Career Mentors

Peer-Led Career Advising

Career Mentors are undergraduate students who coach, mentor, advise, and guide their peers through career decisions. The 2018-19 team includes 17 Career Mentors from diverse academic programs and backgrounds. Career Mentors participate in a competitive application and hiring process, 50 hours of training over the summer, and weekly training and supervision throughout the year.

The Career Studio has had the opportunity to share our innovative model of peer mentoring to national audiences through the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) and the Mountain Pacific Association of Colleges and Employers (MPACE).

"I see the Career Studio as a unique opportunity to demonstrate my leadership abilities with the numerous positions I have held in Student Government, Greek Life, Honor Societies, and various social institutions. When it comes to being a leader in daily settings, the idea, thought processes, and success of others are always my number one priorities. Individuals should feel comfortatble in their skin, and - as a leader - we are given that duty to establish a welcoming atmosphere."

"My advice to other college students would be: it's so okay to not have a plan, to stray from a plan, or to throw it all out. Make mistakes and make a hundred more because this is the time to do it all."

"The Career Studio provides an environment that is an amazing place for a student to learn what the next steps are on their career path while feeling welcomed and pressure free. The peer led advising style takes away the intimidation that may come when a student goes to a traditional career services advisor. I enjoy guiding someone through their next steps to become successful in whatever career they pursue."

"I love being a career mentor because the studio is one of the few niches where students can come and get real life advice. Every student is at his University for a reason, yet nobody shows them what the next step is after college. I think the skills that are taught in the studio are paramount in a person's higher education, and as a mentor I get to be apart of sharing this knowledge."
