Why meet with a Career Peer Advisor?
"I like meeting with the Career Peer Advisors because they’re senior students who’ve been in my shoes and can offer a student perspective by sharing their experiences. They helped me choose my option, decide if I should pursue Co-op, and they suggested how I could make the most out of my undergrad experience. They also provided resume, cover letter, and interview tips to help me become a more competitive applicant." - Jennifer T., Marketing Student
