The Career Ambassador Program

The Career Ambassador program serves as a bridge between Northwestern Career Advancement and the Northwestern University student population.  Career Ambassadors are trained to advise fellow students on quick career related concerns during NCA walk-in hours.  In addition, Career Ambassadors conduct outreach presentations across campus and assist with marketing NCA programs and events.  Career Ambassadors serve an integral role at NCA and wear many hats; that of educator, advisor, consultant, presenter, and campus liaison.
