The Career Ambassador Team program contributes to the Duke University Career Center's mission to support the career development of Duke students. Career Ambassadors make a campus-wide impact by providing guidance to their peers, creating and sustaining campus and external partnerships, serving as career development role models, encouraging reflection and exploration, and connecting students with resources for success in their professional endeavors. Ambassadors' efforts strengthen the Career Center's communication and engagement with the undergraduate community.


Career Ambassadors will be rising Sophomores, Juniors, or Seniors who enjoy working on teams and pitching in for the good of the group/organization. They will demonstrate good communication and time management skills and be open to giving and receiving constructive feedback to/from peers and staff. Ambassadors offer enthusiasm, dependability, willingness to learn, and openness to new ideas and are willing and able to prioritize a leadership commitment to the Career Center.


Ambassadors will develop advising, leadership, team building, networking, and presentation skills. They will receive personalized attention from a career adviser mentor while making new friends and getting to know the Career Center staff. They develop job/internship search skills and craft a great resume. They have the opportunity to connect with employers interested in recruiting Duke students and make a difference in the lives of their peers.


Career Ambassadors are essential members of the Duke Career Center community. They provide guidance and advice for Duke students on many topics (including but limited to; document development, major exploration, Career Center services and job/internship search, competencies). They are trained in the Career Center philosophy and mission; resources and services, presentation topics, document review practices, competencies and some aspects of student development.

The Career Center is committed to the intentional professional development of the Career Ambassadors. We will provide opportunities for each Ambassador to engage in advising meetings and other opportunities to make progress in their professional development.
