    Hi guys!
    Let me start by apologising for this thread just in case it's the exact duplicate of another.
    I am a full-time second year student in London and I recently found out about the US J-1 visa program where they give you a 4 month work and travel visa if you're a full-time student in the UK. I am interested in staying in L.A. for the duration (since I like big cities), but all I can find on-line are jobs in remote resorts or camps. Does anyone know any agencies or websites that recruit for this sort of thing? That would be of GREAT help and I would really appreciate it! Hell, if you live in London I'll buy you a drink! Again, apologies if the question has already been asked.

    Thanks!

    What type of jobs are you looking for?

    And J1 visa you can work for only 3months and the rest is a grace period (travel etc)
    Yep, I know about the grace period. I don't mind the job field as I am quite a fast learner and quick to adapt. My only request is that the job must be located in the city of L.A (or cities in L.A. such as Venice Beach, Hollywood, etc.) Do you know any agencies recruiting for this specific purpose?

    Is there any particular reason why it has to be in LA?

    You can check out indeed.com

    or look at Camp America/BUNCAC - email them to find out
    It is my desire to go there and see how the city feels. I'm planning to move there in the future. I have checked Camp America and Bunac, they only work with remote resorts/camps. I was curious if there is anyone who knows any UK based agencies/websites recruiting.

    Hi John

    Can we help at all? We work with camps in California. To do work and travel you have to be a student and then get sponsored to go over to the USA. It's difficult hence what people do to start off with is AmeriCamp first.

    Take care
