In March, CCI Greenheart staff traveled to Istanbul, Turkey to conduct an international Job Fair! Participants gathered to learn more about CCI Greenheart, meet with representatives from two host organizations, and interview for Work and Travel seasonal positions. After their interviews, over 80 enthusiastic participants hired! Potential participants are excited to be working throughout the United States in positions such as lifeguards, housekeepers, reception desk attendants, restaurant servers, and retail associates.

Later, our group went sightseeing in Istanbul! An ancient city where travelers’ paths have crossed for thousands of years, Istanbul abounds with historical landmarks. We visited the Galata Tower, the Basilica Cistern, the Istanbul Sapphire (the tallest building in Turkey), and the Sultan Ahmet Mosque, known as the Blue Mosque because of the beautiful blue tiles adorning the walls and ceiling.

We hope our Turkish participants enjoy their summer in the United States as much as we enjoyed our time in their home country!
