Our peer advisors (PAs) are students 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 Peer Advisor please call 315-859-4346. Appointments will take place at the Career and Life Outcomes Center, 3rd Floor, Bristol Center.
Want a Peer Advisor to contact you? Send a brief note and/or your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. A Peer Advisor will respond to find a time to meet within 48 hours.
