Best Practices

Looking for a way to increase your visibility on our campus? Do you need some ideas for "outside the box" programs? We have compiled a list of Best Practices to help you in planning your recruiting strategy at the University of Miami. These programs are very beneficial to our students, while at the same time helping your organization gain more exposure on campus.

EPIC Program (Employer Practice Interviews and Critiques)

The EPIC Program provides opportunities for employers assist students with interviewing skills and resume development. The benefits to the employer are increased exposure and interaction with potential candidates. Several companies have hired students they met during this program! EPIC will be held on September 16 & 17, 2013. 

Students are paired with a recruiter for 20 minute sessions and can choose to have a resume critique or practice interview. Employers can participate in the morning, afternoon, or all day. We handle all the scheduling and provide lunch for participating recruiters.

For more details, contact Jordan Adams at or 305-284-1989.

Alumni Involvement

One of the best ways to gain instant credibility with our current students is by bringing back UM alumni who work in your organization. Our students will relate to them and feel more comfortable in the recruitment process. Whether you bring alumni to a career fair, information session, or campus interview, they can be one of your greatest assets.

Breezeway Table

Struggling to get the word out? Want to reach hundreds of students in one day? Looking for a more informal way to chat with students about opportunities? Setting up a table in the University Center Breezeway is an excellent way to catch many students throughout the day. Whether you want to drive students to your upcoming Information Session or just want to briefly connect with students on campus, a Breezeway table is an easy way meet those needs. We provide the table. You bring your team, company information, and whatever else you need to attract students. (Hint: food, candy, giveaways are always a big hit!)

For more information and to reserve your FREE table today, contact Ali Rodriguez at or 305-284-1819.

Exploring Internships

A great way to market your internship program is by having UM students who have completed an internship with your organization serve as a panelist for the Exploring Internships program hosted in our career center and designed to prepare students for the internship search. Exploring Internships features student panelists who share their experiences while with your organization and the skills they learned through the process. Attending students can network with previous interns and are provided with materials regarding your company and potential internship opportunities. Past panelists have represented the U.S. Department of State, UBS Financial, Target, Vibe Magazine, NASCAR, and more!
