I’d always wanted to work in America and was really excited when I found out about the Work America programme through BUNAC. I was able to find a job through BUNAC’s work directory and spent the summer working for a theme park in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
Every day I got to meet hundreds of people and the staff got to live on site and as if working with a great group of friends wasn’t enough, on our days off we got to visit loads of amazing places. BUNAC was so helpful throughout the whole process and whenever I encountered a problem I knew BUNAC would be able to answer my question either over the phone or in the extensive literature they provided. I had the best summer and employers in the UK are really interested when they see my CV and see that I have worked overseas – I can’t wait to go back again this year and see even more of this great country.
