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

"My time at Career Services as an Ambassador was everything I hoped it would be and more. Not only did I get to enhance my communication skills through volunteering with the street team, I also learned a lot more about my potential career field while helping out at the events over both Fall and Winter semesters. Rarely do we get the chance to interact with employers in such a setting (where you're welcoming and helping them instead of the other way around), so I strongly encourage you to take this unique and valuable opportunity to contribute, learn, and meet some amazing people along the way." - Queen's student, 2014
