Work and travel experts

Over 1 million happy travellers

Founded in 1950-something in the halls of Trinity College and UCD, our student forefathers knew one thing. That the way to explore and experience more – was to earn while you did it. We’ve been creating life-shaping work and travel experiences ever since. Whether you want to fund your summer in the US at camp or on a J1, bankroll your gap year with a working holiday, or use your degree to get ahead on a professional internship – USIT opens up a world of opportunities.

J1 jobs

Hundreds of J1 jobs

The countdown to your ultimate summer living and working in the States is on. We still have hundreds of J1 jobs available on our Job Hub, but this is the last chance to apply for J1 summer '24. FOMO is real - as are Irish summers spent at home. So don't miss out!

USA this way

All class of '23 grads

Graduated in 2023 and wondering what's next? The bridge between college and your career - put your CV on the map with our 1-year Grad USA program. You must enter the USA within 12 months of your grad cert - so if you have a September grad cert date, apply by this June to make sure you have enough time to get your application over the line.

Cool jobs

Canada winter hiring is open!

Parents, you may want to look away now... "Just quit your job and do it." Advice from Conor - fresh from the slopes working at Cypress Mountain and living in Vancouver. The good news is, we can help you land a new job in Canada! (Parents - back in the room). Video interviews for 4-6 month winter and ski jobs open in May, with interview slots filling up fast, so get your skates on.
