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 12:30–2:30 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.

Madhu Jagdale

This is Madhu, and I am a first year ITM graduate student majoring in Data Analytics and Management. I am an international student at Illinois Tech and a Peer Career Coach at Career Services. This role is amazing as I get to talk to lot of students, help them in achieving their career goals and I learn a lot in the process. Travelling and shopping are the things I love to do. 

One advice I would give you is to take advantage of the resources and opportunities within Illinois Tech. Just remember one thing, there is no success without commitment. Keep learning new things and be ready to accept challenges.
