The location of the first job placement for Work and Travel USA 2011 - Warren, NH

First SWT 2011 placement

Just 7 workdays after the application deadline, first Work & Travel USA participants are placed with their American employers. Although it’s a record (cheers Steve!) it still goes to show two things:

1. Real programs (not some lists of addresses) work
2. It pays to apply early

Find a copy the Job Placement below. Warren, NH is near this placement, for which you can still apply: 6 positions in an Amusement Park – Apply before Feb. 18th and economists among you will find interesting that just half way between these two places is Bretton Woods.
