We’re here to ensure you and your participants have a successful season. To help you in this effort, below are links to important resources such as our Employer Knowledge Base, and Placement Agreement Form.

Employer Knowledge Base
We pride ourselves on the level of service we provide to employers and students before, during, and after the CIEE Work & Travel USA program. This includes providing you and your staff with resources and information on the essentials, including health insurance, SEVIS registration and student preparation. If you cannot find the information you are looking for here, please contact CIEE.

CIEE Placement Agreement Form

If you have identified a student you want to hire, please provide them with a CIEE Placement Agreement Form. They will need this form in order to apply for their J-1 visa.

We recommend that you complete the form electronically – you can save your work for future use. Then print and sign the form and send it to your student worker. Please note that all job offers must be approved by CIEE. CIEE will contact you at a later time to confirm that the job offer is valid.
