It doesn't really matter, I think the position of a waiter/bus person in cafe, a worker in a hotel or something like that suits me best. The jobs for students are generally limited to cafes/restaurants (waiters/kitchen assistants/bussers), hotels (desk clerks), pools and beaches (lifeguards), resort areas and amusement parks (ticket sellers/operators/etc). The important part for me is communicating with people and improving my language skills. Some rules apply to the jobs available for me as for a WaT participant: Participants may not engage in employment that displaces U.S. workers Participants may only work for employers whose staffing need is seasonal/temporary in nature Participants may not work for employers who have experienced layoffs within the last 120 days Participants may not work for employers who have workers on strike/lockout The prohibited jobs are: I reckon it may be so that seasonal workers are not really needed there in KY or TN, which is not a problem in California, NYC or other places with a lot more tourists. But I'm not sure though, I think it shouldn't be a problem to find a position in some cafe? Well, I'm completely deaf, insensible and ignorant when it comes to music. Of any sort ( : though I like the general features of country music. Thanks for the tip. I'll ask the Texan at my university of what he thinks of it. Of course, when I'd asked his advice on the best place to visit and live, he immediately told me Texas is the best (( : Anyway, considering all the places mentioned here - in your opinion, would it be difficult for a student to find a work there (within the limits of my program) and unusual for an employer to get a foreigner seeking a job? Do they take it normally or prefer to have locals for a longer period of time?
