UT has 10 years of experience placing international students in entry-level, seasonal positions within the hospitality and tourism industries as well as in amusement parks, super markets, museums, swimming pools, and malls, etc. With having more than 1000 students every summer gives us great flexibility to meet the expectations of each employer. Employers use the Work & Travel Program year after year to find capable and motivated staff members who add diversity and a unique enthusiasm to the workplace.
This unique cultural exchange program provides employers with a reliable source of motivated seasonal employees, and it provides the students a chance to discover the people and culture of the USA while earning enough money to pay for their trip and support themselves throughout their stay.
Our Work & Travel Program Staff works closely with both participants and employers, ensuring a comprehensive understanding of both your needs and the participants interests and qualifications. Our employers range from major amusement parks and resorts to family owned inns and restaurants, and we have the experience and flexibility needed to address a wide range of staffing needs.
We conduct interviews throughout Europe and Asia before the student leaves his or her home country.
Our participants are sponsored by The Council on International Educational Exchanges (CIEE-www.ciee.org) to come to the US on a J-1 visa, which allows them to work legally for up to four months. Many employers find that our participants’ work dates fit in perfectly with their employment needs in the summer. Students arrive as early as early June and as late as mid July.
