Peer Career Advisors
Peer Career Advisors (PCAs), are student volunteers who play a valuable role in supporting the office staff. They are trained to assist students with the following career topics:
- Resume and cover letter development
- Career decision making
- Job and internship search basics
- Graduate school search and application process
- Using our online resources such as eRecruiting, Alumni Online Community and Career Shift
PCAs are generally available to assist on a drop-in basis between the hours of 12:00 and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, when classes are in session during the Fall and Spring semesters. Stop by Career Services to receive help from one of your peers!
Interested in becoming a PCA?
New PCAs are hired each spring semester for the following fall semester, since annual PCA training occurs the week before fall classes begin. Prior experience in career advising is NOT required.
