Recently, CCI Greenheart’s Daniel Ebert traveled to Colombia to conduct hiring for the summer 2013 Work & Travel season!


This year, the Colombian job fair was held in Bucaramanga. Bucaramanga is known as a university town with the Universidad Industrial de Santander calling it home, and has become one of the fastest growing cities in Latin America. It is also the home of extreme sports and it is said that, compared to the rest of the continent, the winds are best for flying. As a result, paragliding and other “windy” sports have become quite popular for this Colombian city.


From one “Windy City” (Chicago) to another, CCI Greenheart is excited to work with the Colombian participants. Cheers to summer 2013!
