Otago Career Ambassador programme

The Otago Career Ambassador programme aims to further develop skills in the areas of leadership, self-awareness, career knowledge, project management and interpersonal skills.

The programme is suited to all students interested in developing their professional career.

Students will work closely with the team at the Career Development Centre to promote and help facilitate career activities for Otago students and to enhance their own employability skills.

The programme also provides an opportunity for personal growth, career-related training, and mentoring.

Through a series of workshops, self-evaluation and project-based tasks, students will be eligible to graduate from the programme. The participants of the Otago Career Ambassador Programme will be willing and motivated students in their final year of study who see the value of further developing their employability and are willing to share that with other students.

The programme structure provides opportunity for students to initiate and execute a project to listen and respond to students.
