I worked at Peace Corps

Pros

It looks great on a resume and you get access to a huge network when you finish. It really does help you learn a lot of important skills like working in different environment, working independently, etc

Cons

It can be very lonely and you don't get to choose where you go. It's also hard to not make any real money for a while.

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

    Pros

    Peace Corps was one of the best experiences I ever had and opened lots of opportunities into the international development world for me.

    Cons

    There's not a set assignment or structured work schedule, so volunteers often have to be flexible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some consistency in administration across country programs.
