    Peer Advisors welcome students to Career and Professional Development (CPD) and assist them with a range of activities, including exploring majors, perusing internships and jobs, and applying to graduate school.

    Peer Advisors play an integral role in orienting students to CPD’s vast resources.  They train students on Handshake, CPD’s online career management tool; advising on choosing a major assisting students with resume and cover letters; help them navigate searches for jobs, internships, and volunteer opportunities; help students network with alumni (informational interviewing/job shadowing), and work with them on identifying electronic and print resources for all of their vocational and career needs. Additional responsibilities will be determined based on the specialty area, as well as other duties befitting applicant’s specific areas of interest in the field of Career Services.


Graduate Assistants (GA's) are required to attend (and will be paid for) all training sessions. CPD provides GA's with expertise, both through intensive workshops before the academic year begins, and throughout the year via monthly topical meetings. Mandatory training sessions will be held in August prior to classes beginning.
