CLAS Career Ambassadors

The College of Liberal Arts & Sciences (CLAS) Career Ambassadors are a group of undergraduate CLAS students at UConn who focus on enhancing the undergraduate career of all CLAS students. The Ambassadors complete projects at the Center for Career Development that will directly benefit CLAS students, such as writing blog posts highlighting alumni in CLAS majors, creating advertisements for CLAS-recommended events, and much more. Additionally, they attend events the Center for Career Development holds, particularly those recommended for CLAS students, and assist with various functions. Some of these events include the CLAS Career Nights, What Can I Do With My Major? presentations for various CLAS majors, and of course, the Career Fairs.

The CLAS Career Ambassadors are always available to answer questions that any CLAS undergraduates may have as they are well-versed in the various programs and opportunities the Center for Career Development offers. The CLAS Career Ambassadors hope that all students, not just CLAS students, are able to benefit from the Center for Career Development as much as they have and utilize its programs to have the most successful undergraduate career.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Career Ambassadors

The DE&I Career Ambassador Program is a group of undergraduate students dedicated to exploring and promoting the intersection of identity and career development. DE&I Career Ambassadors provide résumé critiques, present to student organizations about career-related topics, plan and host networking opportunities for students of specific identity groups, and manage the Center for Career Development’s affinity community webpages. The goal of this program is to expand the career development opportunities designed specifically for marginalized student populations and build a network of advocates throughout the UConn community and beyond.
