The Local Coordinator ("LC") plays an important role in the InterExchange Work & Travel USA program. A Local Coordinator's primary responsibilities are to introduce local seasonal employers to the benefits of the InterExchange Work & Travel USA program and to manage and expand employer accounts. Local Coordinators are InterExchange employees, who work from home and receive a base salary compensation plus commission. Local Coordinators promote the program, generate new leads and provide follow-up with seasonal employers in their regions. Local Coordinators will also be responsible for maintaining student housing contacts and assisting in arranging affordable, safe, temporary housing. During the seasons when international students are in-country, Local Coordinators will identify, plan, initialize and organize local cultural events and other activities that provide students with exposure to American society, culture and values.
Local Coordinators are self-starters who are great at making connections and enjoy acting as a resource for clients and students. Local Coordinators use their knowledge of the local business community and superior communication skills to recruit area businesses that would like to hire and host international student employees during their busy seasons. Local Coordinators will report to the Employer & Community Engagement Manager and may also work closely with other staff in our New York City headquarters. Local Coordinators will not be responsible for orienting or counseling participants.
