Employment After AmeriCorps
Employers of National Service connects AmeriCorps and Peace Corps alumni with employers from the private, public, and nonprofit sectors. Through this initiative, employers have increased access to a dedicated, highly qualified, and mission-oriented pool of potential employees, and national service alumni have additional opportunities to apply their skills in the workplace.
President Obama launched Employers of National Service at AmeriCorps 20th Anniversary to recognize the valuable skills gained by the 900,000 Americans who have participated in AmeriCorps since 1994 and the 215,000 who have participated in the Peace Corps since 1961.
AmeriCorps Alums Virtual Career Fairs: connects public, private, and nonprofit employers interested in having AmeriCorps alumni on their teams with our highly skilled national service alumni pipeline. All employers at the fair will have open jobs and recruiters available to talk one-on-one with alumni from the comfort of their home, office, smartphone, or tablet. Many of the employers participating in this event will be Employers of National Service.
AmeriCorps Alums Career Webinars: Each month, AmeriCorps Alums hosts a one-hour online professional development webinar or event that aims to improve your knowledge or skills in a variety of career topics. Topics include a wide array of subjects, ranging from leadership and resume assistance to career panels and graduate school.
