I am not looking for the PC experience to start a career, but it does sound a little harsh to call it a career ender. At 65, departing for Namibia in just over 100 days, I look at it as a rich "Third Chapter" experience. The US economy is still fluctuating, full of young bright people coming up, with the continuing rapid changing technology requiring constant learning. I think anyone who takes a break of over two years might find difficulty in just stepping back in to the job race.If my financial situation requires that I seek work again after my service, I hope and suspect that this service would be a plus, but the advantages will most likely be personal. For example, I suspect that what I see as a "need" or requirement for a good life may change.
Check out Open Group Peace Corps 50+ Facebook!!! Fantastic supportive group for Peace Corps applicants, PCV, and RPCV. Yeah!!!!!
I truly believe that perception is 99% reality. For example: I will be entering the PC tat 55 years young. I don't look at as a negative impact to my career path. Instead, I look at it as a new career path.
