Student Career Advisors
What is a Student Career Advisor (SCA)?
The Student Career Advisors (SCAs) are peer career liaisons of the Career and Community Engagement Center. They review resumes, cover letters, assist with job applications, Whitman Internship Grant applications & process, connect you with the Career Pathfinder and/or Whitman Connect, plus offer guidance in Handshake. They are available during their drop-in hours or for a 1:1 appointment that you can schedule over email.
