Are you a senior looking for post-grad opportunities? Or a student interested in graduate school? Look no further! The Toppel Career Center has the answers you are looking for.

In the upcoming weeks we have several events for students to network with employers and help students decide the next major steps to take for their future. Now is the time to explore your options through Toppel’s Career Kick Off.

Start the Career Kick Off with EPIC on Wednesday, Sept 7 where you can sit down with the recruiter of your choice prior to the career fair to have them critique your resume or interview style. You can get advice directly from the employer so you know what you are doing well and what you can improve on.

On Thursday, Sept 8 and Friday, Sept 9 the Pre- Medical Mock Interview Program will be held to help students navigate the medical school interview process. Students should prepare for a specific medical school and will be given advice on their interview strengths and areas for improvement.

For all those who need help with their resume or would like a quick read through before the Career Expo, Resumania on Monday, Sept 12 will be the best way. Come to Toppel and bring a hard copy of your resume to the event!

The Opening Doors Networking Event on Tuesday, Sept 13 is a great way for students to connect with recruiters in a relaxed setting before the Career Expo. It is a chance to meet with them before the hundreds of other UM students speak to them at the Career Expo!

Finally our Career Kick Off ends with our long awaited Fall Career Expo where many recruiters and employers will be coming out to meet specifically with UMiami students. On Wednesday, Sept 14 at the Bank United Center, the Fall Career Expo will be a chance for students to learn about the job opportunities at the company of their dreams and learn about the expectations of the position.

Start the year off right not only with your books and pencils, but also with the skills you need to land your dream job! Come out to these events to help you prepare to network, interview, and meet employers.
