Clemson Center for Career and Professional Development

Career Ambassador Program

What is a Career Ambassador?

Career Ambassadors are student leaders who serve fellow students in the Center for Career and Professional Development. Through in-depth training and guidance in professional development, career ambassadors provide peer advising to undergraduate students on career related topics. In addition, they provide a friendly face for both the Michelin Career Center, Clemson University and to all patrons, including employers recruiting on campus during the fall and spring semesters. The career ambassadors not only help peers with items like resumes and cover letters during drop-in hours, but also create resources and initiatives for the Center for Career and Professional Development that are utilized for years to come.

How to become a Career Ambassador

Have you been searching for an opportunity to get involved on campus? Are you in need of professional development? Do you enjoy working 1-on-1 with fellow students? Do you wish you had strong resume writing, cover letter, or job searching skills? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should apply to be a Career Ambassador!

Why should you apply?

In addition to gaining invaluable experience in a professional setting, as a career ambassador you will:


  • Receive in-depth training on developing professional skills and documents
  • Provide career-related assistance to undergraduate students
  • Engage with campus leaders to develop new partnerships around campus
  • Network with employers
  • Prepare to meet personal and professional goals
  • Add experience to your resume and LinkedIn profile

Apply in Spring

Each spring semester, applications for the ambassador program for following year will be accepted. The position will be posted in ClemsonJobLink in January, and can be found by searching for "CCPD Career Ambassador" under Jobs.


Apllication deadlines vary but will be posted during the application period. Anyone interested in applying should also email Laura Koepsell (lkoepse@clemson.edu) to get more information.

"In the heart of recruiting season for my major, I didn't realize how much of an asset being a Career Ambassador would be. Multiple companies inquired about the experience, and it led me to internship offers for two separate firms in the summers of 2016 and 2017."

- Erin Weingart, Career Ambassador 2015 - 2016
