The toughest job you'll ever love

Former Employee - Agroforestry Extension Agent
Former Employee - Agroforestry Extension Agent

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

Pros

It is truly a life-changing experience to live and work in another country. PCVs learn invaluable communication and problem-solving skills that can transfer to any job after service.

Also, I love the Third Goal of the mission statement - "Helping promote a better understanding of other peoples on the part of Americans." Because of this, PC service is never really finished.

Cons

A pro and a con - since many PCVs live far from the PC offices, they receive little support from PC staff. This requires PCVs to develop self-motivation skills.

    Pros

    Interned with a fun, young team. Friendly environment and great location. Work with a lot of returned Peace Corps volunteers so everyone has stories to share.

    Cons

    Day-to-day tasks for interns tended to be repetitive. Would have been nice to work on larger projects. Although not a problem for interns, the turnover rate is high due to office policy so don't expect to stay for the long-term.
