ME&A Eager to Connect With Returned Peace Corps Volunteers at Virtual Career Fair

Recently Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) looking for their next career move or simply not sure what their next step will be are invited to stop by ME&A’s virtual career booth at the U.S. Peace Corps’ virtual career fair Thursday, January 25, 2024, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

“I’m always happy to connect with other RPCVs, build community, and work toward a prosperous and more inclusive future for the Peace Corps,” said ME&A Project Coordinator Kenneth “Ken” Goughnour who served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Benin between 2013 and 2015 and also serves as the volunteer community engagement and outreach director for the Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of Washington, D.C. (RPCV/W), contributing additional networking expertise to support and guide RPCVs at job fairs.

Mr. Goughnour along with ME&A Director of Human Resources Lizette Laserna Salvador and ME&A Office Administrative Assistant Dulce Alanna Lejarde will staff the booth and discuss how Peace Corps experience provides an excellent background for ME&A’s USAID, U.S. Department of State, and World Bank projects worldwide.

“I am excited to have the opportunity to meet wonderful professionals such as those attending this event,” Ms. Salvador. said. “You can chat with me to learn about ME&A’s job opportunities or ask me to share my experiences in international development. We can exchange information on your work experiences and career aspirations to gauge your career fit. Let’s chat!”

ME&A has several vacancies and hopes to hire even more returned Peace Corps volunteers. Besides Mr. Goughnour, ME&A’s Chief Development Officer Lenoure Recanatini and ME&A’s long-time former Vice President for Marketing and Business Development Loren Schulze, Ph.D., also started their careers with the Peace Corps along with dozens of other ME&A employees and consultants over the past 30 years.
