Career Envoys

Career Envoys are undergraduate 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 Envoys, there are internationals 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.

Office Location and Hours

If you are a student at the University Park campus, stop by and talk to Career Envoys in 117 Hammond Building during their office hours. No appointments necessary!

If you are a student at a campus other than University Park, you can connect to any of the Envoys by email.
