J1 Employer Spotlight: Last Chance In California & BBQ Bliss at Myrtle Beach

There’s no easy way to say this, but if you still haven’t done anything about your J1 summer job up until now, your dream is starting to slip away. We don’t want to start calling you ‘a Ross’, but…it’s time to get your act together!

Don’t end up like Ross…

We’ve already helped a ton of J1 students get their summer jobs sorted and they’re happily one US Embassy Interview away from being able to relax and look forward to their magical summer Stateside.

For those of you who’s job offer is no closer than Manchester United are to the Top 4, we’re running out of preferred employers via the J1 job listing and premium packages. All hope is not lost however, especially if you want to spend your J1 in California or Myrtle Beach…

Bubba Gump Shrimp Co, Monterrey

On a scale of 1-Bubba, how good is your knowledge of crustaceans and the culinary arts? “Shrimp is the fruit of the sea….”

Bubba is looking for some new Irish mates this summer to work as servers and with 10 positions available you could keep your Wolf Pack (sorry that’s very 2011) together.

They’re looking for servers to start from May 25th – June 14th right up until September. The pay is pretty excellent too @ $10.50 + tips (massive in the US) and you’ll work a minimum of 30 hours a week – kerching!

Applications available now through your J1 portal (for jobs access package holders only).

Margaritaville, Myrtle Beach

Another institution of American food & drink, the Margaritaville chain are looking for up to 10 hosts in Myrtle Beach in the summer. If you’re a bit of a Beach Babe like Amy, this is going to be your dream location!

Brilliantly located next to the Myrtle Beach SkyWheel, you’ll be paid $8 per hour, plus your tips and have approximately 500m walk to the beach. Nice!

Landshark Bar & Grill, Myrtle Beach

Another fine establishment on the East Coast batting their eyelids for your attention. Landshark is looking for up to seven staff for the summer including hosts, servers and retail assistants.

Applications available now through your J1 portal (for jobs access package holders only).
