I am wondering what to expect when I get passed medical clearance- Will a letter come in the mail with my assignment, or will a Placement Officer contact me to discuss where I might be going first and ask for a bit of my input? I completely understand I cannot pick where I want to go, but am curious to know if I have any voice in it at all... Thanks!

In your application and in your interview with a recruiter, there are opportunities to indicate placement preferences (sector, geographical, etc.).

PC tries to match your skills sets with host country needs at the time of application. They'll take your preferences into account, however, the skill-need match definitely takes priority. It's always best to remain flexible.

Once cleared, you'll receive an invitation for a specific country and assignment sector or "job", which you then accept or not.
