Career and Professional Development (CPD) provides resources and experiences to help students leverage their Jesuit education to achieve their full potential. CPD’s programs, staff, and resources help LMU students and alumni:

  • Identify their values, interests, talents and skills
  • Understand how their skills relate to professional life
  • Explore a wide range of careers that reflect their values, interests, and skills
  • Develop and pursue a career or academic plan for life after LMU

Peer Advisors are an integral component in providing vocational discernment and career services to students and alumni. Peer Advisors also provide assistance to virtual and in-person industry-specific programs, employer brand awareness sessions, panel discussions, professional development workshops, and much more. If you are excited to be a part of our dynamic and growing team, we encourage you to apply on Workday by Friday, March 10 at 11:59 p.m. (PST).

    Peer Advisors welcome students to Career and Professional Development (CPD) and assist them with a range of activities, including resume and cover letter reviews, exploring internships and off-campus jobs on Handshake, and applying for employment opportunities.

    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; assist students with resume and cover letters; help them navigate searches for jobs, internships, and volunteer opportunities; help students network with alumni (for informational interviewing/job shadowing), and work with them on identifying resources and guides for all of their vocational and career needs. Additional responsibilities will be determined based on the industry area, as well as other duties befitting applicant’s specific areas of interest in career services.
