Career Peer Advisors

The Career Peer Advisors (CPAs) are a team of student employees, who are trained to provide 1:1 drop-in advising to their peers on the basics of career-related topics. CPAs “specialize” or focus in a career community that aligns with their own career interests:

  • Exploration
  • Arts & Arts Administration
  • Marketing, Communication, Journalism & Publishing
  • Accounting, Banking & Finance
  • Management, Operations & Entrepreneurship
  • Tech, Programming, IT & Data Science
  • Government, Advocacy, Policy & Law
  • Education & Human Services
  • Public Health, Health Administration, Medicine
  • Environmental & Sustainability
  • Biotechnology, Scientific Research Engineering
In addition to 1:1 advising, they work to gather resources and interview professionals in their career communities to gain hands-on insight and knowledge in the field(s). Additionally, CPAs receive intensive weekly training and professional development throughout the semester to best serve students.

CPAs can advise students from any class year; however, they meet with first and second year students prior to their first meeting with one of our full-time career advisors in order to help them make the most out of their appointment. They also respond to inquiries and review resumes using the careerpeeradvisors@wheatoncollege.edu email address.
