Summer Job Hunting Tips

Remember this is a cultural exchange program.  Your job should resemble seasonal work, which means it should be a job or location that requires summer staff because it will be busier.  Of course you can’t work in locations that may be deemed as safety concerns.

Always be clear to employers that you are participating on the Work and Travel Program sponsored by a Department of State recognised Sponsoring Agency.  You can tell an employer that your US Sponsor is authorized by the US Government to issue the necessary documentation for you to obtain a J1 visa, which allows you to work legally in the US for up to 4 months.

What types of Jobs can I work?

The most popular types of work usually are within hospitality, working in bars, restaurants or coffee shops in America.   Hotels and Resorts are also very popular.

Some people like to work in Supermarkets, with a traditional 9-5 or a shift pattern.  Others have found that Lifeguard Jobs, or sailing instructors, are the best for them.  These involve spending all day every day in the beautiful outdoors in America.

Whichever you choose, we’re here to help you.
