Three Things UW Students Should Know
to Launch Their International Career with the Peace Corps
Earlier this week, Universum announced the Peace Corps is a “Top Ideal Employer” according to a survey of college students and young professionals. With benefits including living and working abroad, learning a new language, receiving a living stipend with medical/dental benefits, and student loan deferment, it’s easy to see why the federal agency is an excellent way to launch an international career.
UW students interested in serving a community overseas with the Peace Corps should take note of the following dates and activities:
(1) Apply By Friday, April 1
(2) Attend An Info Session
Learn about volunteer experiences, have your questions answered, and gain tips to guide you through the application process:
Wednesday, April 27 • 5 to 6 p.m.
Smith Hall, 205
(3) Stay Connected
