It's illegal to work here with a J1 visa. You are permitted only to attend school with that visa type.

Actually it is fully legal to work in the USA over the summer as a student on the J1 visa. You can also undertake a paid internship on a J1 or paid training related to your field of study. You need to contact an agency who can process your visa application and advise you on what exactly you are eligible for. I went with WorkPlayUSA, they were really helpful and sorted it all out for me on my placement
