Become a Career Services Ambassador!


ambassadorAre you looking for an opportunity to get more creatively involved on campus? Read on to find out about a unique opportunity to be a part of the Career Services Ambassador program for the 2015-2016 school year!

This program will consist of a select group of undergraduate volunteers ranging across all schools to partner with our office and serve as the “face” of Career Services within the student community. The role of the Ambassadors will be to raise awareness on campus about the wide array of resources we provide and the events we offer (such as career fairs and workshops)…and to have fun! The successful candidates will need to make a commitment for the 2015-16 academic school year. Ambassadors will gain valuable marketing and advertising experience and may hone their public speaking skills by co-presenting with career advisors on specific topics.

The strongest candidates should be gregarious and motivated team players with stellar communication and writing skills, an excellent sense of humor and a particular interest in at least one of the following areas: marketing, advertising, graphic design, co-presenting and special events planning and assistance (such as working at career fairs). Successful applicants must be willing to commit 1-2 hours/week (on average) throughout the fall 2015 and spring 2016 semesters. Each Ambassador will also be required to write at least one blog post for this Career Services blog, Penn & Beyond. (Please note this is an unpaid opportunity.)
