In order to bridge the gap between the Career Services staff and the student population at Carthage, the Career Ambassador Program has been developed. Career Ambassadors consist of student workers with a diverse range of majors, campus involvement, and backgrounds who act as paraprofessionals for students across all majors.

Career Ambassadors are trained to target the specific career development needs of students. After learning how to identify strengths and weaknesses in resume and cover letter writing, Career Ambassadors utilize their coaching skills to review the resumes and cover letters of their peers.

In addition to the development of strong coaching skills, Career Ambassadors have helped organize Career Services events, including the annual Alumni Networking Dinner, Career Summit, Life After Carthage Fair, and the upcoming Spring into Summer Fair.

All Career Ambassadors are assigned special projects. From data collection to social media management and marketing, they complete a wide variety of projects in and out of the office.

Currently, Career Ambassadors are working on the following projects:

  • Preparation for the Spring into Summer Career Fair (Monday, Feb. 26 —11:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. — Clausen Center)
  • @mycarthage Instagram takeover (week of Feb. 12)
  • Student org presentations (Feb. and March)
  • Resume pop-up review sessions around campus (spring semester)

If you want to schedule an appointment with Career Services staff, please email Career Services or call 551-5959.
