Apply to be a Peer Career Advisor

From: Career and Professional Development

Are you looking for a way to make a meaningful impact on campus? Career and Professional Development (CPD) is looking for first- and second-year students to join the spring 2022 cohort of the Peer Career Advisor (PCA) Program.

Peer career advisors are undergraduate students who are trained to assist with a variety of areas in the career planning process, to have a strong understanding of the available CPD resources, and to help guide students based on individual needs. Main responsibilities include advising, outreach and education, and project work. PCAs are highly valued members of the CPD team.
