Peer Advisors

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.

The Peer Advisors strive to provide a service that is helpful, insightful, and beneficial for your career preparation and future success. We offer the following resume and cover letter review services:

  • First time review for U0 and U1 students (part of the mandatory Career Services onboarding process)
  • Repeat reviews for students who wish to refine their resume further after their first meeting with an Advisor
  • Basic support and advice over email
  • Advising based on major/concentration stream, and in French


For more information about becoming a Peer Advisor or Peer Ambassador, please contact the Peer Advisor Program Manager Julia Riscaldino by email.
