Frequently Asked Questions - Jobseeker Info
We no longer accept resumes, or job application by post, email, or drop-off at the office. All registration and submitting of application/resume is done online (employmentjamaica.com). Our website is set up in a format that enables you to search jobs and allow recruiters to match you to their position. It is therefore important you complete your profile correctly.
Once you travel back to Jamaica you will need a new H-2B visa in order to return. Your current H-2B visa is assigned for a specific job with an end date and is only legal for working at that job.
There is no fee to go on the H-2B Program. It is illegal to collect fees from H-2B workers, therefore the Employers covers all expenses, including airfare and visa voucher charges.
Yes, you can, but there is no guarantee when you will get a job as the H-2B jobs are few and hundreds of workers apply for these jobs. Bear in mind that the employer decides who they want to hire from the selection of candidates put forward, plus it also depends if the state you prefer has H-2B jobs available.
Through e-JAM we make sure accommodation are available for our workers before they leave Jamaica.
