Cahill Career Development Center
Peer Career Advisors
Peer Career Advisors are the first point of contact for students seeking career-related services and provide early-stage advisement on a peer-to-peer level. They support the professional staff by helping students identify where they are in the career development process and find new avenues for exploration. Peer Career Advisors bring student experiences to the Cahill Center and conduct student outreach through event programming in residence halls, classes, and at club/organization meetings. They are trained in aspects of advising to promote successful job and internship search strategies, introduce students to various online tools and resources, help students access the career library, and conduct resume/cover letter reviews. Peer Career Advisors are knowledgeable about all services offered by the Cahill Center, and promote opportunities at Ramapo to gain self-knowledge, understand and practice life/career decisions, and apply classroom experiences to real-world settings.

Senior Resident Assistants
Senior Resident Assistants (SRA) share many of the same responsibilities as RAs and CAs. SRAs are charged with more office hours and responsibilities, which consist mostly of assisting their Resident Director. These areas of responsibility may differ, depending on the area, but can include overseeing programming, maintaining records for facilities upkeep, and maintaining lounge reservations. SRAs are provided with more extensive training then RAs and CAs and are encouraged to initiate projects that will be professionally stimulating.
Assistant Residence Directors
Assistant Residence Directors (ARD) maintain an administrative role in larger-population areas. Much like the SRAs, an ARD’s responsibilities will vary depending on area. These responsibilities may include maintaining facility and inventory records, overseeing space reservations, and other daily operations tasks. ARDs are also provided with more extensive training than RAs and CAs and are encouraged to initiate projects that will be professional stimulating. They also work under the Resident Directors.
Desk Attendants (DA) are located at the entrance of all traditional residence halls. They are student-staff who help the Office of Residence Life maintain communication, security, and a friendly environment in the Residence Halls. The main tasks of Desk Attendants are to assist students and guests of students gain appropriate access to the Residence Halls as well as ensure that all records of persons entering the halls are accurate and up-to-date.
Desk Attendant Managers
Desk Attendant Managers assist the Coordinators of the Desk Attendant Program in training and supervising the student staff throughout the academic year. While serving as Desk Attendants in the residence halls, the Desk Attendant Managers are responsible for supervising their Desk Attendant staff, including scheduling and attending individual staff meetings, maintaining a work schedule for their residence hall(s), and assisting with payroll.
