The Academic & Career Advising Center is always looking for students interested in becoming a Career Educator.

What is a Career Educator?

Career Educators are a volunteer group of students that serve as ambassadors for the Academic & Career Advising Center. Under the support and direction of ACAC staff, Career Educators volunteer 2-5 hours* each week developing and conducting programs on career related topics .
*Note: Programs will typically be conducted during evening/night hours.

Main Responsibilities

  • Create career related programs
  • Deliver programs in residence halls and for student organizations.
  • Assist with career fairs and other ACAC events
  • Represent Longwood University & the ACAC at career fairs and other university events
  • Promote the ACAC to peers
  • Attend weekly or bi-monthly group meetings


In addition to gaining experience in programming and campus outreach, as Career Educators you will enhance your public speaking/presentation skills, acquire experiences to add to your resume, learn the ACAC's services first-hand, increase your comfort level when interacting with employers, assist your fellow students, and develop friendships with other Career Educators.
