What do peers do?

The Career Center Peer Advisors are here to help you out with your professional development. We are here to support, assist, and provide guidance for students in drop-in advising, workshops, and information sessions—all of which are designed to encourage your exploration of the career and academic opportunities available to you. If you have any questions, you can find the peers at Career Station every Wednesday, or at the Career Center during regular hours.

Check out our video from the past here


Career Station
Every Wednesday from 11 a.m. - 1:30 p.m., the peers will have a table near the Bell Tower. Come visit if you have any questions about resumes, online resources, upcoming events, and what the Career Center can offer you—or just drop by to say hello. The Career Peers are here to help, and we hope to see you soon!

Marcus Lou 

Major: Neuroscience

Year: Third Year

Career Goal: Neurologist 


I enjoy going to the gym, playing sports, traveling, and adventuring into the essence nature. As an ambitious undergraduate in pursuit of medical school, I am fascinated in how our brain influences our emotions, thought processes, and everyday behaviors. I aim to become a Neurologist who can treat disorders of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves.

The thing that I love most about working at the Career Center is knowing that at the end of the day, we are helping to make a difference. As a Peer Advisor, I am granted that opportunity to guide and assist students on their path towards success through hosting and aiding with workshops, career fairs, information sessions, and much more.

On top of the many resources and tools, there is much more to the Career Center than what meets the eye, and it is our staff. From career counselors to special program coordinators to employer relations, they are nothing short of amazing through their kindness, compassion, and dedication that they devote towards helping students succeed.

Whether you want to learn more about your career path, are unsure on how to write a resume, want to learn the keys to a successful interview, job searching, or are unsure of the steps to take after graduating, I encourage you to drop by our center, and we would be more than happy to help you out!




Martin Bazua

Major: Business Administration, Management

Year: Third Year

Career Goal: Management


My interests includes sports, YouTube, video games, and movies. My passion is to help others, friends or strangers, and be involved somehow through a positive way. I am determined to pursue a Master's in Business Administration. My professional goal is to hold a management position for a company, non-profit or for profit, that may offer opportunities for individuals to pursue a higher education. 

My favorite aspect of working at the Career Center is the interaction between our staff and the students. Our staff genuinely care about career and graduate advancement for students. I am grateful to share this interaction with students as well because it furthers my professional growth and career interests. I want to help those who may not know about the available opportunities on-campus. If I could market these opportunities through media and promotion, then I believe it will benefit our student body. 

I encourage every student on-campus to visit the Career Center at least once before they finish their time at UCR. You may be surprised at what you could discover while talking to our wonderful student employees or with our fantastic Career Center staff. 

I am excited for what our students can achieve in the future. I hope to meet you all soon!

Career Goal: Health Care Executive


I enjoy hanging out with my friends and family, going to concerts, and watching movies. I aspire to become a Healthcare Executive and going to graduate school. My interest in going into the health sector has been shaped by learning about the health policies that affect communities and other factors that contribute to the access of health care.

The Career Center has given me the tools and resources I need to begin my search and improvement for personal and career growth. Whether you know of your career plan and how to get there or are still thinking about it, I encourage you to visit the Career Center! Take advantage of all the resources and activities on campus, you’ll never know where and what activity will spark your interest and define your next college or career move! Allow yourself that opportunity to grow, to experience, and to learn something new. You’ll be surprised when these skills will come in handy!
