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, career education programs, and services that empower undergraduate students to take part in all resources and opportunities the diverse NYU community and Wasserman has to offer.
