how to build your resume for peace corps

Peace

Read the resources. Our placement officers are sending applicants monthly email updates with links galore! These links lead to valuable Peace Corps resources: diversity viewpoint videos, application advice, student loan information, and more. These resources might answer questions you still have about the Peace Corps, and further explain challenges and benefits of service. But, of course, it is not necessary to limit yourself to official Peace Corps resources. Books, podcasts, and other media sources can provide some great insight into service and Volunteer life.

Due to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, it may be some time before you hear back from the placement office, but there is no shortage of Peace Corps resources to study and explore. These resources will not only have you feeling better prepared for your application journey, but also for when you finally step off the plane as a Trainee. If you have questions as you continue to research the application process or questions about service in general, please reach out to us. As placement officers, we are here to serve as a yet another resource for you during these unprecedented times. (Source: www.peacecorps.gov)

Highlight your Peace Corps and other volunteer experience: If you’ve served in the Peace Corps, AmeriCorps or another relevant service program, make sure to highlight this up front, ideally under your “Professional Experience” section. We want to know that you’ve developed the flexibility and initiative required in volunteer positions right away; don’t bury it in a separate “volunteer experience” section at the end! If you do not have previous Peace Corps experience, look for other items to ensure that skills and qualifications that demonstrate flexibility and adaptability are prominent.
