1 Una pequeña introducción sobre los empleadores. En el año 2012 el Departamento de Estado de USA estableció nuevas regulaciones para el programa Work and Travel USA. Entre otras cosas, limitó los empleadores autorizados a recibir Work and Travellers. Ahora, sólo podrán recibir participantes aquellos empleadores que tengan un pico de demanda estacional de trabajadores, como es el caso de los centros de ski en invierno. Aquellos empleadores en zonas de calor (Hawaii, Miami) o grandes ciudades, no pueden recibir participantes ya que no tienen UNA SOLA temporada con pico de demanda, y ya reciben participantes en verano americano. No pueden recibir participantes 2 veces por año. Además de la ubicación, el Depto de Estado prohibió puestos en casas de familias, fábricas, casinos, nightclubs, puestos con salario totalmente a comisión u horario predominantemente nocturno. Por eso, la gran mayoría de los empleadores están ubicados en centros de ski, resorts invernales, hoteles de montaña. Los empleadores no son todos iguales. Algunas son opciones tipo centro de ski tradicional, otros son solo hosterías o spas de montaña. Algunos son centros grandes, otros más pequeños. Algunos ofrecen un salario más alto, otros alojamiento gratis o muy barato, algunos incluyen beneficios como el pase de ski, algunos te permiten terminar tu contrato el 5 de marzo, algunos exigen un contrato hasta el 1 de abril. Algunos ofrecen variedad de puestos, otros buscan solo chicos para housekeeping. Pero no existe el empleador perfecto: el que mejor te pague, esté mejor ubicado, te de el alojamiento y el pase gratis y te permita trabajar las horas que tu quieras. De la misma manera que todos los chicos que hacen el Work and Travel no son iguales: algunos tienen más experiencia, algunos mejor inglés, otros aprenden rápido, otros más lentamente, algunos son más simpáticos, otros menos. Algunos se esfuerzan, otros no tanto. De todas maneras, es importante que tengas en cuenta que este es un programa de intercambio cultural en la que el empleo es el medio que te permitirá solventar una temporada en USA, conociendo cultura, costumbres e idioma, objetivo principal del viaje. Y este objetivo lo podrás alcanzar con cualquiera de los empleadores. Por eso, vení a una charla, te contamos sobre cada uno de nuestros empleadores y te ayudamos a determinar los que más se ajusten a tu perfil. Teniendo en cuenta que nuestros empleadores contratarán solo la cantidad de estudiantes que permita que haya trabajo para todos, los cupos para entrevistarse con cada uno son limitados y se completarán por estricto orden de inscripción. Las ferias de trabajo serán en los meses de Junio, Julio y Agosto, y podrás participar tanto en Buenos Aires, Santiago, Montevideo o desde el interior de Argentina, Chile o Uruguay.
