The Career Centre is currently hiring Career Peer Educators (CPEs) for the 2018-19 academic year! CPEs are current students who work part-time at the Career Centre to provide a variety of career-related services.
CPEs are critical members of the Career Centre team and work alongside a supportive and dynamic team of full-time staff and peers. Working at the Career Centre helps you to build transferable skills (like interpersonal communication and organization), make connections, and expand your knowledge of career-related information and services.
You will receive a week of training at the end of August, as well as ongoing on-the-job training and support. As a CPE you also have access to many of the Career Centre’s programs and services. So working as a CPE might just give you a head start on your own career.
Here are a few of the things you will do:
Prepare and conduct individual advising appointments, including:
- Career management and work search
- Resume and cover letter critiques
- Interview strategies and practice interviews
- LinkedIn profile critiques
Create and deliver presentations on topics like:
