Peer Career Advisors

Career Development

The peer career advisor is a valuable role for the Office of Career Development, providing an opportunity for students to engage with their peers in the Salve Regina community as ambassadors for career services and student employment. Peer career advisors are trained to provide accurate information about the office and its resources, and encourage students to understand and connect with our services. Students can visit the Office of Career Development during walk-in hours for a 15-minute resume or cover letter meeting with a peer career advisor every weekday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. without an appointment.

I enjoy spending time with friends outside and adventuring to new places. I am dedicated to making a difference with communities whose voices have been historically silenced. I enjoy being a peer career advisor for the opportunity to help fellow students achieve their goals while also working towards mine.

Pronouns: She/her/hers

In my free time, I enjoy spending time outside, taking trips down Ocean Drive with friends and practicing self-care by doing yoga or writing poetry. I enjoy being a peer career advisor because it has strengthened my communication skills and allowed me to learn more about career planning. I love my work environment and fellow staff and appreciate the chance to help other students as they reach for their career goals.

Julia Sampayo ’23

Major: Marketing, minors in business administration and economics

Pronouns: She/her/hers

I enjoy exploring Newport, shopping and spending time with my friends and family, especially my French bulldog, Remi. I enjoy being a peer career advisor because I get to help and meet new students while also building and learning new skills for myself. It's very rewarding knowing that you helped someone and learned something new all at the same time.
