Peer Career Advisors

Peer Career Advisors (PCAs) are a group of student volunteers who are selected through an application and interview process. They serve as ambassadors to undergraduates and play a valuable role in supporting the Center for Career Development. PCAs reinforce the knowledge, skills, and resources offered through the CCD. PCAs are specially trained to assist you with the following topics:

  • Resume and cover letter reviews
  • Job and internship basics
  • Using our online resources (Handshake, Optimal Resume, Vault, etc.)
  • Understanding CCD services

Each residential college is represented, so PCAs are easily accessible and available to answer your questions in person or through email.
