Cultural Ambassadors connects working and retired professionals with highly motivated international students and graduates preparing to enter the U.S. job market. Professionals represent a wide range of fields and industries and can engage in one of two ways:
Mentor: A skilled professional who meets one-on-one with students/graduates four times over the course of a semester to provide guidance and connections. Support provided by the mentor includes a resume review and a mock interview.
Connector: For C-level executives–meet once one-on-one with students/graduates and, subsequently, provide referrals and access to networks
In addition to professional connections, Global Ambassadors hosts workshops with industry professionals on skills and information necessary to succeed in the workplace. Past workshop topics have included:
- Business etiquette
- Crafting your resume
- Developing your elevator pitch
- Making the most of LinkedIn
