Janus International is a leader in international recruitment and major resource for companies to transform their business with international talent. Each year we recruit thousands of J-1 visa program participants for hotels, stores, restaurants, resorts, amusement parks and lifeguard employers all across the U.S. Our team has extensive experience working with immigration, visas and embassies to implement international work experience, training and cultural exchange programs. We have built relationships with an established network of partners in over 15 countries and we are a designated Work/Travel visa sponsor by the U.S. Department of State.
We have extensive experience serving the seasonal J-1 needs of the hospitality industry. As a U.S. State Department Designated J-1 Sponsor Agency, we offer our clients a specialized solution to meeting the winter, spring and summer seasonal staffing requirement of their hospitality business.
This solution is the J-1 Work and Travel Program visa, which allows international college students to visit and work legally in the U.S. for a period of up to 4 months. Through hiring J-1 participants for their seasonal business needs, host employers serve a key role in fulfilling the public diplomacy and mutual understanding goals of the program and promoting cultural exchange between the United States and other parts of the world. In turn, host employers benefit from having access to a more diverse workforce to fill peak and/or intermittent recruitment needs not met by local hiring efforts, and the ability to operate for a lengthier season.
Our J-1 host employer clients are reporting high levels of satisfaction with their participation in the program, due to the addition of qualified J-1s to their team that create a more robust and diverse group of seasonal employees and add an international dimension to their work place. Our rigorous selection process and our focus only on employers in the hospitality industry helps our clients achieve their seasonal operational goals, while contributing to the cross-cultural exchange mission of the Work and Travel program through providing J-1 participants the opportunity to experience American culture firsthand.
We visit over 15 countries annually and conduct major international Job Fairs to locate the best candidates that have selected Janus International as their U.S. Sponsor Agency to participate in the U.S. “Work and Travel” visa Program. Our focus is limited to applicants that meet or exceed the English fluency, experience, skills, presentation and positive attitude standards that are required by the hospitality industry.
