Career Ambassador Program
Through the Career Ambassadors Program, trained Student Career Ambassadors are available to provide information and resources from the Center for Career Development in multiple campus settings. You can meet with an SCA to review your résumé and cover letter, to learn more about online career resources, or to get answers to general questions about internships, summer jobs, networking and job search. If you are interested in becoming a career ambassador, contact: email@example.com.
Students, faculty, staff and employers are encouraged to use Internships.com to search and list all internship opportunities. All internships will now be posted on Internships.com, a new and free service brought to you by the Center for Career Development.
