Organizations Targeting RPCV Skills
Employers of National Service
Employers of National Service (EONS) works to connect individuals who have participated in national service with leading employers in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors to create hiring, recruitment, and advancement opportunities. Through this initiative, national service alumni are able to apply the skills built from their service experience in the workplace, while employers gain access to a highly qualified, hardworking, and dedicated group of potential employees. The initiative was started by President Barack Obama on September 12, 2014 to honor the 20th anniversary of AmeriCorps. Look for the hashtags #ServiceEmployers and #NationalService.
