Summer Jobs in the US for Foreign Nationals – Work in the US

By Casey May 3, 2019 4 min. read
Summer Jobs

Workers come to find jobs in the U.S. to improve their skills, their education level, travel in the U.S. and just to get a feel of the American life. Working abroad in the U.S. is also a wonderful way for individuals to spend a summer abroad or spend a gap year. There are ample opportunities for part-time or seasonal jobs in the United States, and working in the U.S. gives individuals time to explore the country, while supplementing travel expenses and gaining international work experience.

Summer Jobs in The USA fall into several categories: Summer Camp, Holiday Resort, Internship, H2B seasonal work. The summer camp option offers the chance to work a summer with kids on summer camp, then travel a bit after the season. This is a fantastic way to see America on a gap year. There are many internships open to international students but you need to be at Uni presently. The H2B Visa is a worker visa in the USA that allows organisations that have a repeated requirement for extra staffing on a seasonal basis which needs migrant workers to fill the jobs. This pretty much means any seasonal work but the employer needs to be a registered H2B Visa employer.

Summer Camp Counselor

Working the summer camps in North America is a very popular option. You get a quality start in a country where work is not easy to come by and then the chance to travel after the season.

If you’re intrigued by international travel and working with children and young adults appeals to you, there are few better positions available that combine both interests like camp counselor jobs abroad. Offering the opportunity to earn money while spending time outdoors educating children and teenagers in various settings, from the mountain wilderness to the ocean side beach, the young lives you will inevitably mold and the friends you will make along the way will make working as a camp counselor abroad an entirely unforgettable time.

On most kids camps there are two types of role; working with the kids directly and working behind the scenes to support the camp operations. Thousands of jobs are created each year on summer camps for specialist staff and willing workers with no specific experience.

Summer Holiday Resort

There are lots of different kinds of resort jobs in the summer. There are even companies that will provide you with a package of accommodation and support while you find work on the spot, this is riskier than getting work in advance. It is recommended you find a job before you get out there to best avoid having to come home after two weeks with no money. As a rule, the more difficult the job is, the more likely it is to be advertised out-with the resort. It’s tough to find PR jobs and bar work in summer resorts before you set off, but if you want to be a resort rep or you are a qualified chef then you will be able to secure a job in advance.

Some summer holiday resort jobs may include:

Summer Internship

If you’re considering internships in USA for international students, you’re in an ambitious group of students hungry for invaluable global experience. Gaining professional experience in the United States will undoubtedly boost your credentials in any field. Studying abroad or being an au pair isn’t the only way to intimately understand American culture. Internships for international students can provide the same cultural foundation as well as professional development.

In addition to managing the world’s largest economy, the U.S. controls one third of the world’s media, is home to several notable fashion labels, and runs a massive sports industry that trickles out throughout the world. When you think of some of the biggest hotel chains, American names like Hilton, Marriott, and Wyndham may come to mind. The fact is no matter what field you want to work in, you can find wonderful internships in the USA for international students in several world-renowned companies and organizations.

If you are not interested in an internship, but would like to learn about finding a job in the US as an international student, we can help..

H2B Visa Work

The H2B visa labor certification program establishes a means for U.S. non-agricultural employers who anticipate a shortage of domestic workers, to bring temporary nonimmigrant foreign workers into the U.S. H2B visa eligibility requires that the job and the U.S. employer’s need for the foreign worker be of a temporary nature. The need must be for one year or less and can be either a one-time occurrence, seasonal, peak load or intermittent. Temporary employment should not be confused with part-time employment which does not qualify for temporary (or permanent) labor certification.

Types of H2B visa jobs include: hospitality workers, hotels/motels, chefs, resorts and theme parks, ticket sales, cruise ships, construction workers, maintenance, janitorial, ski resorts, landscaping, golf courses, water parks, security, ride operators, restaurants and bars, warehouse, retail stores.

Our experience with the team at VisaPlace has been absolutely amazing. Special thank you to Nadia Bakhtiari whom we had the pleasure of partnering with. Nadia was attentive, empathetic, knowledgeable, professional, friendly and accessible. She provided guidance and kept us in the loop every step of the way. We were so impressed with the professionalism and exceptional client experience from VisaPlace that we partnered with them for both our PR application and our citizenship application. Thank you VisaPlace and thank you Nadia!

We were switched legal teams 3 times within our time there.( This was not our doing) We weren’t impressed at all with the service almost all the way through our experience. Our review would have been 1 star. The response time was awful. To get in contact with our attorney was so difficult. And not thorough. Almost at the end, when we were almost ready to file, we got switched again, but this time, we are thankful. The attorney we got then was Andrew Diamond. He is fantastic and the reason for the 5 star rating. This is his rating. He was phenomenal. Absolutely amazing and prompt with response time and very knowledgeable, thorough and so helpful. We couldn’t have asked for better. Thank you Andrew for all you did for us!

I’m satisfied with the expertise and professionalism with which my case was managed and handled. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the firm for its support. Although it has been a long process time due to Covid, Nadia has always been one of the first people to guide me step by step through the path during this stressful and unprecedented time. I strongly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking legal counsel.

I reached out to VisaPlace kind of on a whim, knowing that I needed to apply for permanent residency in order to stay with my spouse and our two cats. They were immediately and incredibly responsive, and almost instantly made me feel that I was dealing with professionals who cared about my case.

I reached out to them August last year, and today got the confirmation that my permanent residency has been approved. The people I worked with in VisaPlace stuck with me through the whole process, answering any questions and assuaging any fears that I had about the process, my application, or what I needed to do. Even when my anxiety made me snappy (I apologized immediately!) they handled my case and me with professionalism and compassion. Immigration is a stressful, scary process. I wanted professionals who knew the ins-and-outs so that I had the best chance of being able to come to Canada.

And now, I get to stay in Canada with my partner of nearly 10 years, and I couldn’t be happier. I would absolutely recommend this service to anyone who wants immigration help! A big thank you, especially, to Alejandra and Nadia for handling my case. I’m so lucky to have had your help!
