The Camp America Job Fairs are our biggest annual calendar events. Our Fairs in 2017 will be bigger than ever before.
We organise directors from across the USA to come all the way to Australia to hire Aussie staff for their camps. So if you don’t think your application does you justice or you are just more of a character in person then this is your perfect opportunity to GET HIRED ON THE SPOT in Sydney & Melbourne!
Each year many of the Camp America participants are placed at these fairs and you too could be one of the lucky ones.
1. Be prepared: Attend a short session with our Camp America Staff where we will give you all the tips on how to give yourself the best chance of placement on the day.
2. Meet the directors: Directors will be set up booth style. Head to the camp that you want to go to first. You'll have a short interview. Make sure you show off all of your skills and personality.
3. Get hired on the spot: If the directors like what they see they will offer you at a position there and then!
4. Make it legit: Our Camp America team will be there on the day to process your placement and make it official.
5. Sort your travel: Our friends at Student Flights will be at our job fairs with awesome flight deals for our applicants.
You do not need to have an application to attend our Job Fairs. We welcome all young Aussies to take a shot at securing a placement in a US summer camp at our Job Fairs.
PLEASE NOTE: Having an existing application does make the hiring process easier on the day and shows the Camp Directors that you are organised. You can start your application free here:
