Meet Pitt’s Tech Ambassadors

Have you heard of the Skills Gap?  According to, a skills gap, is the difference between an employee’s skills and the skills a company requires for a specific role.  When an organization lists required skills on a job description, they are serious, and they really want to know that candidates have skills in those areas.

How are you building on the expected skill sets for post grad employment?  Regardless of your major or path, certain tech skills will be expected of you as a college graduate.  Tech skills are needed in every industry, in nearly every role.  From using Outlook for emails and calendars, to data analytics in Excel and PowerPoint presentations, every role is expected to have some degree of fluency in Microsoft Platforms. These Pitt students are trained to help you gain the skills (and free software) you need to know to compete in the workplace beginning on day one.

Pitt IT Tech Ambassadors are here to help you make the most out of the technology offerings at Pitt. Whether it’s helping you find the free software you need, like Microsoft Office or Adobe Creative Cloud, or holding a training for you and your friends – the Tech Ambassadors are here for you.

Tech Ambassadors are also fully skilled in all Microsoft 365 products. Just talk to a Tech Ambassador to learn how to get more organized using OneNote, leverage Teams for communication within your school, download a free copy of Office to keep after you graduate, and much more!

Meet and learn more about the Pitt IT Tech Ambassadors here!

Join the ambassadors and Career Center Staff at the LinkedIn Lounge and Microsoft Tech Talks for non-tech students November 8-10 in the WPU Lower Lounge.
