LDi Mobilization and Recruitment

Timing is Everything

The Mobilization and Recruitment team are excited to share they have heard several stories about individuals seeking an opportunity to teach abroad and they started to apply with other organizations, but for unexplainable reasons felt they needed to wait to apply. They learned about LDi shortly thereafter and they were grateful to find an organization that shared their own values and vision. Keep this recruits in mind as they are completing the application process and learning more about living abroad.
