The ball is really beginning to roll!
The morning after I received my medical clearance email, I logged on to check my official PC application status (yet again). I tell you: there is no finer feeling than seeing that measly little status finally change!
So, now that I’m legally cleared, I know my application is sitting on some placement officer’s desk. I’m really excited to hear from someone (literally anyone) regarding the next steps. From what I’ve read, I think I’ll be asked to submit an updated resume, a survey of sorts, and perhaps do a phone interview with the officer before my final invitation is issued. Apparently they’ve gone to an entirely electronic system for invites, which is a little bit sad since I was excited to receive the traditional blue envelope in the mail. However, I’ll take what I can get!
More than anything, it’s really exciting to be part of the PC applicant community and be happy for other volunteers as invitations are issued. This morning, I saw someone with an invite to Botswana!
