Questionnaires seem to be the Peace Corps favorite thing in the entire world.
I have answered more questionnaires than necessary at this point in the process. Between the long application (pre-application re-haul), the two application essays, the resume that we had to submit, edit and re-submit 3x, the “aspiration statement,” skills addendum, the teachers training quiz, handbook and 4MAT lessons, the host-family placement questionnaire, and pre-service training arrival questionnaire. I am mentally done with answering the same questions over and over.
There are only so many times I can explain what my skills are, what my hobbies are, what my job experience is, and why I joined the Peace Corps.
I feel like I’m applying to a dating website. But then I remember that the Peace Corps is a government agency, and just like all government agencies, paperwork and asking infinite questions really are their favorite things in the world.
