Peer Career Advisors
Peer Career Advisors (PCAs) are student volunteers who play a valuable role in the Career Services office. They are trained to assist fellow IC students with the following career topics:
- Resume and cover letter editing and development
- Job and internship searching
- Interview preparation
- Graduate school search and application process
- Using our online resources such as eRecruiting, the Alumni Directory, and Career Shift
PCAs are generally available to assist on a drop-in basis between the hours of 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and Fridays from 12:00 to 3:00 p.m. when classes are in session. Stop by Career Services to receive help from one of your peers!
Interested in becoming a PCA?
New PCAs are hired each spring for the following fall semester, since annual PCA training occurs the week before fall classes begin. Prior experience in career advising is NOT required.

Interviews will take place during the few weeks following spring break.
