Applications open for student jobs as peer career advisors

Students interested in helping their schoolmates advance towards their career goals — while learning the most up-to-date methods of job search — may apply through Sunday for paid positions as peer advisors in Career Development and Experiential Learning for the 2018-19 academic year.

The Peer Advising Program, launched in September 2017, trains students to provide career-related support and act as ambassadors across campus for the service, says career consultant Krista Kelly.

“The program is designed to help peers attain a set of well-defined core competencies overseen by professional staff members while providing support to fellow students and engaging in promotional events across campus,” she says.

She encourages faculty and staff to promote this paid opportunity to students who display excellent leadership and mentorship skills. Students are asked to submit an application through mySuccess by Sunday. Find more details on the program website.
