1st JCI Hawaii You're Hired Champion? From my understanding, You're Hired is a brand new competition created by JCI USA. I was fortunate to win at the JCI Hawaii level last weekend and will now get to compete nationally against other US Jaycees who won in their state in September.
You know, we all join and stay for different reasons, and what we get out of it depends on what we put in. I had no set goal, no set structure, no set idea when I joined. But I think I'm drawn to management. I think I need to recognize I am drawn to understanding and implementing logistics, solving issues, putting my hands on something and shaping it. When I joined, I was afraid where I could end up, I knew from the beginning I would be tempted to become involved. I didn't want to be that kind of member. I wanted to have my own time, my own free time, free from responsibility... yet here I am. I think I need to recognize that my passion is leadership. I want to be ambitious, I want to accomplish and reach goals. I initially fought those urges, but here I am, president of my chapter. I love the pressure, I love the responsibility, I love this experience and this opportunity to learn. My only regret is not being able to build up to this position. This July will be my 2 year anniversay in the organization. In less that 2 years I've gotten really involved... and I love it. I love this organization. This organization has so much history, and while it may not be as prominent as it once was, it still is relevant today and still has plenty of potential, but more importantly it provides young adults to reach their potential or even push it to higher levels. We can't shy away from these sort of opportunities, whether in the Jaycees, in school, or work we can't shy away.
