    Hello! How many hours can I work per week? I need overtime everyday. Please answer me before I find another.

      Hi Nursultan, First of all you are in the section with examples of previous jobs from several programs and countries. It helps future applicants get an idea what placements they may expect. Read the first post in the category: http://www.apex-foundation.org/programs/jobs-placements/. The normal average is around 35 hours per week. Say, between 32 and 40. Expecting overtime every day is completely unrealistic. Employers have to pay 50% extra for overtime, and no business can afford 50% increase in the cost of labor without going bankrupt.
