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

    Pros

    You have the freedom to explore your professional interests while having the network of volunteers and staff assist you. You can make it as meaningful as you want it. I keep things busy and had plenty of experiences that I can pull from, even several years later

    Cons

    The hardest part is working inside of another culture -- and two years is a short time to really affect much.

    I have been working at Peace Corps full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Best experience of my life. I had a great village and people to work with. The primary project I was assigned wasn't really viable when I got to my village so I had to utilize relationship building to understand needs in the community and then build secondary projects that were challenging and meaningful to the communities I worked in. It was a really great experience to understand myself, how I work, and gain a global perspective.

    Cons

    If you are not a self-starter or work well in ambiguous work setting you may have a hard time.
