I have been working at Peace Corps full-time

Pros

work with little supervision on projects you develop closely with community contacts while learning a new language

Cons

You don't get paid much, and there's always the chance you'll get sent somewhere that you just don't like.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the hiring process competitive. You need people who are willing to go anywhere and work hard.

    Amazing lifetime experience. Great people, both the volunteers and the locals

    I have been working at Peace Corps full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Travel, culture and opportunity. It is a great way to meet people with similar interests and a travel the world. You become part of a community in service and at home.

    Cons

    You are poor. You will miss your family. You are poor. As a government agency working with volunteers safety and security is a high priority and so often times you may feel as though you are being babied.
