High Point Convention and Visitors Bureau is announcing the launch of the Market Ambassador Program which is available to 10 highly competitive candidates from High Point University.
The purpose of this program is to enhance the experience of our visitors during the High Point Market. Our Market Ambassador’s would be equipped with all necessary information, technology and clothing. The Ambassadors will be found on foot in areas of high pedestrian activity, assisting with any particular needs our visitors might need. In return, the students will receive quality experience and insight of working during the furniture market and would have access into Market as well as, the entertainment and will be paid hourly.
To participate in the Market Ambassador Program you will need to complete the attached application form.
“Not using the career center is like living next to Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, yet deciding to ride a bike to New York City,” according to Dave Morgan, manager of client relations and experienced hiring with Ford Motor Company. “Eventually, you’ll get where you want to go, but you’re in for an unnecessarily long and bumpy ride. Career centers facilitate connections with students and others and make the recruiting process much smoother. Why would you bypass the career center? After all, two of its primary functions are to help students find employment and to help employers find students.” – A message from the NACE President, March 2005
