Being back on campus here at Cap means catching up with fellow students, making friends and seeing new faces. Career Development is a place where you’ll also see new faces since we have six new PCAs. A PCA stands for Peer Career Advisor and we are here to make your life easier!
Along with our director Eric Anderson and assistant director Jan Rich, we help by meeting any kind of career-related need you may have like writing resumes and cover letters and helping you search for an internship or job. We are on the second floor of the library, so since you may find yourself in our neck of the woods sometime, we want you to know a little bit about us and just how much we enjoy being here for you!
