The College of Social & Behavioral Sciences (SBS) is now accepting applications for its SBS Ambassador Program. The program provides undergraduate students with the chance to develop their leadership skills and to establish social and professional connections that last beyond their time at the UA. Through their service to the College, SBS Ambassadors interact with faculty and staff members, the dean, the SBS Advisory Board, SBS alumni, donors, community partners, and with other SBS students. These engagements provide the student with opportunities to hone public speaking and team-building skills and learn how to be an affective mentor. SBS Ambassadors play key roles in recruitment events, information sessions, student social gatherings, community service projects, SBS VIP events, and our SBS speaker series. Ambassadors are expected to commit approximately 25 hours per semester for a minimum of two semesters. Students are required to attend trainings and orientation meetings with college staff, meet with their mentor, and participate in 5 college events and 2 recruitment events each semester. Students who complete their first academic year in the program with a successful evaluation from the program coordinator will have the option to continue as an ambassador their senior year. ELIGIBILITY: SBS Ambassadors are selected through a competitive process based on their high level of academic achievement, their outstanding leadership qualities, and their active engagement on and off campus. To be considered, students must: Be enrolled in a primary major in SBS Have completed at least 6 units of courses offered by departments in SBS Be in junior (60-89 units) or senior (90+ units) standing Demonstrate strong speaking skills Have a minimum GPA of 2.5 overall and in the major Commit to serve for a minimum of one year APPLICATION: Attached please find the Application form.

On Campus Interviewing: Resume Submission Deadlines & Information Sessions It is a brand new fall semester and to date we have 96 employers registered for OnCampus Recruiting. Many companies will be attending the UA Fall Career Days and many more will be participating with the recruiting season which starts September 30th to November 15th. Attached is a list of employers with resume submission deadlines and # of resumes submitted for their schedule. Remember, please pay close attention to those schedules that are running light this semester (meaning, students are not submitting their resumes to be considered for an interview). Some employers may cancel their visit due to low resume submission sign up. On the report you will also find the job ID#, job description, full time/internship and the majors/conentrations of what is being targeted. Also attached is a list of upcoming information sessions. Attendance has been low in the past so please make sure you help spread the word and the importance of attending an information session. The employers are eager to meet and speak to the students so let's help get the word out! Students must learn about what it means to "opt in" and about the $5.00 fee for the Wildcat Joblink campus interviewing system to view and/or submit a resume for these positions.
