Peer Advising

Peer Advising Drop-In

What is the Career Peer Advising Program?

Career Development and Experiential Learning (CDEL) launched a peer advising program in August 2017 to allow us to better support students with expanded drop-in hours and readily available assistance. With the guidance of CDEL staff, Peer Advisors (PAs) are a vital resource for students in all areas of career development and job search. Our PAs are thoroughly trained to advise students from all disciplines in career-related topics and provide career coaching sessions. PAs are also ambassadors for CDEL, leading campus-wide promotional initiatives and supporting events.

Fall 2020 Peer Advising Drop-In Hours (September 8 - December 10)

Monday to Thursday from 10am - 2pm 

Join us in the Virtual Workshop and Advising Room on the CDEL Blackboard organization site and expect to spend 10-15 minutes with a trained PA to receive tips, resources, and recommended next steps for:

  • Resume & Cover Letter Writing
  • Job Searching
  • Interview Skills
  • Career Planning

See below for instructions on how to join the Blackboard site to gain access.

  • At any time during drop in, you can access the room in the menu on the left, and select the session by date.
  • The room will be open 15 minutes before drop-in hours start.
  • There are no drop in hours during reading week, the exam period, or when the University is closed.
