Peer Educators

Mission Statement: "By building meaningful peer-to-peer interactions, we help students on their journey from academic to professional career"

When you visit the Career Center, you will most likely meet a Peer Educator. The Peer Educators are here to help you get started.

Alexis, Claudia, Dean, Jordan, Katryna, Narineh, and Lexi are students like you who are familiar with the career development process and can speak to you about:

  • Career Center resources
  • Resumes
  • Cover-letters
  • Job search strategies

They can also just listen as you begin sorting out what your next steps should be.

You may also see the Career Peer Educators on campus as they share the resources of the Career Center.

Check out our video for more information on our Peer Educators.

You can contact the Peer Educators by stopping in the Career Center, by e-mail us at careerpeers@csun.edu or by calling (818) 677-2878.
