Hi! I'm student from Russia, and I'm going to the USA this summer (Work and Travel)
But I can't find a job offer yet.
Who can help me in this question?
I have to get a job offer, without this paper I can't get visa J-1...
Who can advice employers?
It's should be service job.

Thanks for posts!

I really don't want to put you down but the economy is really really bad now. Stay at your country.

Thanks for your opinions!
But I've already paid for the program.
And they don't return my money if I will give up.

Maybe now the situation is bad in the economy in USA?
In the summer should be a lot better, I'm sure!

I'm not too familiar with how the Work and Travel program operates but am I correct in remembering that if you pay them an extra fee they'll actually find you a job? That might be the way to go. Otherwise you may have better luck posting in the CA state forum. It's a great opportunity which I know thousands of students (US students too) participate in every year and I hope it works out for you. Good luck!

You're kidding yourself if you think that the economy is going to turn around in three months.

I'm not sure what you mean by "mover" job but maybe you're referring to "seasonal employment"?

Again, doesn't the Work and Travel organization help find you a position if you pay an additional fee? To find seasonal job opportunities in CA you should google, "seasonal jobs CA". I'd further suggest that rather than concentrating on California you expand your search and google, "seasonal jobs US". There are such job openings throughout the US, it's a vast country and you may be self-limiting your opportunities by focusing on just one state. Do your homework! And again, good luck!

Yes, W&T help, if I pay additional fee. But I want to find job without their "help".
Thank you! I want to California, but job offer may be from other states)
Today I sent about 50 e-mails, hunting in process...
