Cornell University

Meet our Student Staff

Drop in peer advisor reviews for resume or cover letters available Monday through Friday 1:00 to 4:00pm in 103 Barnes Hall. Stop by if you're starting from scratch or ready for a detailed review.

Cornell students are trusted members of the career services team. They all receive extensive and ongoing training and are a key part of our work! Employer Relations (ER) Student Associates serve as the first point of contact with our employer partners, students and staff visiting the Employer Relations and Professional Readiness Programs unit in the Central Career Services office. ER Student Associates also field questions from students regarding the Profile Picture Kiosk, The Wardrobe, Handshake and Campus Recruiting. You’ll see our Career Ambassadors out around campus explaining our resources and services to help students access tools more easily. Our Peer Career Coaches (PCC) are stationed in our office hosting drop-ins so students can receive convenient, constructive feedback about application materials. You can expect to get feedback about both the format and content of your documents. Our Ambassadors or PCCs may also walk you through helpful online resources or refer you to a specific professional advisor for ongoing support.
