“I’m good at what I do. I’m always on time, I never call in sick. My manager gave me great reviews. But now I can’t find a job. If someone would just agree to meet me, I know they would want to hire me. How do I get noticed?”
Whether you are a new U.S. citizen or a noncitizen with authorization to work in this country, you need to apply for a Social Security card and number in order to work in the United States.
While most American citizens now have Social Security cards issued at birth, a noncitizen applying for his or her first Social Security card or number must prove identity, age and citizenship.
