Work America: What we can do for YOU!
Posted on 12 December 2012
Students, this one’s for you! Swap your BA for NY, CA, MA, MD, SC…you’ve got a whole 50 states to choose from! Work for up to 4 months in the USA this summer, for a university break like no other! We break down why BUNAC is your perfect partner to head Stateside!
Help with obtaining your J1 Visa: your golden ticket to being able to work in the states! The only flexible working visa about, the J1, is only available to full-time university students and only through a company such as BUNAC. Our Work America team will guide you through every step, from sending you the forms to fill in and checking they’re correct, booking your interview at the American embassy and sending your documents on to them. Badda bing, badda boom!
Job Zone: Securing work can be difficult without proper resources, which is why BUNAC’s Job Zone is the perfect partner. We regularly update the Job Zone with vacancies from companies all over the USA, and it’s exclusive to BUNAC, meaning competition for jobs will only be with your fellow BUNACers! Getting your job sorted before you leave is certainly a weight off your shoulders, but many students still go over with their CV in hand and go directly to the source to find their job.
Accommodation help: Many employers in the Job Zone offer accommodation, making it a quick and easy way to find work and a place to stay. For the rest of you, our team in the UK and in the States can suggest the best places to look.
Improve your CV: While we help you turn your British CV into an American resume can help you prep your “resume” to find work in the USA, once you return, your CV will be bursting with new travel, life and work experiences, making an excellent talking-point in interviews and helping you stand out from the crowd.
Full support: With support for the full 4 months you’re in the USA including 24/7 emergency contact, as well as our Work America team on the ground here in the UK, you can sit back, relax and enjoy the ride knowing we’ve got your back.
Work wherever you want: Work America allows you to find you own job anywhere in the USA, so with a little planning, and ambition, you can work and explore America without breaking the bank. From city-slicking to beach-bumming, nowhere’s off limits!
Travel: Once your 4 months of working are up, you have up to 30 days to go ‘surfin’ USA!’ Get out and see the iconic sites from coast to coast. In New York? Get into the “Empire State of mind” by visiting Rockafeller Centre or the Statue of Liberty. Heading westwards? San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge or Arizona’s Grand Canyon will surely take your breath away. Hit the road, there’s a whoooole lotta country to explore!
