Career Envoys are undergraduate and graduate students who have completed at least one co-op or internship experience and who help promote programs supported by both our office and the College of Engineering. They provide walk-in advising hours for engineering students and can answer questions about résumés, cover letters, interviews, and professionalism at work. They also reach out to engineering students, faculty, and employers through volunteerism at events, in special programs, and in classrooms.
Within our group of Career Envoys, there are two subgroups of Envoys who target specific student populations. International Student Career Envoys are international undergraduate engineering students with work experience who can answer questions their fellow international students may have about details like the application process for work visas or cultural adjustment to a U.S. workplace. Graduate Career Envoys are graduate engineering students who can answer career-related questions that are more specific to graduate students, especially those seeking industry positions.
