Become a guest speaker and offer graduate opportunities

Careers Ambassadors make a real difference to student employability at Cardiff and help to enhance the student experience. They can offer internships and work placements in the UK and abroad, and careers and industry-related talks in academic schools, fairs, and events.

I find that Cardiff graduates share a common desire and eagerness to learn and have a real spark of entrepreneurism that is a real attraction to us.
