Career Peer Helpers
Peer Helper Services: Career Education Peer Helpers
The Career Peer Helpers are available for in-person and online appointments for the Winter 2023 semester. Peer Helpers can provide support for resumes, cover letters, mock interviews, LinkedIn, and mock faculty conversations. If you are new to the services of the Experiential Learning Hub and aren’t sure where to begin, book a ‘Start Here’ appointment with a Peer Helper! You can meet with a Peer Helper to learn about our resources and how we can best support you with your job search.
Please note that availability for walk-in appointments may be limited, so we encourage you to book an appointment.
Applications for graduate school or other further education should be seen by a Career Advisor, as Peer Helpers only assist with applications for employment or volunteering.
We are happy to provide two different ways to connect with a Career Peer Helper:

Please email firstname.lastname@example.org indicating the times you are available and the nature of your appointment, and we may be able to book you in for a time to meet with a Peer Helper on the same business day.
2. Email Correspondence
We recognize that rural internet connections, challenging living situations and other factors can be a barrier to meeting with a Peer Helper via video call. This is why we are also offering the option for you to email in your documents for feedback.
To receive feedback on your resume, cover letter or LinkedIn profile via email, please email email@example.com and a Peer Helper will reply with feedback in the comments of your document within two business days (excluding holidays and university closures).
