    No, $15 is achievable but may be difficult to find in short-term employment. The problem will be the job market is pretty bleak right now.
    I would suggest working hard and saving as much as you can until next summer so you can afford to look at a broader range of jobs in the US and perhaps work less and travel and see more of the country while you are here. What country is home for you and is your english fluent?

    Absolutely. Especially if you're attractive, you really don't need very much skill to make pretty good money (as a female).

    thanks.

    I am from Croatia. My english - i dont know, i am not used talking in english, but i guess in 2-3 weeks i'd adapt. I can practice until then.
    And, as I've said, I have no problem with spending next 6-9 months learning something that will open more jobs for me. i am extremely fast learner - but I need to know what to pick.

    This was my point as well. Croatian, attractive, smiling and pouring drinks. Not only are the tips great but managers love to hire women that make men want to buy more alcohol.

    Reality is sexist.

    umm, so how much they earn like that?

    i am surprised that most people i talked with who have been with CCUSA, were earning about 10 USD, and most of them were working as bussers, and life guards. something like that.

    Here you go Chloe - http://www.amazon.com/Work-Your-Arou.../dp/1854583670
    This book was a big help to me when I was living in Ireland.
    If you have friends here which it seemed like you implied that you did, get as much local information from them as you can. They will be invaluable for you in securing a place to stay and a place to work.

    My guess would be 7-15 per hour wages and lots of tips on top of that. Don't count on getting a job with any benefits as most that offer them will likely not hire short term employees.
