Most events run for three to four hours. However we need help prior to and after the events to assist employers with setting up and tearing down their exhibits.

What do you get for being an Ambassador?

  • Great experience and resume builder
    • Recruiters notice the work ambassadors put in during the event.  We encourage you to update your resume and bring multiple copies to the event even if you are not actively looking for a job or internship; you never know what opportunity might present itself.  
  • Direct employer contact
Even if you aren’t able to volunteer, we encourage you to come to the events for the experience to connect with organizations and explore employment and internship opportunities.

If you still have any questions contact the Career Events Office at (517) 884-1310.
