J1 Summer Work & Travel is intended for “Seasonal Work”. In this case, these are jobs that are created in summer months due to increased travel and extra demand in that area brought about by the season.
If you’re unsure or have a job, please let us know and we’ll try to verify wether it qualifies for the program.
There are locations and roles that are deemed unfit for a seasonal role and won’t be approved by our visa sponsors.
Camp Counsellor Jobs (* see USA Summer Camp for more info here*). This requires a different version of this J1 visa.
There is a huge range of J1 summer jobs on offer in America through USA Summer Jobs. Just make sure that the jobs you’re after are in an area that has an increase in trade in the Summer (seasonal) months.
After you apply to USA Summer Jobs, you’ll receive our “cheat sheet” of jobs we’ve approved in the past. So if they are of interest, go right ahead and make an application to those Employers!
