Career Peer Advisor
My role as a Career Peer Advisor is to connect with students and help them move forward professionally. Whether it be working on a resume or crafting a cover letter, I work to make the process clear and enjoyable for students as they work towards their goals.
Outside of work, I love being in nature and going on walks, hikes or exploring new neighborhoods in Denver. I enjoy writing and photography, and I am a part of a start-up publication on campus called Daniels Journal.
Career and Professional Development is such an incredible place to work because everyone is so supportive of one another. My favorite part about my role is watching a student’s confidence grow as they make strides in their professional journey. Having the opportunity to work alongside people who share the same passion of helping students advance is so inspiring and motivates me to continue pursuing my dreams.
Peer Career Advisor
Hello! My name is Sophia Mellsop and I am a DU undergraduate student majoring in Finance and President of DU’s Undergraduate Women in Business organization. I’m from Salida, Colorado and I love tough workouts, cheesy rom-coms, and spending time outdoors with friends and family.
As a Peer Career Advisor, I hold drop-in and scheduled advising appointments to help undergraduate students enhance their resumes and cover letters, develop professionalism, and achieve their career aspirations. My hope is that students walk away feeling excited, energized, and inspired about their career journey.
Working in Career & Professional Development has helped me discover the value of my own story and has empowered me to pursue my career goals. What I love most about this role is to witness students gain self-confidence and take pride in what makes them unique.
