Many start off through exchange programmes as gaining permission to work is both a lengthy and difficult process. For precise details of gaining permission, you should write to the United States Embassy, 24 Grosvenor Square, London W1A 2JB. Foreign workers are described as "aliens" which gives a flavour of the problem. ——————————————————————————————————3/4—— Have you got a careers query?

You are likely to get addresses of these organisations from the Student Union at your local college. For more addresses consult the books mentioned. Many organisations pay the return flight, provide an allowance, and time for a holiday at the end. ——————————————————————————————————4/4—— Have you got a careers query?
