Overview of the Career Ambassadors’

The Career Development implemented the Career Ambassador program in August 2012. This program consists of a team of students who are leaders at NSU and who are enthusiastic and outgoing while promoting the many resources the career office offers. The purpose of the Career Ambassador program is to bring awareness and market the Career Development at NSU. The Career Ambassadors serve as leaders to spread the word peer to peer at NSU. The Career Ambassadors support the mission and vision of the office, which is to support NSU students and alumni in the implementation of successful career plans from choosing a direction to securing employment or continuing their education through consulting, partnership with employers and faculty. The Career Development strives to educate students and alumni.

The Career Ambassador program not only builds a student-to-student connection for the office, but also helps mold and shape the leaders of NSU. Through this program, students that are picked to be career ambassadors learn a variety of resources that not only assist fellow students but themselves. Career ambassadors create and use target events to help students from various majors and years. As an Ambassador, one is not only learning what he/she needs for their own professional goals, but helping create the NSU experience for others in order to take full advantage of the resources available for NSU students.

Our team consists of enthusiastic NSU undergraduate leaders who will represent the Career Development services and events while marketing and giving feedback and advisory opinions at the request of the career development staff. The purpose of the Career Ambassador program is to bring awareness and market the Career Development to NSU from one student to another.
Each Career Ambassador will have their designed roles, but all of the career ambassadors share these responsibilities:
  • Attend and support career-related events and programs
  • Serve as a “buddy” to visit the Career Development and career related events
  • Inform students about career services; make classroom announcements, meet with student organizations, attend NSU career events, etc.
  • Create pre-event buzz on campus by handing out flyers, making announcements, etc.
  • Use promotion tactics such as social media and tabling at events such as SEA Thursday, etc.
  • Take photos or videos of events and post on the career social media outlets
*This position requires between 6-8 hours a week*
