  • Join your fellow Washington-based RPCVs at Haydee's Restaurant in Mt. Pleasant for this fun social event!

  • How do you make sure you’re asking for the right salary? What can you do to get the best possible offer from a prospective employer? What are some ways to overcome common obstacles like nerves or answering salary questions too soon?

    Develop your salary negotiation strategies now in an interactive workshop! You will learn best practices in conducting market research, overcoming obstacles during the application process, and negotiating a final offer. 

    About the facilitator: An RPCV from South Africa, Dr. Ronda Ansted worked in many positions in the non-profit and international development field--including business development and recruiting--before starting her private practice, Be the Change Career Consulting. Her struggles with the job search when she was a new RPCV inspired her to work with people who want to make the world a better place, and to leverage their strengths to make meaningful and rewarding contributions to society. She is the creator of My Career Design Studio, an interactive, gamified, career coaching app based on positive psychology and neuroscience, with an international user-base!
