Career Ambassador Job Description

 

Meet the Current Career Ambassadors

 

Louise Costello - Health Sciences

Hi, my name is Louise Costello, I am a second year Biomedical, Health and Life Sciences student. I am the CA for the school of Health Sciences!

One thing I really love about Health Sciences is that the course content tends to be really interesting. We learn about new and emerging treatments for illness and disease and are lucky to have so many lecturers who are active researchers. I love hearing them talk about their research, I find it very inspiring.

A little more about me - I am a huge bookworm! I love to read every chance I get so I’m often with a book or my kindle when I have a moment to spare during the day. If you saw me walking around campus, no doubt you could come up and talk to me about books - It is my chief obsession. Regarding my personality I think I am a very curious person - I love learning about history and other people, through reading and my conversations. I especially like listening to people talk about their passions, there's nothing like it.

 

Nikita Fernes - Social Sciences and Business

I'm Nikita Fernes and I'm in my final year in BSc Economics (Hons). I am a Career Ambassador and I represent the School of Social Sciences and also help out students from the School of Business. I really enjoyed the data analytics and research part of my course in Economics and I'm really sad to be leaving UCD this summer! However, I'm also really excited to see what the future holds especially after all the skills I've learned from working in societies and part-time jobs on campus, one of them being a UCD Careers Ambassador for 2 years now. If you ever see me around campus, feel free to come say hello and ask me for directions to anywhere around campus(including the careers offices), best coffee spots on campus (Pi cafe!) or even chat about the latest Marvel show! I hope everyone has a great time at UCD and takes full advantage of the opportunities it offers!

 

Kristina Kit - Social Science and Law

My name is Kristina and I am in my final year of Computational Social Science so as a Career Ambassador, I represent the College of Social Science & Law. What I really like about my course is that I get to combine Social Sciences with the more technical fields such as Statistics and Analytics which allows me to cover more ground and explore my interests all over the board.

My favourite thing is travelling and going on little adventures. I’m always the designated planner of trips in my friend group as I love organising and planning things. I’m also a serial series binge-watcher and could discuss the plots of my favourite series for hours on end.
