The Career Ambassador Team (CAT) program contributes to the Duke University Career Center's mission to support the career development of Duke students. CATs 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. CAT efforts strengthen the Career Center's communication and engagement with the undergraduate community.
2016-2017 Career Ambassador Team
CAT’s 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. CAT’s 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.
CAT’s 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. CAT’s connect with employers interested in recruiting Duke students and make a difference in the lives of their peers.
