Peer Career Ambassadors (PCAs) are the student leaders supporting the Hoffman Family Undergraduate Center for Career Development (CCD).
The PCAs serve as the student face of CCD setting the foundation as students explore the services CCD offers. They are trained to develop the skills and expertise needed to assist their peers with their career-related needs. The PCAs also are a crucial part of CCD’s efforts to promote services, program offerings, and the CCD brand across campus.
