"I have TransUSA Exchange on my "speed dial" whenever we are ready to welcome another J-1 participants. They understand the high service standards we have in place and they work with this in mind when selecting participants for our properties. They have great follow through; their communication is direct and timely; they possess outstanding organizational and interpersonal skills and are a great source of information about the program regulations and rules in general."
Natasha Shevchenko, Human Resources Manager, Fiddler's Creek Foundation
"TransUSA Exchange has been a key agency in the success of our program. Our representative is very knowledgeable of the program and responds quickly to inquiries. The quality of the candidates has been excellent. The participants arrive well organized, prepared and eager to learn in their position. We are always sad to see the interns leave, as they have done an outstanding job growing as an intern at our resort."
Rebecca Wagner, Recruiting Coordinator-International Programs, Deer Valley Resort
"What I find extraordinary is the expeditious way they meet my requests; paying special attention to desired qualifications. They take the time to pre-qualify students. They recognize that we wish to interview candidates and they work with us and the various representatives in other countries to get the students scheduled and prepared for these interviews, sometimes in very short time frames."
Amanda Holman, Human Resources Manager, The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort
"We have had a fantastic working relationship with TransUSA Exchange and their participants. They have been exceptionally easy to work with, and participants we have on board via their company have offered great enrichment to our organization by sharing their culture with our entire team and all our resort guests. I certainly would not hesitate to recommend their services to other resorts. They have definitely been one of our favorite partners in hosting the talented and diverse youth that are yearning to gain better future job prospects from their experiences in the U.S. tourist industry."
Michelle Taylor, Assistant Director of Human Resources, Hilton Marco Island Beach Resort and Spa
"The program experience in the U.S. gave me unforgettable moments and the most unforgettable year of my life. Not just to meet new friends but it's an experience with the chance to explore, be yourself and to be an inspiration to the next generation who will have their internship."
Katrina, Marco Beach Resort
"My experience in the U.S. was overall amazing. The training I had at The King and Prince Resort extended my knowledge and capabilities as a chef. When they offered me a promotion, it didn't only make me a better leader, but it also developed my confidence in everything that I do. I had no regrets being in the U.S. and it changed my life in many ways imaginable. Thanks to TransUSA Exchange for making it possible."
Louie, The King & Prince Resort
"Being away from your comfort zone for a year is one of the scariest experiences one could ever have. Little did I know, coming to the United States would be one of the best experience I ever had in my life. I had my training at Hyatt Regency in Downtown Houston with my roommates Leaster and Nikki. We met a lot of people who taught us how to be a better version of ourselves. The chefs, co-workers and everyone we met gave us all the fun, love and lessons we need. It is so PRICELESS. It was just a dream before, but everything is still not sinking into me. I don't know how to thank everyone who helped me to go where I am right now. But first, I want to thank TransUSA Exchange for making my dreams come true easily."
Chelsea, Hyatt Regency Houston
"Being here for 4 months now has been one of the greatest experience of my life, I never thought that my internship could take me to places like these. Participating in TransUSA Exchange has been a blast! I get to further enhance my skills as a cook, meet different people and their cultures, but most of all change the way I look at life. Back home I was living inside my comfort zone, like having people cook for me, do my laundry, ask for money. But when I came here it all changed. I became my own man, the captain of my own ship. No one to turn to but myself, I suddenly realized that working in the U.S. made me grow not just as a professional, but most of all as an individual. Being a J-1 intern, it opened my eyes to vast opportunities that I've never imagined. But the most important thing about this program is that I am able to improve my skills and at the same time get to explore this beautiful country which I will cherish for the rest of my life."
