About the organization
The Peace Corps is a U.S. federal government agency dedicated to building and sustaining relationships with global communities through the service of our dedicated Volunteers.
The Peace Corps ranks third overall among 28 small agencies in the Partnership for Public Service’s 2019 Best Places to Work in the Federal Government rankings. It's a great place to work where your talents and experience can help make a difference in the lives of people around the world.
Recruiters are the sales force of Peace Corps, working in the Office of Recruitment and Diversity and striving to ensure that our volunteers represent a cross-section of the United States. Recruiters are responsible for strategic outreach on campuses and in communities to identify and develop a robust pipeline of qualified candidates for service. Recruiters also work with community and school contacts to share information and promote Peace Corps within their territory, and they engage directly with interested candidates to move them towards submitting their Peace Corps application.
As a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, we recognize that you may have gained relevant skills in both your Peace Corps service and in other professional experiences. You will be evaluated based on your experience, education, and training as described in your resume. Prior experience connecting with underrepresented groups is preferred. Qualified candidates should be comfortable with: public speaking; working in both virtual and in-person settings; leading and organizing events; providing prompt and professional service; outreach to new contacts; and collaborating with fellow recruiters as needed.
