Serving in the U.S. Peace Corps (http://www.peacecorps.gov/) is an end unto itself. You get to participate in a program founded in 1961, serving the most pressing needs of people around the world, doing hands-on work that calls for all the energy, commitment and skill you can muster.
However, Peace Corps service can also help you jump to the head of the line in your job-hunt. Yes, you'll gain confidence and people-experience in the Peace Corps. But imagine being able to talk about your work and travels in one of the 63 countries in which volunteers currently serve (in Africa, Latin America, Asia and more) at your job interview!
Join Ms. Anne Tatarsky, our regional Peace Corps representative, on Thursday, February 25:
- Information table in Gallagher Center from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
- Information session in Dunleavy 127 from 3 to 4:30 p.m.
Faculty and students groups who would like to invite Ms. Tatarsky to meet with them can contact Bob Swanson or Karen Kroetsch at 716.286.8500, or firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate times and locations.
Many NU graduates have served in the Peace Corps over the years--this visit is a great opportunity to discuss a meaningful way to apply your passion and skills, and to make yourself highly attractive to employers in the process.
