I sent in my updated resume earlier (maybe a couple of weeks ago) and changed my departure date (from July 1st to August 1st)
Today I received an email from the Placement Assistance, crazy how the simplest email can have me SUPER excited
I hope this email finds you well.
I am writing from the Peace Corps Placement and Assessment Office where I have recently completed the preliminary review of your file. I would like to request several additional items from you in order to complete your file before I pass it along to your Placement Specialist for a final review.
1. Please submit a copy of your final transcript for your bachelor’s degree. Please make sure the transcript shows:
- Your name
- The name of the institution
- The degree you received and the date it was conferredIt can be an unofficial transcript, as long as it reflects the required information. It can be an unofficial transcript, as long as it reflects the required information. Please email or fax this document to the Business Desk at the number listed (Fax #:202-692-1897). If you intend to email your transcript, please scan it and send it as a PDF. We cannot accept transcripts that have been pasted into an email or a Microsoft Word document.
We will continue with the placement process without your final transcript, but will ultimately need it before you could depart for a potential Peace Corps assignment. Please do not try to mail the transcript via U.S. Post since it may take as long as a month to get through screening in a federal facility. If you must mail the information, please send it via Federal Express.
Within 5 minutes of receiving the email (thank you technology for sending all emails to my phone), I wrote back a response. It pretty much stated that I do not graduate until June 10th and will not be able to send a transcript that shows the date my degree was received until then. I asked if she wanted an unofficial transcript that just shows the classes I have taken until I get my degree. Can't wait until I get another response :)In an effort to continue to this process in a timely manner it is greatly appreciated if you respond to the above requests within 1 week.
There was something else I wanted to tell you guys but forgot :) Enjoy your weekend!!
Update: I remember now!!! Has anyone ever played the Peace Corps game that is supposed to simulate a volunteer's experience. I have! Especially in the beginning of the process.
