Hi there people of travellerspoint this is the first time ive posted in here and im hoping that you wise people could give me some advice please..
I was successful in applying for a job to work as a ski instructor in Colorado, I start work in December and finish in May 2006 as this is the winter season, my boyfriend is also doing the same season and we are going out there to work on H2B visas which the company is sorting out for us at the moment..
This is the first time I've ever done this, my boyfriend has gone out there to work for the past 5 years for winter seasons so obv has a lot of experience of it (he's teaching me how to ski at the moment lots of fun!!) and I am def def looking forward to it as have always wanted to travel and am really pleased that im getting out of me 9-5 office job to do something that is completely different..the only thing is I am feeling slightly nervous as well though and i dont like to mention it to him too much because i want to be as positive as possible but i just had a couple of questions that i hoped you guys would be able to answer..
1. When applying for my H2B visa will the American immigration look into my credit history as i am in quite a lot of debt and this is something that is playing on my mind as I'm obv really hoping that they'll accept my visa application and would be really bummed if this is a reason why they wont let you!!
2. We can only work for the company that is sorting out our H2B visas for the period of time that we are working out there for them, so wont be able to do any casual bar work while we're teaching skiing but this doesnt matter too much, but i would absoluely love to go on a road trip style thing after we finish the season and travel across america picking up casual work, is this possible?
And where would you recommend going??!
3. Do you have any advice on things i could do in the meantime to boost my friend making skills...as he already has a core group of friends out there that is a good thing in a way but i also dont want to be seen as just his girlfriend (if you catch my drift?)
I'm not the most self confident of people but would love to learn how to be, and I just wondered if anyone had any tips on how to be able to make friends easier..I am a nice person.. honest!! As I don't want my self confidence issues to ruin our trip out there and i trying my hardest to do things that will improve this..
Thanks for any replies, I just wanted to get these off my chest as they had been niggling me but i didnt want to put a negative viewpoint across to me oh!
