Peer Coaches

The Peer Career Coach program is comprised of a group of student leaders dedicated to serving their peers through the career development process, working alongside full-time staff in the Career Services office. Peer Career Coaches (PCCs) are responsible for providing peers with résumé, cover letter, LinkedIn, Handshake, and other professional advice through walk-in advising.

Drop In Hours: The PCCs conduct drop in hours Monday through Friday from 12:30–3:30 both virtually and in person. Drop ins can be found online at go.iit.edu/career OR in person just outside the Commons in the MTCC.
