2014-2015 Peer Advisors & Peer Presenters

Our Peer Advisors (PAs) are students like you who have been trained to critique cover letters and resumes. Whether you have never written a resume or you desire a proof-reading of your final draft, PAs are available during both day and evening hours to meet with you one-on-one. In addition to helping to write and critique resumes and cover letters, upon referral from a professional counselor PA's are trained to assist with learning how to network, how to help students to begin to look for career-related experience(s), and can offer advice on how to prepare for basic interviews. To schedule an appointment with a PA, please call the Career Center front desk at 315-859-4346 or stop by Bristol Campus Center, 3rd floor.

2014-2015 Peer Presenters

Our Peer Presenters (PPs) are students like you who have been trained on career development topics such as writing resumes and cover letters, networking, and interviewing. In addition to facilitating workshops and coordinating programs such as the How I Got My Internship lunch series, Linkedin Photobooth, and First Year Smoothie, they serve as liaisons to groups around campus to coordinate workshops. You will most often find these students hard at work in KJ, Sadove, Bristol, or the Science Center. If you would like to request a specific workshop for your student group, email Janine Oliver at joliver@hamilton.edu.
