Anybody going to the USA to work for the summer needs a J1 Visa - it opens up a world of possibilities!
In order to get your J1 Visa you need to go through what's called a "Legally Designated Sponsor". IST Plus works with CIEE in the USA to get your job approved and provide you with the legal sponsorship you need to apply for the visa at your local US Embassy.
We're there to help you every step of the way - from arranging your visa paperwork to guidance on getting the visa interview - and of course once you're in the USA you know you've got a whole team of experienced staff there to help you when you need it!
We've got jobs in Themeparks, ride assistants (for those who like rollercoasters!), hotels, beach jobs, jobs on the lake - you name it!
