Welcome to the new site of the Toppel Peers Blog. What is the Toppel Peers Blog, you ask? Great question!

The Toppel Peers Blog is a medium of communication from the Toppel Career Center staff to University of Miami students and the surrounding community. Here you will find tips, tricks, how-to posts, and suggestions on topics like career readiness, internship searches, making the most of your current job, dressing for success, how to rock an interview, and so much more!

Each week you can expect a couple posts that will be focused around personal and professional development. I am personally very excited to see what tips our staff has in store for us this semester, so I hope that you will stay tuned with me on the edge of our seats…

My shameless plug in this first post is about our walk-in advising at Toppel. Bring your resume, cover letter, personal statement, or CV to our walk-in advising staff (Monday through Friday 9:00 am to 4:30 pm) and we will be happy to review it with you!

Don’t forget, Career Expo is coming up on September 19th! Allow us to help you put your best foot forward by dropping in to see us. You will need professional dress and copies of your resume to enter the venue so don’t wait until the last minute to rent clothes from Sebastian’s closet (see link below) or to come in for resume help!

Thank you all and good luck this semester! Go Canes!
