Need a job!!

I'm currently living in England and working as an IT Project Manager. Does anybody know of any companies that have need of my skills in the US and could sponsor me on a greencard working visa? I'm desperate to get away from my country of birth as its being strangled by red tape and bureaucracy at every turn.

If you don't have your PMP certification yet, that will be a big boost to your search. Check out the cert exam from Project Management Institute (PMI) using Google or whatever.

We use PRINCE2 for project management here. I'm guessing its the same thing. Principles, processes, documentation management etc.?

Yes, PRINCE2 is similar though I'm not sure if its different methodology on the same idea or is actually the same methodology. I doubt the latter. Focus here in the States has largely been PMP, but Monster.com and other job boards should be a focus if they aren't already.

We call them corners here. Good luck with the job hunting.

Ah... now... over here, in the biking world, corners are what you get at junctions. Bends are what you get on a flowing road like Deals Gap.

I think "Twisties" is more universal.
