About us

Kerfoot's Foreign Student Program has placed hundreds of students with employers over the past 6 years. We specialize in students interested and studying in the hospitality field. We have placed students from Massachusetts to Montana to Alaska. We concentrate on each individual employers needs and how they can have the best experience possible with their international students.

At the present time we are working with United Work and Travel, as they are an appointed agency by the state department to issue J-1 Summer Work visas. We also work with the Cultural Exchange Network and Global Career Exchange for 12 month placements for students coming for cultural and training purposes. We are committed to our students and employers so there is a great cultural and work experience for all involved.
