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! 


Office Hours

The Career Center Peer Advisors hold office hours each week to assist students with career related questions.  Stop by and connect with a peer advisor who might have  a similar background, major or career aspiration as you.  For more information about each peer advisor and their office hours, please see their specialties below!
