Peace Corps will be hiring soon for Recruiter positions in various locations across the United States. To be considered, an individual must have noncompetitive eligibility (NCE) and submit materials to the NCE job posting on USAjobs. Once you are added to the RPCV/RPCRV Non-Competitive certificate, you will receive notifications from hiring managers for open positions. Some of these are field-based positions, meaning you would work from your home, and others are office-based positions, which would require you to work from our HQ or one of the three regional offices. However, Peace Corps is currently in maximum telework flexibility due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Be sure to indicate “Volunteer Recruitment” as a job category for consideration.

A big thanks to everyone who participated in our Holiday zoom gathering yesterday!!  The event was a lot of fun, and it was so great to hear members from both our Gulf Coast group as well as the Miami group recounting stories from their Christmas pasts in their respective countries!  Let's aim to make this an annual event!
