On Campus Recruiting

During the fall and spring over 400 companies participate in the Toppel Career Center’s On Campus Recruiting Program. Employers come to campus to interview UM students and graduates for Full-Time and Internship opportunities. To apply for on-campus interviews you must be registered on HireACane and have an approved resume on the system.

  • Login to HireACane and upload your resume! Make sure you have accurately filled out your academic profile; this is the data that HireACane uses to match you up with opportunities for which you are eligible.
  • Once your resume is uploaded the first time, your resume is critiqued by a Toppel Career Center staff member and emailed back to you with corrections within 3-5 business days. After the initial resume is approved you can upload up to 10 total documents.
  • Attend an Interviewing Skills Program (click here for dates and times). Attend this workshop and learn the steps to follow before, during and after the interview to increase your chances of landing the job you want.
  • View the following additional resources: (1) OCR Orientation, (2) Test Questionnaire, and (3) Practice Interview.

On Campus Recruiting Cancellation Policy for Students

NOTE: It is your responsibility to keep track of each step in this process. The Toppel Career Center is not responsible for reminding you about deadlines.
Keep in mind:

  • Missed appointments inconvenience employers who have scheduled their time around your interview.
  • Missed appointments reflect poorly on other UM students, faculty and staff who are your peers, colleagues and teachers.
  • Missed appointments damage Toppel’s relationship with employers who may reconsider whether or not to participate in OCR in the future. Employers do talk to each other.
  • Because missed appointments disrupt this working relationship, other students now, and in the future, may have their career goals affected by your actions.

Either way, your actions affect not only you, but your fellow students. It is your decision whether you affect them positively or negatively. Cancellations are strongly discouraged, and no-shows are unacceptable. However, we understand that emergencies do occur at times. Please give us (at a minimum) a 24-hour notice you will not be able to commit to your interview time if an emergency arises.

Contact Jordan Adams, Assistant Director, Recruiting Services in writing at j.adams16@miami.edu.
The following will be the result for students who do not follow this process:

  • Your HireAcane account will be disabled
  • You must write a letter of apology addressed to “Dear Recruiter:” and include the name of the company you were scheduled to interview with (be ready to provide a printed and electronic version of it)
  • You must call the Toppel Career Center at 305-284-5451 to schedule a meeting with Jordan Adams, Assistant Director, On-Campus Recruiting

Years taken to build business relationships for the benefit of the UM community can be erased with just a few negative experiences. Please observe the highest professional and ethical standards and see yourself as we see you: an ambassador to the business community, representing the University of Miami.

Company Information Sessions

A Company Information Session is a critical part of the research that you need to effectively prepare for all interviews. Information Sessions are informative and serve as a way of gathering additional information about the company before the interview. In addition, it enables you to personally meet a representative from the company and also ask questions at the end of the session. If you have scheduled an interview with an employer, you should always attend their presentation, which is usually held the evening prior to the interview date. This is how you learn about career options, company culture and environment, and career trends so that you can make informed decisions.

To see what companies are conducting an information session, sign into HireACane and click on the Events Tab and then on the Information Sessions Tab.
