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 @ 859.4346 or stop by Bristol Campus Center, 3rd floor.
