University of Montevallo Interview on Peace Jobs

This past Tuesday (10/13/20) I was interviewed by faculty from the peace and justice program at the University of Montevallo in Montevallo, AL about careers in the field. Students are using my book Peace Jobs: A Student’s Guide to Starting a Career Working for Peace (IAP 2016) as a resource.

I was pleased to talk with faculty members and program coordinators Jennifer Rickel and Meredith Tetloff about how students can pursue peacebuilding work after graduation. The recording will be used in a future class this semester.

Here is the interview. I appreciate being permitted to share this.
