    I worked at AmeriCorps as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    AmeriCorps was perfect for me after I finished school because it allows you to do something you're passionate about while receiving a steady (though very, very small) stipend. So, you can still support yourself while doing what you love. The education stipend you receive at completion is an added bonus, which helps balance out the low pay.

    Cons

    AmeriCorps members can sometimes be seen as interns, and get doled out busy work. Just depends on what company you're working for. It can also be really a huge commitment in light of the compensation.

    Interview Details

    Depends on the Organization. If you are going to be working for a community organization you should commit a great deal of time to researching that organization and the surrounding community and why improving that community is important to you personally.

    It's important to make the intervewer believe you were meant for this role.
