    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Peace Corps full-time (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.
