Internship with the Repeat J1 Visa

The Repeat J1 Visa gave me the opportunity to go back to the USA for a 12-month Supervisor Traineeship. This time I was working in the Four Seasons Hotel Miami as a Front Office Supervisor. During this time, I made a huge personal as well as professional development and was sure that I wanted to continue working with the same brand in the future.
