm not sure work visas are allowed unless it's a certain level of professional job. At least, that's the only ones I've ever been involved with.

    Need a work visa or no workie.

    We had an employee who had a work Visa and it expired and away they had to go.

    Tax payment ID and here legally doesn't mean you can work... just means you need to pay taxes if any apply to you.

    He's working at a Quizno's getting paid in cash right now, but he wants to find a different job. He's probably looking for just any normal type jobs such as cashier or something like that. Can my friend get a work visa though? He's in his 2nd year of college, and I'm not too sure if he can get one.

    Somewhat, but not too much. He just said that he can't work, but I'm not sure how much he actually looked into it. It's strange that the only one allowed to work in his family is his dad, which would have to support his whole family with just his job.
