Here's what our current Career Ambassadors enjoy most about their job…

"My favorite part of being a Career Ambassador at the Career Center is the opportunities you make to create connections. In my first year working here, I have been able to create relationships with employers, students and my co-workers. As a Career Ambassador, I feel a source of pride in being able to help students better understand the wide variety of opportunities that Temple University and their field of study have to offer. Helping Career Coaches in their presentations also has benefited me in my networking and presentation skills. I feel lucky to have found a job that benefits me personally as well as professionally.”

"As cliche as it sounds, I never expected to find a position that fits me so well. It is a position that helps me as I help others. The Career Center allows me to use my talent to help market events and materials to Temple students. I can utilize my knowledge of marketing and art which gives me useful experience in my advertising field. Additionally, as I critique student resumes and cover letters I also learn to critique my own. Just being a part of the Career Center, I am able to learn about positions and connect with employers at a variety of events. Overall, through working at the Career Center I am helping others succeed while I gain prominent experience as well."
