Scobell

Hi, I’m Andrew and I’m in the Class of 2018, double majoring in Economics and Statistics. I am interested in using data analysis for marketing. On campus, I am involved in Moneythink and UNICEF because I love giving back to the community. When I have free time I enjoy running, fencing, traveling, writing, playing guitar, and having a good time! I am looking forward to being a CPM because, as a freshman, I was very confused as to how to start out with job searches, particularly with making a resume. When the CPMs came to Scobell, they really helped me out, and I wanted to give the same experience to the incoming freshmen, in addition to helping my peers.

What is a long term personal goal you have for the CPM role?
Get first year students to look into their career options so that they are able to see if they want to continue with their chosen major. If not satisfied, first years have plenty of time to adjust their path.

Why did you want to become a CPM?
Last year, I had the opportunity to work with first year students through various organizations and programs and I found it both fun and exciting to be able to help and mentor them. Last year, I myself had a number of upper class mentors whose help was essential to my feeling comfortable at CMU. I want to be a CPM to continue this tradition of mentorship at CMU.

Stever

Why did you want to become a CPM?
I saw a lot of my friends struggling with their resumes and cover letters as freshmen, so I want to take this opportunity to help my friends as well as myself to be better prepared for our career path. Also, I like the idea of helping new freshmen students next semester, so that more students can get started early.

Professional Writing and Global Studies

Address
Boss and McGill

Hi, I’m Maria and I’m in the Class of 2018, majoring in Global Studies, with an interest in Professional Writing. This will be my first year as a CPM and I am really looking forward to be meeting and working with a whole new body of CMU students! In addition to being a CPM, I am also involved with the FORGE and Juntos service groups, and spend the rest of my free time reading fantasy and history. I have always enjoyed tutoring and mentoring, and was fortunate enough to have a very positive experience with my own Career Peer Mentor during the first couple of weeks on campus. Learning how to navigate career and internship paths seemed daunting to me, especially during that initial transition phase, and I would really love to give the same support I received last year to new students. As a CPM, I would have the opportunity to meet first-years and to hopefully become a helpful source of information and support for them as they embark on this new stage of their academic and professional career.

E-Tower and Hamerschlag

Hi, I’m Mary and I’m in the Class of 2018, double majoring in Electrical & Computer Engineering and Biomedical Engineering. I enjoy food touring with my roommate, folding origami roses, and visiting museums. During the holidays I love to travel around, and sometimes volunteer to look after giant pandas. As a freshman, I learned many things from the CPDC events and I wish to help the incoming freshman get the most out of their first-year experience. The people I will meet and the collaborative skills I will polish as a CPM will make it not only a job to work for but also a lesson to learn from.

Junior
Business Administration

Address
E-Tower and Rez on Fifth

Why did you want to become a CPM?
I became familiar with the CPDC early in my freshman year by constantly visiting my career consultant for resume and job fair help. I took this advice and shared it with friends and encouraged them to use the CPDC resources. I quickly realized that what I was doing was essentially what I could do as a CPM, only on a larger scale and with more knowledge, being able to help more people.
