So this week I got an e-mail from the CSC coordinator asking us to put together a cover letters and CV (aka resumé) so that our team could be matched to one or more projects. I worked on putting the material together over the weekend and send it in on Monday. I have to say that I spent a lot of time on my cover letter and CV (my CV was already done, but needed some touch ups), making sure both were simple enough to be understood by people who don’t have English as their first language.
I am really excited to begin the pre-work and to find out more about what I am going to do. From the communications I have received so far, I know that I am going to be working with a pretty diverse international team and I think that those strengths are going to play to our advantage. Right now it is a little over 4½ months away and that feels like a long time. I know however how quickly time flies so I know that this adventure will begin soon.
I am already now beginning to blog about this CSC experience in Nigeria so that I get into the habit and then hopefully will also keep everyone updated on this latest and greatest adventure
