I started to work for Kabissa two months ago as volunteer recruiter and am currently working on recruiting volunteers for the two positions Blogger in Chief and Event Coordinator. For the past month I have been collecting CVs and inviting candidates for interviews. My first experiences with online recruiting for Kabissa have been really great. So far I have received dozens great applications and have had exchanges and skype calls with enthuastic people all over the world. Some were more enthusiastic than others, however everyone who applied wanted to help in one way or another. I was very happy to see that.
In many cases I was very much surprised about their level of expertise and backgrounds and started to wonder why I have not volunteered before. The biggest challenge in this job is the time difference as I sometimes have to make interviews in the middle of the night but it is worth it. I love this job and interviewing people from all over the world. I hope to be able to find volunteers who will strengthen our team and share the same passion for Africa as I have.
The interviews for the blogger in chief and event coordinator positions should be finalised by mid April and I look forward to presenting the two newest members of the team!
Applications are still open so if you are interested in volunteering, please visit the Kabissa Volunteering page and apply!
