Testimonials from Saudi Arabia, Part 2

As we often form personal relationships with our recruits, it is not uncommon to receive updates and stories about their new positions overseas. These letters are often a highlight to our day, and have been known to bring a laugh to the office. Here are just a few excerpts from some of our favourites.

"I had to laugh when I got here because I do think you need to advise new recruits, similar to me, [not to] stress about packing…all you need is EMPTY suitcases, your passport, and money!!! You greatly understated the shopping here…" - Danielle Lock, RN, King Faisal Specialist Hospital - Riyadh, Saudi Arabia


"…I played at the 27th Annual Tennis Desert Classic a few months ago. I won the class C level and took home 2500 S.R. I haven't really been playing much tennis so I played at this lower level. Paid a flight ticket out of the country. If you want to know, it is about 47 degrees outside." -Ted Espiritu, RN, King Faisal Specialist Hospital - Riyadh, Saudi Arabia


"I have grown as a therapist and as a person in ways I could have never imagined. I have visited seven countries so far and have met people from all over the world and have established many lifelong friendships." - Lisa Selvey, Registered Respiratory Therapist, King Faisal Specialist Hospital - Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
