Career Peers

Do you feel stuck in your job search at this time? Do you need someone who will listen supportively to your concerns, answer your burning questions, and offer thoughtful feedback on your resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile?

Career Peers are here to support you – the students and recent grads of SFU.

Career Peers advise on creating resumes, writing cover letters, and using LinkedIn tools to build a professional online presence. Career Peers build SFU students up through outreach, events, and education, with a team of like-minded individuals. 

In support of social distancing during COVID, Career Peers have transitioned all services online and deliver 1:1 virtual consultations through Zoom (sfu.zoom.us). 

Career Peers are available Monday to Friday in the morning, afternoon, and evening hours. Call 778-782-3106 or email careers@sfu.ca to find the best appointment time for your schedule.
