AU's Career Peer Advisors!

Did you know that your CAS Peer Advisors are not the only peer advisors on campus? American University's Career Center also has 4 peer advisors of their own who are available to meet with students to go over resumes or cover letters or even just to help familiarize yourself with the resources the Career Center has to offer its students.

The Career Peer Advisors also offer demonstrations on how to best utilize resources like AU CareerWeb and Resume Builder to get you ready for job hunting or an interview. Like your CAS Peer Advisors, these current AU students can be a great resource when trying to find internships or places to volunteer in differing areas of interest as some of the best advice can come from current students and what they have experienced themselves. They can also put you in contact with professors who may know of great opportunities in their field as well as getting you prepared to be competitive for the position. They are also knowledgable about opportunities that students have enjoyed in the past and can therefore advise based on personal experiences from other students.

The Career Peer Advisors can be easily accessed in the Career Center (5th floor of Butler Pavilion) on a walk in basis so you don't even need to make an appointment. Click here to view their desk hours!
