An interview with my employer

August 10, 2017

Spirit offers an Ambassador Scholarship for participants returning to their employer after at least one successful season. This year, Thanaporn T. returned to Tinley Park, IL, as one of your Ambassador Scholarship winners. She will blog weekly about her experiences.

Another wonderful time in America of me to get a big chance to interview with the Mr.Clint Paraday, the general manager of Odyssey Fun World.

How long have you been selecting the exchange students to work here?
We've been working with J1 students for 6 wonderful years.

What was the condition for choosing the exchange students to work here?
When we get to interview students, we were looking for the outgoing personality, students who know how to smile easily and understanding English language.

What are you expecting from us?
We enjoyed hiring J1 students to help us running the facilities as well as in return of being diversify our employees and it's also employees are be able to learn American culture and share other cultures as well.

Do you have anything to tell the student who really want to join the program but still hesitated?
I think all students are able to try to come to America should definitely try at least once  and live the experiences, live the life and take chance cause you will go home with a whole different life experiences, and cultures. It will be the best time for your summer.
