I wasn’t quite ready for a desk job when I was finishing up school. A bunch of my classmates were going into I-Banking and management consulting jobs, and I just wasn’t ready to sit behind a desk. I wanted to go out in the world, and I figured it was a good time to see what else was out there. I’ve been very fortunate over the course of my life, and I wanted to give back in some way. If you look at the opportunities that combine doing something on your own and a project that was yours, traveling, giving back, and not a desk job, Peace Corps actually comes up to the top of that list pretty quickly. And it certainly did all that!
