What Former Students Say

  • "Being a Career Envoy shows that you are passionate and like to share your knowledge. It shows a company that you are a team player and a leader. This program has helped me work on my explanations and attention to detail. I highly recommend it to any student, looking to help others and enhance their résumé. Do not let anyone tell you cannot work for the company of your dreams, go network, and nail the interview. I wake up and work for the company I always wanted to, right out of college! " — Matthew Corlew, '21 Eng (ME)

  • "Being an Engineering Envoy supported long-term career growth because advising other students helped me reflect on lessons learned during my own internships and co-ops, which internalized those insights. In addition, I had to talk about my experience in a coherent and persuasive manner, which was perfect training for future interviews. Overall, it was a great way to give back while developing myself!" — Erick Froede, '10 Eng (ME)
