Bootcamp Experience: 5CA’s first work & holiday project in Valencia
Time for a weekly meeting with my Project Lead – nothing special, just a chat. “Marina, I want to organize a Bootcamp for our project in Spain”, says Tudor. “We’ll get everyone under one roof, work together, have fun together. Would you be up for it?’’ He’s looking at me in anticipation, and the excitement in his eyes is contagious. Well, can you guess the answer? Just two months later, there we were. Nine people from eight different countries, together in a huge apartment with a terrace and a swimming pool, somewhere in beautiful Valencia, Spain. SAY WHAAAAT? ?
“For me, the Bootcamp was the most fun and interesting work and holiday experience I’ve ever participated in. Part of that is of course because I planned and organized it, which was a first time for me as well. All in all, I’m really happy with the outcome and hope to participate in future editions as well!”
Our team consists of in-office and remote agents. Even though we have been working together for some time already, most of us didn’t have a chance to meet in person. I expected that meeting them face to face and working in the same room for the first time might feel a bit odd. And oh, was I wrong! Right of the bat finally being all together felt like the most natural thing we could imagine.
If I had to pick my favorite and most surreal moment, that was when out of nowhere all of my teammates gathered up to wish me a happy birthday, cake included! But wait, there’s more! I had never thought I would end up in a cold pool at night in Valencia as a special treat for my birthday. Thanks again! I’ll make sure to keep memories of it in the dearest way possible.
