Hi! I am student from Eastern Europe. The next year I am going to get J-1 visa to the USA and go here for a summer to work in services sector. Now im looking for the right city. I am interested in Denver cause a few other russian\east-europian J-1 students go there, thats why there is not so much (as far as I know) competition from their side. I am inquiring about the possibilities of getting job\second job for summer in services sector or somewhere that doesn't require special skills. How is it developed in Denver? Are there enough vacations in services sector (busser, shop assistant, cashier etc.) in the summer? The next point is that I don't have driver license. Would it be possible to get to a job on a bicycle? Any other opinions about such situation? Sorry for possible bad English. Thanks beforehand.

Privet takenname,

Denver is getting a bit more popular for such 'international J-1 program for jobs' since most of the bigger cities are often known to be participating in such programs. Obviously, Denver is not the capitol of the capital vacation spot of the world but many often go via the hospitality route. Again, there are many places that one can work in, but often times they end up - for obvious reasons - in the downtown area. Given the state of the economy, however, that may not be as easy as many have done so in years past. Our unemployment numbers, like the rest of the county, is growing.

Many places have good (public / bus ) transportation but many areas do not not and take you a long time to get to/from the places that you need to go. The place where you get work should be near public transportation and then you can find places around these areas.

Being closer to down town, however, is more expensive so it will take some time in arranging work, living, and public transportation. Are you comming by yourself or with a group. If with a group you can rent & share to reduce the costs of the rent per person and still be in a more central area.

and your English is pretty good.

Good luck,
