Interview tips from the Peace Corps

“Congratulations!” the Peace Corps interview request reads – you have come one step closer to making a dream of service come true.

So you sign up for an interview time, patiently await the confirmation, read about how to stand out, even prepare professional attire for the video interview and set a reminder to show up early.

However, this is not all it takes. As you see in the request, underneath “Interview Tips,” your placement officer told you that they will:

-Ask about past and long-term experiences


-That you should try to share different experiences for each of these six subjects (an experience with people from a different culture; a time working in an unstructured environment; an experience teaching, tutoring or mentoring; when you failed to reach a goal that was within your control; etc.).

Now what? Find out more about how they suggest to handle these interviews!
