Peace Corps service and similar international development work opportunities are highly professional and selective. PC Prep requires three specific activities that will strengthen your candidacy for the Peace Corps (or any other professional endeavor):
- Have your resume critiqued by someone in the Center for Career and Community Engagement.
- Attend a workshop or class on interview skills at the Center for Career and Community Engagement.
- Develop at least one significant leadership experience and be prepared to discuss it thoughtfully. For example, organizing a campus event, leading a work or volunteer project, or serving on the executive board of a student organization.
For example, serving as a Co-Convener of any one of Earlham’s 70 Student Clubs, serving on Earlham Student Government, leadership in Earlham College Model United Nations, serving as a teaching assistant on an Outdoor Education program.
You will be able to track these experiences with your adviser and the Director of Peace Corps Prep in AdviseStream.
