Approves of CEO

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

Pros

It was truly an experience to be able to develop your own agenda and participate in the planning and execution of said project from start to finish. Where else where you be able to have complete autonomy of your desired work program? Plus, you get to make contacts in countless international organizations.

Cons

The pay is obviously lacking, and the work does not always translate into a job.
