5 Things You Will Love About Au Pairing in the USA
There are so many countries around the world you can apply to au pair and deciding where to go can be difficult.
Jessica Benson from the UK has been working as an au pair in the USA and has enjoyed the experience so much she wanted to share her top benefits of applying.
If you are wondering why you should go and work as an au pair in America hopefully Jessica's list will inspire you to do something similar...
1. The USA is a Country With a Lot of Variety!
Every state is different and worth traveling. Many Americans don´t even travel out of the country because America has so much to offer.
You can travel to breathtaking cities on the amazing east coast of the USA like New York and Miami. Or you can go celebrity spotting in Los Angeles or go for a hike at the Yosemite National Park. Or what about a roadtrip along the west coast in your travel month?
You can have sun all year long in the sunshine state Florida or snow in the winter in Washington. Not only the nature and climate can be different in every state, also the mentality of the people is different and that makes it really interesting.
2. Friendly People
Americans are generally really open, friendly and helpful people and always open for a small talk. I can´t speak for every state but where I have been the people were mostly very friendly and happy to tell you about their country.
3. Make New Friends
America is popular for a lot of au pairs so it´s easy to find other au pairs and the programs have a lot of experience with having au pairs in America so you will feel safe and you will never feel alone.
4. You Get to See NYC
Most flights to the USA arrive into New York which is an amazing city. If you apply with the Cultural Care Au Pair Agency their training school in New York!
A great bonus about going to America as an au pair is the training school in New York where you not only meet other au pairs from all over the world but also getting prepared for the upcoming time and you will get a first impression of New York.
5. The Chance to Travel
The travel month!
Your visa allows you to stay one more month after your au pair time which you can use to travel the country and explore areas you have only dreamed of before.
You could travel totally independent and organised everything yourself or search USA adventures tour to discover the highights of the country.
