    Hey, it's been my dream to go to the land of the free (my ass :p: ) and I'd like it to come true this summer. Ideally, I'd go to California or the East Coast. I'd like to work for a few weeks and then travel a bit for the earned money. CampAmerica is a no-no cause I don't like kids.:nah: I found WorkAmerica on BUTAC and it looks pretty good. They say that I could do almost any kind of work I'd want. I'd prefer to work as a sales assistant in a shop or maybe something related to my uni course (Politics).

    So, my questions to people who have done it or are going to do something like that: how hard is it to find a job? How much ££ do you need? How difficult and stressful is the whole application process? What 'bout accommodation?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey,

    Yeah Work america is pretty ideal then. It is a programme that gives you a list of jobs in the usa, help with visa and info pack for going. There are jobs all over, from what i know a lot of the jobs are in the smaller places ie not NY or LA but places like boston, new hampshire, north colarado etc. The job booklet gives you a list of jobs, with info on money, accomodation etc. Some of the jobs provide free accomodation, others dont. Up yo you what you want to apply for. Pay is good, enough to save to go traveling (thats the best part - i traveled east coast last year, doing west this year . Bunac are good, give you a lot of advise and assistance. Defo worth a shout! Chekc out there website! x
