I am having trouble finding a job if you have any job openings or know of any please contact me at [email protected] thank you in advance Daniel Elder

Depending on what field you're working in you might encounter problems in finding a job here before you move.
You mention the scheduled date of moving will be in 1-2 years.
I advise you to start studying Finnish very hard and try to be so advanced in Finnish that by the time you come here you're able to communicate in Finnish.
That will majorly increase your chances of finding a job.

A tip from me: I advise you to buy an as expensive-as-you-can-afford car and own it from >6 (or is it 12?) months before you come here.

Once you are here, the savings will speak for themselves.

As for moving here, probably getting married in the US then appying to move here will drop the level of difficulty quite significantly and will also open up other benefits to you once you are here.

Some of the guys on this board who have already made the move will be able to provide you with useful shipping info and contacts.

Of course good planning is essential though.
