Greenheart Exchange is in the midst of Job Fair season, helping our Host Organizations interview and hire the seasonal staff needed for the coming summer. We have a variety of job fairs to meet the needs of businesses: International Job Fairs (in locations like Thailand…keep reading!), Virtual Job Fairs, and Greenheart World’s Fair interview sessions in Chicago.
Recently, our own Renee Clarke accompanied some of our Host Organizations to Thailand for in-person interview sessions. Here is her report from Thailand and some insights on what happens at an International Job Fair:
International Job Fairs with Greenheart means traveling to do in-person interviews with participants who are pre-screened for their English levels, prepared for the job they are interviewing for, and have had an overview of the Summer Work Travel (SWT) Program, including deadlines and regulations. International Job Fair events are a whirlwind of amazing energy. Here’s what is happening:
Afterwards, we dove into the culture of the country with a volunteer project and excursion for Thai massages. Eating local is worth the trip alone–sticky rice with mango!
No matter how many hours are spent in transit, coming face-to-face with everyone and getting to experience the Thai culture is priceless–and it all leads to a rich summer season! Thanks to our Host Organizations, Sending Partners, and Participants!
Thanks Renee for sharing and a special thanks to our Host Organizations, Sending Agencies, and all the people who came out to the Job Fair in Thailand.
