Meet Your Peer Coaches
Hello! I'm Tanya, an incoming 5th year Manufacturing Engineering student and I am so excited to be one of the Engineering Career Peer coaches this year! The job search process is long and can be arduous, but both the successes and rejections have taught me so much along the way. I'm passionate about helping other students, like yourselves, so please utilize the resources the career office has to offer - we're here to support you! If you see me around campus, don't be a stranger! My email is: ECPC.firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi! My name's Brian, I'm a fourth year CHBE student with 24 months of co-op under my belt. During my co-ops I've worked in the plant, and in the office; during the day, and through the night. I've worked in really varied positions at start-ups, multinational corporations, and research facilities. I hope to be able to help guide you to make the most of your career search experience, so you can have just as much fun as I have :) Outside of work and school, I love cooking and recently just started mountain biking, so let me know if you're interested in hitting the trails. Please contact me if you have any questions about resumes, cover letters, or even just to chat! My email is: ECPC.email@example.com
