Peer Advisors

Come work with us!

Make college more than a classroom! Get paid while you engage with your peers at PCC to assist with exploring majors, careers, transfer universities, scholarships, job search and more.

The Peer Advisors are a dynamic, diverse group of current PCC student leaders who work in Career Services. Peer Advisor applications are currently closed for the 2021-2022 academic year. Please check back in the spring when we tend to do recruitment for the upcoming academic year.

The Career Peer Advisor application has more details including eligibility and a link to the full job description.

Peer Advisors go through extensive training in order to:

  • Connect with other students and help them navigate the college system
  • Administer career assessments and help students to explore majors and career options
  • Teach students to use MyPCC, register for classes approved by an advisor, access college resources, and plan a class schedule
  • Help students to research college majors, transfer schools, and scholarships
  • Sponsor events and promote the center's services across campus so that all students have equal access to career exploration
  • Help students locate and apply for job opportunities
