What is the Peer Program all about?
The Volunteer Career Services Peer Program offers a unique opportunity for students to get involved in the Faculty of Management and to help fellow students learn about Career Services and the various resources we have available. Peer Ambassadors and Peer Advisors are selected prior to the fall and winter terms and then follow an interactive training program. Peers help us throughout the academic year with various initiatives such as reviewing resumes, facilitating workshops, hosting drop-in sessions, and participating in employer events. Students in the program start off as Ambassadors and can later apply to become Advisors. Through this program students develop skills beneficial in helping them succeed in their personal career preparation.
I see the Peer- Advisor program as a great way to give back and make a contribution in our student society by providing individual advising for interview and resume building to students in their first year. I also see the program as an opportunity to improve my interpersonal and communication skills.
Before becoming a Peer Advisor this year, I started as a Peer Ambassador after I was recommended by a professor. By helping other students, I was able to gain numerous skills myself, so I stayed with the program. Being a Peer Advisor enables me to share my experiences and give feedback to students who are in need of help and who doesn't love helping others? I hope to be a great supporter for everyone who visits to get their resume and cover letter reviewed.
