Fall is application time for many competitive career opportunities and the deadlines can sneak up on you. Here are some of the application dates coming up for popular programs that you’ll want to be aware of:
Peace Corps — October 1, 2011 Priority Deadline
If you want to leave in fall 2012, the October 1st priority date is recommended. Applications will continue to be accepted past this date, but the program encourages applying earlier. You can meet Peace Corps representatives at their October 12 information session and at the Career Fair on October 26.
Teach for America – October 26, 2011
This is the 3rd of 5 deadlines (the next dates are in January and February), but the sooner you apply the sooner you’ll have an answer.
