JOB: ‘It’s Your World-Travel!’ of Burien is hiring
What a great job! You can help our small Burien travel agency create international understanding and peace in the next generation.
It’s Your World-Travel! of Burien is accepting applications for a seasonal employee to organize the visa processing and airline ticketing necessary for Rotary Youth Exchange students to embark on their international adventures.
This small company has been serving Rotary Youth Exchange students across North America for more than 30 years. Among the crew, we have more than 100 years of youth exchange experience. Last summer, we helped more than 400 teenagers travel to and from more than 40 countries.
We need a detail-oriented team player, who can:
- accurately research international visa and travel entry requirements,
- interpret those ever-changing rules across language and cultural barriers,
- guide students, their families and Rotary volunteers to comply with the rules of consulates and airlines around the world,
provide great customer service to three generations of client groups,
- meet deadlines that are often outside our control,
- address problems with a positive, pragmatic and flexible attitude.
While the use of an automated system is involved, this position requires strong organizational and personal communication skills – on paper and online, in person and by phone or electronic message.
The work is fulltime weekdays, from mid-January through August. Some additional time and/or US/Canada travel may be required for the team to be successful, including evening and/or weekend work.
The successful candidate may have previous experience in youth exchange, international travel arrangements, airline ticketing, and/or working with ambitious teens, nervous parents and dedicated Rotary volunteers.
No phone calls at this time please; we expect to be in touch with applicants by mid-December.

It’s Your World, Travel!
