    I graduate in May and I am currently completing an application job for a graduate job starting in September. In between this time i will be going to USA.

    There is a section that asks to state anything that will 'aid you application' - is it ok to say that I will be travelling America for 4 weeks to experience a different culture'?

    Or does that sound cheesy lol? The company I am applying to are big in USA and this is why i think it might be good.


    I would definitively put it in your application, gives your application more personality and shows you're open to new experiences etc. But maybe phrase it a little differently, it sounds a bit cliché and and doesn't give the employer any idea of what you are like. I would explain more why you are going and what part of American culture you'd like to see.
