“No regrets!”

My relationship with Jobseekers International began three years ago. I participated in the J-1 Summer Work and Travel Program for two years and now I am currently on the J-1 Intern/Trainee Program, and I must say I have not had a moment of regret! I was placed at The Kennebunk Inn as a Chef Garde Manager where I got the opportunity to work with professional chefs who taught me a lot. I am at the end of my program and I can proudly say this has been an amazing experience. I can also proudly say I can plan and execute an event successfully. After two weeks of shadowing my supervisor, I was able to handle inventory on my own and ensure the preparation and presentation of dishes were to the standard of the restaurant. I must say how grateful I am to Jobseekers International Placement Agency for their role in this opportunity as without them this wouldn’t be possible. Their keen vetting process to ensure I was placed in a job that is related to my career, and ensuring that I would be housed comfortably while being here says a lot about them positively. I must also emphasize how exciting the cultural exchange part of the program is, as I was happy to make new friends, some of which will last a lifetime, trying new foods and even learning new languages was a plus for me. I recommend Jobseekers International Placement Agency to anyone willing to take the next step in building their career on an international level as I can guarantee it will be a decision you won’t regret!
