If you have dreams of heading off to the US for the summer of a lifetime, you’ll need to fill those forms out now – USIT, the leading Irish provider of overseas work and travel programmes, has announced its first round cut-off dates for summer 2023 J1 applications.
Those intending to leave in May will need to apply for their J1 by January 31st with a February 28th deadline set for those looking to depart in June.
USIT will be hosting an in-person information session at UCC on Tuesday, January 17th at The Shtepps, Hub Building from 1pm-3pm.
Those unable to attend the in-person info session should sign up for the next virtual J1 presentation which takes place on January 17th at 5.30pm.
The US Embassy has appointment dates set for as early as late January enabling students to have their J1 secured earlier than ever before.
The USIT jobs hub already has over 900 jobs available in US locations; Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, New York, Boston, resorts such as Nantucket, Myrtle Beach, Ocean City, and more.
“We really can’t stress enough how important it is for students to apply for their J1 by the end of January in order to secure a May departure date and make the most of their summer this year,” said CEO of USIT, Vicki Cunningham.
“This is just one step we’ve taken to ensure we offer students the most streamlined process possible to obtain their J1 visa this Summer and compete with the growing demand for the J1 programme.”
