Third Party Recruiters
Definitions of Third Party and Temporary Employment Agencies:
Third Party or Temporary Employment Agencies are organizations or individuals that recruit candidates for temporary, part time or full time employment opportunities for other organizations rather than for their own organization's internal hiring needs.

Policies for Third Party and Temporary Employment Agencies:
Agencies wishing to list a position with the University of Miami on HireACane must adhere to the following:
  • For Job Postings, provide the name of the client you are representing in the Job Description
  • State in the job description that any fees assessed by the agency will be paid by the client organization or employer you represent. The University of Miami will not post any opportunities that require students to pay fees
  • Agree that you or your client may not forward University of Miami students' resumes to any other party without the student/applicant's written consent. Failure to comply with this is a violation of The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974.

Offer Deadline Policy:

The Toppel Career Center requires that you abide by the following offer policies to allow our students sufficient time to carefully consider their employment options and make informed decisions.

  • Summer: Full-time offers extended to students during the summer should expire no earlier than Fall Recess (UM Academic Calendar). 
  • Fall: Full-time and internship offers extended to students during the Fall semester should expire no earlier than November 15th, or a minimum of three weeks after they are given (whichever comes later). 
  • Spring: Full-time offers extended to students during the Spring semester should expire no earlier than two weeks after they are given.  Internship offers should expire no earlier than the beginning of Spring Recess (UM Academic Calendar), or a minimum of two weeks after they are given (whichever comes later).
This will give our students sufficient time to explore their options and make as informed a decision as possible. In the end, we want you to obtain the best candidates and we want our students to have the best opportunities! In the spirit of collaboration, we hope that you will inform us of any offers made and also that you let us know of any of our students who renege on an acceptance of an internship or full-time job offer.

The Toppel Career Center reserves the right to deny recruiting privileges (job postings, on campus interviewing, career fairs, etc.) to any organization.
