If I join the program with other friends, can we opt for the same city?

Very employer has different conditions: number of vacancies, positions, availabilities… We cannot guarantee same conditions for every applicant. We must always take into account levels of English and aptitudes.
If you have been selected for an employer you should accept the offer even if your friends have not been selected. If you decide to reject the offer, it will be considered as voluntary retirement and the penalty specified in the Agreement Terms and Conditions of the program and its Annex will be applied to your contract.

Should we look for our own accommodation?

There are many employers who offer accommodation. In the case that accommodation is not included, we will help you on the process: both us and the employer.

You also have a phone number available the 24 hours in the United States.

Would I be assigned with the workplace of my preference?

Unfortunately, we are not able to guarantee a specific placement. You can sign up with the Employer of your choice to give a personal or telephone interview as long as they have available positions to meet eligibility requirements directly with the company. If you are among the registered applicants, you will have more chances of being able to choose which employer to interview you, but we cannot ensure that the employer choose you in the first place.

Do I need an advanced level of English to participate in the program Work and travel in the USA?

You need to have a level that allows you to communicate in English. You will work in many cases interacting with people whose first and only language is English. The level of English is directly related to the position that each person will apply for.

Do not worry because everyone approves. We will help you so you can prepare the interview and seemed to have more level than the one you really have.

I do have an English language certification, but I don’t know how valid it might be. Would this be enough or I have to validate it in some way?

To prove your level of English, an interview via Skype with an institution recognized by the US government would be sufficient. After this step you will receive a score from 1 to 5.

Some applicants might chose to extend their stay as the official period for the working visa expires.

Teachers are often quite sympathetic to these situations as they support students so that they can live this type of experience. "In 98% of cases the test dates forward". Keep in mind that you are proposing that you forward a test with 6 months in advance.
