Career Peers

Career Peers provide resume, cover letter and LinkedIn support to Brescia students and work closely with the SLC to deliver career-related programming, such as workshops, mock interviews and events. This peer program emphasizes a student-driven, peer-to-peer support approach to career development, offered through a customized one-on-one setting. 

Career Peers spend between 3-5 hours each week, from September-April, offering drop-in hours and programming. Durning the year, the Career Peers work closely with the SLC engaging in their own career development via bi-week team meetings. 

Who can access this career support? 

All Brescia students are eligible to attend Career Peer drop-in hours and career-related programming. 

How do I become a Career Peer?

Career Peer recruitment takes place during the #bestudentlife campaign in February-March of each academic year. For more information on the position and how to apply, contact the Student Life Centre at bucstudent.life@uwo.ca.  

What can I expect? 

Career Peers are trained in everything from resume layout and formatting, to using accomplishment statements to highlight your skills and your experiences. Not only that, but you can talk through maximizing your online potential (hello, LinkedIn) and even start to tackle those big questions (how can I narrow down my options?) when you’re having trouble getting started.

Stay tuned for our Career Peer hours in September 2020.
