Our Guaranteed Job Programme

We have the largest pool of J1 jobs from San Diego to Chicago to New York and everywhere in between. All J1ers must have an approved job before flying out so, take the hassle out of finding a job in the US with the help of our J1 team. We guarantee you a job if you want it. Here’s how we do it:

J1 Hiring Fairs

Come along to one of our J1 Hiring Fairs throughout the year and we’ll set you up with face-to-face interviews with US employers. You get the opportunity to chat with your new employer, find out what the company is all about and ask lots of questions.

The J1 Team

We have a whole team of J1 masters to find you that summer job of dreams. We’re proud to say we have guided over 100,000 J1ers stateside since 1961.

Working in the US

Love every minute of your J1, especially your summer job because it’s the perfect way to know your new city. Our J1 team provide jobs in bars, restaurants, café, theme parks and the service industry in general, so you’ll get to meet lots of Americans.

You’ll love the tipping culture in the US! The harder the work, the more you earn. Remember to use that famous Irish charm.
