I worked at Peace Corps full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Cross-cultural sharing, learning a new language, making life-long friendships, experiencing the challenges and opportunities of the developing world

Cons

Difficult transitions - both going into and coming out of Peace Corps. But these transitions in themselves are excellent learning and personal development achievements.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Open Peace Corps programs in more countries. Increase visibility/ awareness of Peace Corps in the US.

    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.
