      I have applied to the general announcement for APCD programming and training
      officers (16 postings).

      Does anyone have any idea as to how the country assignments are made? Can
      you influence or express a preference? Or even find out what the potential
      postings are?

      With a husband who would also like meaningful work I am less flexible than I
      was as a PCV applicant!

      Thanks!

        Hi Liz,
         
        Per my understanding as a former APCD, APCD and PTO positions are all country-specific.  (As a side note, we didn't have a PTO in Malawi, but it's basically the sub-director of the office, overseeing both the programming (inc. APCDs) and training offices, and reporting to the CD.)  The only PC positions that are open to worldwide assignment are Volunteer and Country Director.
         
        Good luck!

          Re: [ujeni] RE: APCD country assignment process? Hi Deepa,

          I’ve seen other announcements for APCD/PTOs in the past that were country-specific, but I just applied to a general announcement that was non-specific/worldwide (it closed the 15th).  It did say that there are 16 postings.  It must be a new recruitment method (CDC just started doing something similar for international positions for public health advisors, but you could check off all the countries you would consider a posting in).

          Are there PTOs at both the country and regional-level?

            Hi Liz,
             
            Per my understanding as a former APCD, APCD and PTO positions are all country-specific.  (As a side note, we didn't have a PTO in Malawi, but it's basically the sub-director of the office, overseeing both the programming (inc. APCDs) and training offices, and reporting to the CD.)  The only PC positions that are open to worldwide assignment are Volunteer and Country Director.
             
            Good luck!
