ME&A Excited to Meet Returned Peace Corps Volunteers at Upcoming Career Fair

Recently Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCVs) seeking their next career move or considering their next steps are invited to visit ME&A’s career booth during the U.S. Peace Corps’ career fair on Thursday, June 20, 2024, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Come and meet ME&A Project Coordinator Kenneth “Ken” Goughnour, one of ME&A’s team staffing the booth at the event at Peace Corps Headquarters. Mr. Goughnour himself was recruited at a previous Peace Corps job fair.

“It feels a bit full circle – staffing ME&A’s booth at the Peace Corps Career Fair where I first met my future colleagues!” said Mr. 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. “In the almost a year since I joined ME&A, I’ve served as a project coordinator on multiple USAID- and U.S. State Department-funded evaluations, conducted field work in three countries in Southeast Asia, and have helped increase the number of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers working at ME&A! I hope you’ll stop by the booth and say hello!”

Mr. Goughnour along with ME&A Director of Human Resources Lizette Laserna Salvador; Project Coordinator Alexander Keninitz; and 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 once again attend the Peace Corps Job Fair and have the opportunity to meet returning Peace Corps volunteers and discuss their career aspirations,” said Ms. Salvador. “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 plans to gauge your career fit. Let’s chat!”
