This year, CCI Greenheart was happy to have a Job Fair with our partner in Colombia – SEP (Student Exchange Program). I had the honor of representing CCI Greenheart at this event, which took place on February 12th. This was an exciting time for not just CCI Greenheart, but SEP as well because this was the biggest job fair they’ve had yet. And what a success this job fair was!

There were over 60 attendees and out of that group, 54 participants were hired. All of the participants were enthusiastic and very professional.

Before the job fair event, the host organizations and I had the pleasure of being charmed and entertained by the wonderful SEP team. Besides their fast and furious style of driving, SEP ensured that we were comfortable, happy, and full of arepas (a traditional food item most similar to a potato pancake) throughout our time there. One day they took us to a national park called “Parque Nacional de Chicamocha.” This was a perfect place to take to representatives in the water park industry because the park had a water park right in the middle of mountains! Amazement spread across all three of our faces as we approached the park.

From soaking up the sun, admiring the mountains, and sharing lots of laughter, it was clear that memories were being made. All around, it was a successful job fair in Colombia.

Get involved with CCI Greenheart and consider hiring J-1 participants!
