Another spring season is starting to take shape for the Work and Travel department, and CCI Greenheart is excited for a successful 2014! CCI Greenheart staff and American employers recently visited Thailand to conduct the annual spring Job Fairs. The trip was successful as CCI Greenheart and employers were presented with exceedingly qualified students that were eager to enter into the J-1 Summer Work Travel program. During the fair participants were oriented to the program, interviewed by American employers and then, for many, were hired!

Thai participants have had a long reputation of being a very hard working, intelligent, and passionate group. This did not change for the Job Fairs a few weeks ago. All of the Thai interviewees were excited to have the opportunity to come to the United States. This desire was showcased during the interviews.  It was a challenging task for CCI Greenheart staff and the American employers to choose between the participants!

On top of the successful Job Fairs, CCI Greenheart and the American employers were made welcomed by the sending agencies’ hospitality. All guests experienced various cultural excursions, including a tour of the Grand Palace and the famous Amphawa Floating Market, which was located on the outskirts of Bangkok.
