The Student Ambassador Program provides outgoing, connected and ambitious Coggin College students the opportunity to serve as student representatives of the Career Management Center (CMC); they are the student face of the CMC. Student Ambassadors play an integral role in the marketing and execution of programs presented by the Career Management Center (CMC) and the Coggin College of Business. Events and promotions that Student Ambassadors have assisted with in the past include classroom presentations, career fairs, networking events, tabling to promote events, career workshops, fundraising, dean’s office events, STAR Program events, the Coggin hooding ceremony, and off-campus industry events.
By participating in the program, Student Ambassadors have the opportunity to network with their peers and business professionals, learn about the job market, and enhance their resumes. It is not uncommon for Student Ambassadors to make connections during their term that lead to job or internship opportunities.
The Career Management Center staff selects Student Ambassadors at the end of the fall and spring semesters for the following semester. Students must submit an application, essay and an updated resume in order to be considered for the program to firstname.lastname@example.org.
