Meet Our Peer Career Mentors

Peer Career Mentors (PCMs) are a vital career resource for first-year students. They are matched with first-year students in selected Peabody professional programs to provide additional career guidance and community support. Mentors must be willing to commit approximately 10-12 hours during the fall semester to the PCM program. This includes professional development, individual meetings with mentees, and group sessions. If you are interested in becoming a Peer Career Mentor, please email for more information.

Explore Identity-Based Career Resources

We recognize that career development and advancement are social justice issues. Students from underrepresented backgrounds may be challenged by inequalities in their job search and work environments. We pledge to support students' unique career needs in cultivating a sense of belonging and acceptance.
