Initially launched in December 2018, SeasonalJobs.dol.gov is a mobile-friendly online portal that leverages the latest technologies to broaden dissemination of available temporary and seasonal job opportunities for which U.S. workers may be interested in applying. To facilitate broader dissemination of available job opportunities beyond this site, job information is also available to any third-party (e.g., job search websites) through data feeds, which can be extracted daily and indexed for further advertising to U.S. workers. Additionally, SeasonalJobs.dol.gov makes information about H-2A and H-2B job opportunities more accessible to U.S. workers with limited English proficiency by offering a Spanish translation of both the website content and specific terms and conditions of the job opportunity (see disclaimer below).
How to Apply for Jobs on SeasonalJobs.dol.gov
To apply for a job, please contact the U.S. employer directly by using the “Recruitment Information” available on the job listing.
For more information about the Department of Labor’s administration of H-2A or H-2B visa programs, please visit the Office of Foreign Labor Certification.
For more information about eligibility for H-2A or H-2B visas, please visit the Department of Homeland Security’s United States Citizenship and Immigration Services.
The Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) offers translations of the job postings through Microsoft Translator. Because Microsoft Translator is an external translation service, OFLC does not control the quality or accuracy of translated content. All job posting content is filtered through Microsoft Translator which may result in unexpected and unpredictable degradation of portions of text, images and the general appearance on translated pages. Microsoft Translator may maintain unique privacy and use policies. These policies are not controlled by OFLC and are not associated with OFLC privacy and use policies. Users should consult the original English content on Seasonal Jobs if there are any questions about the translated content.
OFLC uses Microsoft Translator to provide language translations of job postings. Microsoft Translator relies on data and technology to provide its translations. The Microsoft Translator feature is provided for informational purposes only. Translations cannot be guaranteed as exact or without the inclusion of incorrect or inappropriate language. Microsoft Translator is a third-party service and site users will be using these translation services on Seasonal Jobs to utilize translated content. As such, OFLC cannot guarantee or claim responsibility for the accuracy, reliability, or performance of this service nor the limitations provided by this service, such as the inability to translate specific files like pdfs and graphic (e.g. .jpgs, .gifs, etc.).
OFLC uses Microsoft Translator as a tool for its users, but OFLC does not directly endorse the translation service or imply that it is the only solution to users. All site visitors may choose to use similar tools for their translation needs. Any individuals or parties that use OFLC content in translated form, whether by Microsoft Translator or by any other translation services, do so at their own risk. OFLC is not responsible for any damages or issues of translated content not officially sanctioned and approved by the agency.
