The Career Ambassadors are a team of students, trained as peer career coaches, to assist undergraduate students through the career development process - from creating and editing your resume or CV, crafting an engaging cover letter, and finding positions that suit your interests and goals. Career Ambassadors can also help with interviewing and career fair preparation.
The Career Ambassador team is the first point of contact during daily drop-in hours. Stay for 10 minutes or stay for an hour to get the assistance you need and Career Ambassador can help you through the process. If a Career Ambassador needs assistance with your questions, a staff Career Coach is always available to help.
If you are in a club or residence hall who would like a Career Development presentation, the Career Ambassadors can help with that too! Just email CareerAmbassadors@xavier.edu with information about what you would like presented and they will craft a workshop to fit your needs.

Hey everyone! My name's Matt, I'm a Senior Marketing and Strategic Human Resource Management double major from Cincinnati, Ohio. I serve as President for Xavier's Human Resource Club as well as being a Cadet within Xavier's Army ROTC Program.
