Career Peer Advisors

Career Peer Advisors (CPAs) are here to provide students from all class years with peer support related to their individual career development needs.

CPAs are trained advisors that can meet with students to talk about and give feedback on resumes, cover letters, and using Handshake most effectively. CPAs are well prepared and ready to help students with some of the most commonly asked career questions. They can also help guide students to resources, services, and the expertise of the HCC staff as it relates to their specific needs.

Students may schedule an appointment with a CPA through Handshake or they can come visit HCC during walk-in hours. Meet our advisors:
