I worked at Peace Corps full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Learn a new language, live in a new culture, be challenged to solve problems in ways you never expected. Service in a small village in southern Mali, but Glassdoor doesn't even have Bamako as an option for location.

Cons

It can be lonely. There will be challenges: communication, plumbing, and transportation come to mind.

    I worked at Peace Corps full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working for the Peace Corps gives you the opportunity to gain valuable experience working internationally as well as proficiency in another language. The flexibility in working hours and ability to determine the focus of my work were major benefits. The job also gives you a sense of contributing to society.

    Cons

    After gaining perspective from two years of working and living in another country, the value of individual projects may seem diminished in the context of the developmental progress of the country as a whole. There was frustration over the instability of job and projects
