Exciting adventure

Hi Delphine and everyone here. I am really looking forward to sharing this adventure together. When I first heard about WorldPulse I was deeply touched by the stories I read and just loved how the voices of women were being supported in being heard. To now actually be here and participate in this listener program, wow, amazing.
'See' you on the call.

Need Clarification

Regards I need clarification on rating assignments for instance underneath is question 7, there are numbers 1 to 5 for rating and i suppose this is for the left question but there is another question at the right which has no numbers for rating it, please help me understand.
I hope my question is clear.

Question 7: OVERALL- How do you feel about this assignment overall? *
Take a step back, and rank this assignment OVERALL. How do you feel about the work presented here?

I am left wanting more; I feel that something was missing. 1 2 3 4 5 I feel moved and inspired!

clarification

Hello,

The questions is asking how did you feel overall about the assignment, about the work presented to you in this assignment.
You will give a 1 to an assignment if you felt that you wanted more and/or something was missing.
You will give a 5 to an assignment if you felt moved by it and inspired by it!
Does that make sense?
Thanks for your question!

Thankyou

thank You for the clarification I get it. But another thing is the conference calls I have being unable to join in the calls because of the time difference but I have not yet received any recording. When can I expect a recording?.

recording

Hi Chinemu,

I am glad I was able to help you.
I did send the recording last week. I am surprised you did not receive it!
Would you check your Spam folder. If it is not there, email me delphine@worldpulse.com asking for the recording and I will send it to you.
Sorry about that!

Hi Delphine,

I wanted to clarify if we are expected as Listeners to both complete the review form, which is only seen by VOF staff, and provide comments in the applicants' journals in addition to that? Just checking to see which comments are seen by the applicant.

Thanks,

Jackie

comments

Hi Jackie,

thanks for your question.
The comment which is seen by the applicant is the one you leave on her journal entry, on World Pulse.
The comment you leave on the review form is for World Pulse staff. The comments you leave for staff can be positive and bringing our attention to something great about the writing,or some concern about the assignment.
I hope this helps.
