I think the answer is NO. Officially a J1 visa is not for work, but to do an internship like of a thing, and is restricted to only that one place you will do this. I almost got in trouble when I was her on a J1 and they asked me at the POE what I did here. I responded "working" and got a huge lecture on not being allowed to be employed with an J1. Officially you are a foreign student performing student related activities in the US so also not an international student in the US (you would have an F-visa)!!
