Chicago Street Fest

Chicago Street Fest

Winter in Chicago seemed to linger just a little longer this year. We experienced a long, cold, and very wet spring here in the Midwest. Now that the weather is getting steamy, outdoor street festivals have taken over every neighborhood in the city, and as most of our participants have arrived to the United States, we can rest assured summer is finally here. But just as everyone is breaking out their bathing suits and BBQ grills to relish Chicago’s favorite season, CCI Greenheart has winter on the mind.

No doubt it is difficult to think about mittens, snow, and hot chocolate while we are making plans for 4th of July, but CCI Greenheart is excited to be gearing up for our 2014 Winter season! CCI Greenheart is reaching out to all our winter employers to get them set up for hiring their winter participants before they head out on their own summer vacations and adventures. CCI Greenheart has also been planning and organizing two job fairs, one in Rio de Janeiro and one in Lima, Peru to take place in August. These job fairs give our participants the opportunity to apply and interview in person with our employers. In addition to Brazil and Peru, our winter program will have participants coming in from Argentina, Chile, Costa Rica, and Paraguay.

Always one or two seasons ahead of ourselves, we are grateful that we can take our iced coffee and winter planning sessions outside to enjoy the hot summer sunshine. So become a job fair employer and experience winter in the summer!
