Hey everyone!

This is my first time posting on the group. First off, I want to say thank you for everyone who has shared their experiences and advice through this website - it is invaluable!

This week I had my interview and I went in so prepared and excited to speak to the recruiter. I heard great things about this conversation and that it would most likely be like speaking to an old friend about why you want to join. Unfortunately, the woman I spoke to seemed disconnected, bored with my answers, not energetic, and not interested in me or my passion for joining. I am really worried that this will affect my application process negatively and that I will not be nominated.

Has anyone had a similar experience? Or know of someone who went through this situation and did not get nominated? I know I could contribute so much to the Peace Corps and I believe that I am qualified. However, I feel as though she did not take that into consideration.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!!



My interview was over the phone, I didn't even get to do a face to face. The guy was nice though. I felt like I personally didn't do a good job in presenting my strengths during the interview, but I was accepted! Good luck to you!
