Peer Career Advisors

Peer Career Advisors (PCAs) are a group of student volunteers who are selected through an application and interview process during each Spring semester. They serve as ambassadors to undergraduates and play a valuable role in supporting the Center for Career Development (CCD). 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

  • How to use 12twenty

  • Internship & job search basics

  • Using CCD online resources (Focus2, Firsthand, etc.)

  • Understanding CCD services

Each residential college has its own team of PCAs, so they are easily accessible and available to answer your questions in person or through email, even when the CCD is closed for the night. Check out the 2023-2024 PCAs here or on the poster in your college's servery.

Interested In Becoming a PCA for 2024 - 2025?

We look for committed students who have a genuine interest in learning more about career topics and assisting their peers. If this sounds like you, being a Peer Career Advisor (PCA) can give you a great experience working with a team, while also building your leadership, communication, and career development skills. We select new PCAs each Spring semester through an application and interview process.

PCA Applications will open Spring 2024 on 12twenty!
