3 Career Services Ambassadors, wearing nametags and their ambassador shirts - Summer Job Fair Career Services Ambassador Volunteers

Ambassadors are a big part of the Queen’s Career Fairs and one of the reasons they are so successful, and they are also a great opportunity for you. By representing Queen’s University, you will have the opportunity to meet with local, national and international employers and start you off on the right foot based on your presence as a volunteer.

Why should you volunteer?

You will have the opportunity to meet and network with employers from an advantaged position. As an ambassador you are demonstrating to employers that you have initiative and positive employable qualities before ever handing your resume.

You will also gain valuable volunteer experience, enhance your communication, team building and network with Career Service staff, other students and volunteers. As an added bonus, volunteers will receive a formal letter of thanks from Queen’s On Campus Recruiting team!   

What do Ambassadors do?

Ambassadors represent Queen’s University by maintaining a positive demeanor at all times.

The various roles that Ambassadors have during the fairs are:

For Online Events

  • Lobby Host - host a Zoom Room, create break-out rooms, and usher employers and students to break-out rooms for career conversations.

For On-Campus Events (all events are being held remotely for now)

  • Employer Mix & Mingle – Assist employers upon arrival and interact with them throughout the event. For example – ambassadors help unload vehicles, carry displays and assist with booth set up.
  • Event Set – Up – Assist with preparation prior to the start of the event.  This includes setting up signage, registration desk and tables.
  • During the Fair – Assist students attending the fair by answering a variety of questions about the event and work with Career Service staff at specific booths.  

Again, you will have the opportunity to leave lasting, favourable impressions with participating employers.
