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

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:

  • hotel receptionist
  • housekeeping
  • kitchen work
  • hospitality
  • lifeguard
  • food server

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.

Customer Reviews

I could not have asked for more! The VisaPlace team are extremely professional, they know their stuff. They gave me great information, prepared my work visa application and then prepared me for the submission process. I was successful. Got my visa. 5 stars! I would give them 6 if I could.

This is not an exaggeration!!! I was truly impressed with the way VisaPlace consultants handled my case. The consultants- Emily, Lauren, Takunda and Lisa, took their time to explain to me in great deal how they were going to approach my case and how they would handle setbacks, if any. Their professionalism and knowledge of the law were superb. The minor setback that came up was quickly addressed by the team. The team constantly kept me updated on the progress/status of my application; they quickly responded to my questions/concerns. They had predicated my permanent residency to be processed within 6 -12, and Indeed it was processed and completed within 6 months. Based on my personal experience, Emily and Lauren's team are the best! They deserve 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!!

VisaPlace helped me sponsor my husband to become a Permanent Resident of Canada. They were extremely professional. Every step along the way was explained fully and expertly taken care of. The staff responded immediately to any questions and always handled our concerns fully, taking as much time as we needed to understand where we were at in the immigration process and what to expect next. I would recommend VisaPlace with no hesitation at all. I'm sure if we had tried to navigate the immigration process ourselves, it would have been much harder.
