CIEE Work & Travel USA is the longest-running program of its kind, and there’s a reason why we sponsor more participants than any other organization. Whether you’re a visiting student or an employer, CIEE delivers unmatched support and the best international exchange experiences.

Finding a seasonal job, hiring, obtaining a visa, getting ready for the trip, dealing with taxes and paychecks, complying with regulations – a work and travel experience can be complicated. It doesn’t have to be. And with CIEE Work & Travel USA, it isn’t.

Thorough Preparation

We take the time to make sure every student is ready for his or her cultural exchange experience, months ahead of departure. We walk them through the process with clear instruction and assistance for everything from obtaining a visa to travel advice. There’s also an in-depth online orientation about living and working in the United States.
