Career Development

Career Ambassadors

The Career Ambassador team and a CA working with 2 students

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 with information about what you would like presented and they will craft a workshop to fit your needs.


Career Ambassador Caitlin Richmond

Caitlin Richmond

Hi!  I'm Caitlin, and I am a senior Psychology major with a minor in Gender and Diversity Studies.  Outside of work and class, I am the president of the pep band and I enjoy exploring Cincinnati with my friends.  I also love cooking and trying new foods!

I love being a Career Ambassador because of the opportunities I have had to meet and interact with so many Xavier students. In this role, my hope has always been to be able to be a resource to students and help make Career Development feel more approachable and accessible.

Fun fact: I hope to eventually earn my PhD in Psychology and become a professor!


Bailey Tiu

Hi! My name is Bailey and I am a Senior Business Analytics major from the San Francisco Bay Area. I am a big sports fan so going to the basketball games here at Xavier is one of my favorite things to do on campus. Outside of school and work I like to cook, travel, and spend time with my friends and family.

I enjoy being a Career Ambassador because I get to help students reach their Career Development goals. When I was an underclassman, I wish I had a peer coach like the Career Ambassadors to help answer quick resume, cover letter, and career fair questions as going to a full time professional coach seemed intimidating at the time. Knowing how intimidating it can be for younger students to approach our full time professional coaches, as a Career Ambassador I strive to be a helping hand and more importantly a resource that students can easily come to for help.

Fun Fact: Favorite sports teams are the Los Angeles Lakers, Oakland A’s, and Dallas Cowboys.


Carolanne Zelis

Hello! My name is Carolanne Zelis and I am a junior from Cleveland, Ohio with a double major in Economics and Management and a minor in Strategic Human Resource Management.  Outside of the classroom, I am the Secretary for Human Resources Club as well as a member of Dean's Student Advisory Board and Community Action Day's Board.

Being a Career Ambassador is one of the best decision's I've made as a Xavier student.  Creating relationships with other students through professional development activities such as resume building and interview preparation brings me so much joy.  I'd love to share this experience with all of you!

Fun Fact: This summer I studied abroad in London, and I travelled to 11 other countries before returning home.
