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–Arts/Arts Administration; Accounting, Banking, and Finance; Management, Operations, and Entrepreneurship; Government, Advocacy, Policy, and Law; Education and Human Services; Public Health, Health Administration, and Medicine; Biotech, Scientific Research, and Engineering–that aligns with their own career interests. 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 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.
