Meet Paulina Levitan, a senior Modern Artist Development & Entrepreneurship major!

She recently interned at Creative License where she worked on licensing music used in commercials, TV, and film. Through this opportunity, she gained experience, knowledge, and preparation in the music industry that she is pursuing.

She said she had to #LevelUp by solidifying her resume and applying for post-grad jobs. She attributes the Toppel Career Center with helping her work on her internship search and motivating her to stay focused on her goals and excited about her future.

Piece of Advice:

“Don't be afraid to reach out and network! You never know where an opportunity may lead. Apply everywhere you can; the more the better!”

Job Shadowing

One of the best ways to learn something is to learn from those who are already successful at it. So what better way to learn than by shadowing someone who is in a career that you would eventually like to be in as well? As we highlight the importance of job shadowing, we encourage you to explore ways on how you can shadow a professional who is in your desired field.

Although they vary, job shadowing provides you with a close-up experience of what it’s like to do a specific job that you’re interested in. It will give you a better understanding of what you may be getting into and whether you would like to pursue that profession before you actually do so. If you’d like to learn more about how you can participate in job shadowing, check out this Indeed article that provides you with steps on how to do so.


Curated Employers on Handshake

When it comes to your job search, knowing the history of a potential employer may prove to be valuable information to you. With the curated employers tool on Handshake, you’re able to discover certain things about an employer who may be looking for people just like you! The curated employers tool shows you employers who:

  • Typically hire from UM
  • Are Close to Campus
  • Are popular with alumni
  • Have great internship programs
  • Invest in Diversity Equity and Inclusion initiatives
  • Are lesser-known employers but have great jobs
What makes this so valuable is that it shows you the type of candidates they attract to their company. Whether they favor UM students or are seeking to enhance DEI initiatives, this can be helpful to you when applying.

Not only can this tool give you an idea of what an employer is looking for, but it also highlights certain things that you may be looking for, such as great internship programs or an easy commute from campus to your potential future place of employment!

Angelisa Fernandez

Guest Experience Assistant

Meet Angelisa Fernandez, a sophomore Health Science major and Psychology major with a minor in Biology from Miami, FL! Aside from her role at Toppel, she is also the secretary for the American Society of Pre-Dental Students and UNICEF, as well as the membership chair for First Gen Canes.

As someone who wants to pursue a career in dentistry, she realized that she had to #LevelUp and experience new things related to becoming a dentist. This led her to get more involved in the Pre-Dental Club on campus and now she is on the executive board of the organization! She also took a dental assisting course over the summer that has allowed her to become a certified dental assistant.

Piece of Advice:

“Never stop learning and growing as a person. For us to live life to the fullest, we must constantly look for ways to improve ourselves and our knowledge.”
