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 (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 Handshake
Job and internship basics
Using our online resources (Focus2, Vault, etc.)
Understanding CCD services
Each residential college has their own set 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 our 2018-2019 PCAs¬†here¬†or on the poster in your college commons!
We look for committed students who have a genuine interest in learning more about career topics and in assisting their peers. If this sounds like you, being a Peer Career Advisor can give you a great experience. We select new PCAs each spring through an application and interview process. Be on the lookout for the application on Handshake in late February.
