I worked at Peace Corps

Pros

Great medical coverage while abroad. Stipend they give you to live off is very reasonable. You can feel good about the work you do.

Cons

Sometimes primary assignments fall through, but that is expected in a 3rd world country.

    I worked at Peace Corps full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Being able to apply skills and help communities who have requested assistance. Working abroad and leaning a new culture. Gaining a new perspective on the developing world. Learning about the practical applications of your education.

    Cons

    Many hoops to jump through, rules and regulations associated with being a government employee. There is a culture of treating volunteers less like equals/peers in a workplace and more like students who require great supervision.
