Students at JMU live in a rapidly changing world and are presented with a complex set of employment decisions.  POSC Career Peer Advisors, nominated by the faculty, work with departmental administrators, faculty and alumni to help their fellow students navigate the maze of information surrounding career opportunities.  They profile alumni success, host departmental events and do research projects on the employment options for our majors.  Their work keeps current students in touch with the alumni who have become agents of change and models across the professions, throughout the Commonwealth and around the world.
