Postponed: Advancing Your Career: Approaches, Possibilities, and Dilemmas

28 Sep 2019
9:30am - 12:30pm PDT

We have to postpone this event, but thanks to Jerry for his work on this.


This workshop is an opportunity to talk with other returned Peace Corps volunteers about managing and developing your career. Bring your questions, your hopes and dreams, doubts and worries, and that which calls to you. We will focus on asking questions and exploring your personal options, for example:

  • What exactly do we mean by “career”;
  • What are some strategies for seeking a promotion;
  • How can changing one’s job or even career be more of an asset and less a
  • liability;
  • Is being self-employed a job or ones career?

We will work together to define specific approaches and action plans, and provide tools and strategies as needed.
