Meet our Peer Career Advisors
The Career Center has a small team of Peer Career Advisors that are available for your consultation during office hours at both the Lincoln Park and Loop campuses. If you feel like you’d rather talk and relate to someone your own age, these students are experts of the Career Center’s services and how you can optimize them while here at DePaul.
Don’t feel like leaving your room? It doesn’t matter, if you’ve got an internet connection. The peer advisors are available by phone at (312) 362-5415. Or you can contact them through instant messaging (on AIM and Yahoo! under the username dpucareercenter and on MSN under the username email@example.com). OR you can contact them by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
About a week ago, I instant messaged the peer advisors over AIM to get some advice. I got a response within one minute (impressive, considering sometimes even my best of friends don’t respond that fast…). The answer was thorough and the advisor was friendly, even over the internet.
These students know all about DePaul’s recruiting, campus employment, job search, resumes, interviews, and graduate school search. So if you’ve got a quick question about careers, consider talking things over with them.
