Shannon’s Favorite Quote(S)
Let’s Talk About Travelers School!!!
What was your biggest take away from Travelers School…Biggest Win?
Confidence!!!! It’s something that I would fake it, till I make it, my whole life! But to actually have knowledge and not have to fake it is SOOOOOOO REWARDING to me!!!!
I just landed my second assignment and negotiated the crap out of it with my new awesome recruiter. Normally I would just take what’s given in life and not ask questions, but having the knowledge I’ve gained from Travelers School helped me to HAVE QUESTIONS and UNDERSTAND WHY it was fair for me to get the pay I desired!! It felt amazing!!!
What was your favorite part about Travelers School…Why?
Kim and Erran!!! You guys are soooo uplifting and positive! Even through the worst start and the worst assignment I think I could have found (God hopefully) to begin this career, you guys gave me so much light to get me through it! It’s been a rough one! I really hope I don”t find many places like this who treat travelers like they first did.
As well, I started with a recruiter who was (let’s just say non existent). You guys constantly made me redirect and look at what I can gain from all of it! I’ve already grown SOOO MUCH!
Who would you recommend Travelers School to?
Everyone in the travel world! I’ve told every traveler I meet about you guys!
In your opinion, why do you think Travelers should invest in Travelers School….what will they get out of it?
You will gain an abundance of knowledge to kick off your career or even better the one you have begun! Get the most out of this career!!
