What Other Students Say+

"The Career Services Ambassador (CSA) program gave me the opportunity to interact with potential employers in a low stress environment.  I felt more comfortable talking to company representatives because I was there primarily for their benefit.  The CSA program is a fantastic way to further your own career while improving employer relations with Queen’s at the same time.  In fact, my first interaction with my current employer was at the Queen’s Career Fair as a CSA."  - Queen’s student, 2011
