Wasserman Career Ambassadors (WCAs) take an active role in their own career exploration, model professionalism, and encourage NYU students to actively engage in their individual career development. WCAs serve as liaisons between the Wasserman Center and the student body, and are committed to providing quality leadership, programs, and services that empower undergraduate students to take part in all resources and opportunities the diverse NYU community and Wasserman has to offer.

Working with Career Ambassadors

The Wasserman Career Ambassadors program was established to build relationships with undergraduate students across all of NYU campuses and schools. Wasserman Career Ambassadors can conduct presentations about career-related topics to Undergraduate Clubs, Fraternities and Sororities, Departments, Residence Halls and more. WCAs also conduct basic Resume and Cover Letter review on site at your organization and attend tabling events promoting the Wasserman Center.
