    I am looking for a job placement in your hotel for the summer of 2014. I am currently a student at Rutgers University and I am able to speak fluent English. I have been to this area before and I have grown to love it. This would be an amazing opportunity for me and I am waiting to hear from you.

      Hi Andrew, thank you for your comment. Unfortunately, I have two bad news for you. Partly, you are looking at examples of past placements (see the first post in the section) but more importantly, this program is available only to non-US nationals who are full-time students of recognized tertiary educational institutions outside the USA. It is an international exchange program based on the Fulbright-Hays Act and is run under the auspices of the US Department of State, not the Department of Labor.

Questions? Ask below :-) In English, please.
