Default Tourism graduate looking to relocate to USA....

Hi everyone,

I am 23 and a tourism graduate looking to work in the USA for at least 6 months. I've had the opportunity to work at Universal Studios, Florida, for 3months in the summer 2007. I have also done cabin crew. I had a great time doing both, but I really want to get into a hotel role or something customer service orientated in the USA. Some of my friends have married and relocated out there, but I am too young, free and single for that! Does anyone know of any legit agencies or at least a platform for me to start looking. I have researched tirelessly online at individual hotels but of course many have vacancies for US citizens. I know the process can be long but I really want to explore out there and possibly start a career abroad!

Any help will be greatly appreciated

Welcome to BE.

Take a read through this...if you fit into any of the categories you may have a chance of moving to the US. Good luck.

I doubt very much such jobs are restricted to US Citizens.

When did you graduate?

If it was recently, then look up the J1...other wise go and study for a masters or realistically if you don't want to go down the match.com route forget about it for the near future, till you've either got yourself a lot of experience or niche company knowledge in an outfit that would consider transferring you to the US.

What work-authorized visa did you have that enabled you to work in the US? Or were you working illegally?
