If you're reading this in preparation for your upcoming Peace Corps interview, CONGRATULATIONS! You've made it this far in the application process, you're doing pretty good for yourself. Peace Corps staff are impressed with what they know about you so far, all you have to do now is continue to show them why they need you to be a part of the Peace Corps family.
The interview process lasted about 60-90 minutes. Mine was about 90 minutes (so make sure you're somewhere comfortable and quiet). The interviewer will go over a few Peace Corps expectations and logistics, and then the majority of the time will be you answering questions drawn from your work/volunteer experiences (they would like you to speak about long term (4+ months) experiences). The rest of the time, the interviewee will speak a little about their experience and give you time to ask questions.
This is where I share my journey in the Peace Corps. The contents of this blog are mine personally and do not reflect any position of the U.S. government or the Peace Corps.
