Hi Azadeh jan,

Please look into https://www.nipoc.org/ — they hold some great networking virtual events and you may be able to connect with some folks who had to face a similar transition from working in the Iranian market to now US, Canada, etc. We face a unique struggle and challenge so it's great to see others conquer this challenge and perhaps you can identify the path others have taken to pivot their careers when moving. You can also look into http://www.pandsociety.net/.

Since you have experience working with Nestle in Iran, it could be a good idea to visit the local offices of Nestle and introduce yourself and ask to talk to the marketing people to let them know that you are now in the US and interested in helping them here.

Also, I might help to go to the reference librarian at your local library to locate professional associations to which marketing professionals belong, so that you might be able to introduce yourself and get to know others in the marketing area in the Los Angeles area.

Here are some tips that might help:

You'll probably need to grab a degree in marketing to help you out. Try to take what classes you can in community college. You can also use the classes as an opportunity to network with the teachers and fellow students.
