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 positions are currently open for the 2021-2022 academic year. These student positions are remote during Fall Term (10-15 hrs/week) and may return to campus during Winter and Spring Terms (to be determined).

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
