Employer Resources

We're in the process of extending offers to RPCVs that we met through the Peace Corps career fair and through our job posting on the Peace Corps website. It was very difficult to narrow down the field because everyone was so strong!
Mike Snyder,
Department of State

The Peace Corps’ goal is to offer your organization free recruitment access to a highly skilled, diverse, and continually renewed network of job-seeking returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs). We are committed to understanding your organization’s unique recruiting needs and we look forward to partnering with you to optimize your recruitment of our nearly 220,000 RPCVs. 

Peace Corps service equips Volunteers with skills in problem solving, global awareness, cross-cultural communication, and adaptability. Gain access to this pool of extremely competitive candidates through our free tools:

Job Postings

Our free job posting site, RPCV Career Link, averages over 100,000 unique views each month. Positions posted on this site are viewable by the public; however, we market RPCV Career Link postings exclusively to current and returned Peace Corps Volunteers and current Peace Corps staff. We recommend you post all your organization’s job openings on Career Link.

After posting your jobs, we can also help you increase your visibility to over 65,000 RPCVs through our career resources email list. Interested RPCVs currently receive daily automatic updates on newly posted jobs and one monthly email of “Hot Jobs.” 

RPCV Career Fairs 

Register at no cost to exhibit at any of the RPCV Career Fairs that the Peace Corps organizes in Washington, D.C. and around the country each year. Subscribe to our RPCV Employer emails and we’ll notify you when we’re accepting employer registrations for upcoming RPCV Career Fairs.

Information for Federal Hiring Mangers

Federal hiring managers can benefit from the special noncompetitive eligibility (NCE) hiring status that RPCVs are granted for one year after completing their Peace Corps service. Review this NCE Informational Booklet and this NCE guide from HR University and learn how to take advantage of this special hiring status to expedite your hiring processes and tap into the skilled RPCV network. Please review this document for a quick overview of the benefits and process for hiring using NCE.

Information Sessions with RPCVs

Contact Peace Corps if you’d like to organize an online or in-person event to recruit RPCVs to join your organization. Preference will be given to organizations that are promoting positions that are full-time, permanent, and salaried, and who are working in fields of broad interest to returned Peace Corps Volunteers.
