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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
