If you are an AmeriCorps VISTA alum and/or a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer and you would like advice on translating your service experience to the job market, this workshop is for you!

Register now to attend the joint AmeriCorps VISTA and Returned Volunteer Services career event in Seattle, WA where you will have the opportunity to practice telling your professional story to a variety of audiences, and learn how to create a dynamite resume and cover letter during the morning career workshops. 

You'll also have the chance to chat with regional employers representing the public, private, and nonprofit sectors at the afternoon career fair, and the day will end with a special opportunity to connect with other VISTA alumni and RPCVs (Returned Peace Corps Volunteers) at a jointly sponsored networking social taking place at the nearby Diller Room.

Please note: Because of the many opportunities in the federal government, first-year RPCVs and VISTA alumni with noncompetitive eligibility are especially encouraged to attend but all alumni are welcome. This event is intended for alumni - not currently serving VISTA members.

SEAPAX (Seattle RPCV group) and the local AmeriCorps Alums chapter are hosting a post-event social at 5 p.m. at The Diller Room, just blocks away from our venue. Current AmeriCorps VISTA members are welcome to join for the post-event social.

We hope to see you there!
