Career Peer Helpers

Peer Helper Services: Career Education Peer Helpers

The Peer Helpers are available for appointments during the fall and winter semesters and are now on break for the summer. They will return on the first day of class on September 8. 

To receive support with your job search this summer, you can book an appointment with a Career Advisor in Experience Guelph, by selecting Career > Appointments from the left-hand menu.

Winter 2020 Peer Helpers

Beginning again in September, our fully trained and supervised Peer Helpers can assist students with the following:

  • Resume critiques
  • Cover letter critiques
  • Experiential Learning Opportunities
  • LinkedIn profile critiques 
  • Mock Interviews
  • Mock Faculty Conversations 

Mock faculty conversations are similar to mock interviews, with the goal of helping students practice discussing opportunities for research or getting to know a professor. The Experiential Learning Opportunities appointment is for students wanting to get connected with for-credit and not-for-credit experiential learning and aren’t sure where to start.

Please note: Mock interviews with a Peer Helper are for undergraduate students in preparation for job interviews. Graduate students and those looking for help preparing for interviews related to further education can attend a drop-in session with a Career Advisor to request a scheduled mock interview.
