HOST EMPLOYERS


We provide your hotel or resort with WORK & TRAVEL STUDENTS ON THE J-1 VISA.

The J-1 Summer Work and Travel Program allows foreign university students to work and travel in the US for a maximum of four months during their official university break. The program allows students to experience American culture and daily life in the United States through temporary employment-based and travel-related activities.

HPUSA can help you find the right match for your company and support you as you build a strong team. We are committed to ensuring a successful program and a positive experience for everyone involved.  We screen all applicants for appropriate J-1 visa-compliant requirements and also vet Host Employers to ensure job offers qualify as appropriate temporary or seasonal employment. 

Your company receives personalized hands-on attention and service from the HPUSA team.
This is a free service to you, the employer.
