You can work in a seasonal job available in the US for up to 12 months - and you can move between jobs while you are there. Why not work at a ski resort for the winter, take a travel break, and then get a job near the beach for the summer?
A key benefit of this program is a pre-arranged job is not required. You can look for a job from home, or wait until you arrive in the US to look for work.
We can accept positions in a variety of fields and skill levels for 12 Month Work and Travel USA placements as long as the positions are for temporary employment. However, positions with a structured plan for training will still be more appropriate for J1 Internship or Trainee USA programs for which you may be eligible to apply.
Many students take advantage of being able to find their your own job gives it them the most flexibility in terms of location and type of job. Most students find a job before they depart for the U.S. Only students from select countries are allowed to find a job once they have arrived and Aussies and Kiwis are 2 of the lucky few!
You can use the resource centre to find available jobs across the US however it is important to remember that Internships are not permitted on the Work and Travel Program. If you wish to apply for an Internship please see the Internship USA program for more details.
