THE PROCEDURE OF “WORK AND TRAVEL USA” PROGRAM:

  • Interview to check your capability of English. You will know your result the same day.
  • Sign the contract and pay first installment in 7 days and  bring all necessary documents.
  • Self placed program participants must bring job agreement signed by an employer and a student and to pay the rest fee of the program. In 3-4 weeks period our partners in the USA confirm the employer. If your employer is not approved* you can: 1) Ask for the employer to contact our partner in the USA; 2) Bring new job agreement; 3) Change your program to Job Placed; 4) Terminate the participation in the program. In 3 weeks after job agreement confirmation you get a DS-2019 form (required for J-1 work visa).

IMPORTANT: *Sponsor may not confirm employer mostly for these reasons: they can’t reach him; your employer is a recruitment agency; your employer does not confirm that is hiring you or does not confirm some contact details.

  • Job Placed program participants receive their job agreement online or in a job fair. When you receive a specific job offer you need to sign it and pay the rest of the program fee. After signing the contract in 3 weeks period you receive a DS-2019 form.
