Once your paper work and second payment are received you'll get access to Interexchange's online job database where you will find jobs all across the US. These jobs are pre-vetted and ready to be filled by J1 applicants.
Throughout the season InterExchange will offer virtual job events when you can interview with US employers over Skype. Make sure to enter a valid Skype address when applying!
An in person job fair will be held in Dublin in January. You will be invited to interview with US employers in person and in some cases may be offered a job on the day!
You can also search independently for your perfect J1 job. You can try searching online through job hunting websites or through word of mouth from family or friends who have been on a j1 before. If you secure a job yourself you will need to get it vetted by InterExchange, see your online account for further details.
