Meet Brittney K. Mensah, a Political Science, International Studies, and Sociology major! She is a pre-law student, a Hammond Scholar, the President of the African Students Union, the founder & chair of the Multicultural Student Council, the Co-Program Coordinator for Beyond the Horizons, and a President’s 100 Ambassador.

During the summer of her junior year, she became a Teaching Fellow with Americorps - Breakthrough Miami. Through this program, she learned how the education system disproportionately affects students of color. Furthermore, she was educated on the laws surrounding the education system and was inspired by Breakthrough Miami about the change that can be implemented through the law field in education. As a result, she took it upon herself to apply to law school, which she will be attending in the fall of 2023, with a primary focus on education law reform.

She says that Toppel has helped her to obtain jobs and internships that would properly assist her with her future career. She used Handshake to apply for the internships she had throughout her time at the U. Additionally, she utilized the resume workshops to improve the layout and format of her resume. Finally, she attended some of the pre-law / law programs that came to UM to assist with the law school process.

Piece of Advice: “Do not be afraid to ask for help. When I started my law school application journey, I felt very alone and unsure. Once I asked for help, I realized that so many people were willing to assist me or connect me with the resources I needed to prevail. You have a village here at the University of Miami; use it.”

Searching for Entry-Level Jobs on Handshake

Whether you’re graduating this semester or graduation is far on the horizon for you, securing a job after graduation is something to consider now. For most of you, the reason why you’re in school is so that you can get a successful career out of it. Landing a job right out of college not only looks good on your resume but is a great way to jumpstart your career journey.

One of the best ways to go about securing a job right out of college is by searching and applying for entry-level jobs. Entry-level jobs are exactly what they sound like – jobs for students who are just entering the workforce. Entry-level jobs provide you with solid footing for you to gain experience and explore what you want to do in your career. While getting that first job may feel a bit intimidating, just remember that it’s your first job but doesn’t have to be your last.
