The Office of Career Services is seeking applications from current second-year students to serve as OCS Peer Advisors for the 2010-2011 academic year. Peer Advisors are responsible for assisting OCS staff with our various career-related initiatives. This involves assisting with career programs, monitoring developments in the legal market, counseling students, conducting career-related research, drafting content for the OCS website and blog and advising the OCS staff on student issues and concerns. Because of OCS’ close relationships with employers, working in OCS offers a unique perspective on what is happening in the private sector. Our Early Interview Program at the end of August will offer many opportunities to interact with both students and employers. Peer Advisors receive $11.00 per hour and work 10-12 hours/week, including paid training sessions.
If you are interested in helping others navigate through the job search process and working as part of the OCS team, then this would be a great opportunity. Please submit a cover letter and resume via email by Wednesday, March 24 to jperrigo at law.harvard.edu. For additional information or questions, please contact Jennifer Perrigo, Assistant Director for J.D. Advising by email at jperrigo at law.harvard.edu or by phone at 617-495-1628.
