It has been a flight filled two weeks since my last blog… traveling back and forward between Durban and Johannesburg. Spending a number of hours in the air I got time to reminisce over the past 4 years of recruiting for Workaway. There comes a time in your life when you feel a huge sense of pride in something you’ve achieved…
With the first club interviews behind us we head straight into round two. Up in Johannesburg we had Richard and Angela from Addison Reserve, Angela from Workaway Florida office and our very own South Africa Manager Charlotte interviewing participants for some of the most exclusive Country Clubs in the United States… I truly don’t know how they select the participant as everyone is just so nice and super friendly!
Then off we go to Durban … with Mirasol and BallenIsles interviewing applicants as well as Angela and Charlotte of Workaway International still energetic and friendly after two whole days of interviews, Johannesburg then Cape Town now Durban. Embracing the excitement of the applicants and the humour of my team, we made it through the day successfully. Thank you to Calvin, Kappie, Tyrone, Kaycee and Nolene, you all made me proud. “Good Job”.
With everything going off well and the clubs making their selection, we are left with placing the remaining a
applicants over the next few weeks… Congratulations to the applicants that have been selected and a heartfelt thank you for allowing me the opportunity to feel a sense of pride, especially in being a part of you stepping out into the big world and making a success of the opportunity at hand.
To the others waiting for a reply… there is still hope, so hang in there. The wait will be worth it. As for the applicants that have not made it, I would like to add one of my favorite scriptures. “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love Him, to enable them to fulfill the purpose for which they are called. (Romans 8:28)”.
…remember this might be the time in your life when you get the opportunity to experience that sense of pride in something you’ve achieved no matter how big or small…
