Career Champions Network

Career Champions Network Logo careerchampionsnetwork_summer2020_v1-01.png

The Toppel Career Center’s Career Champions Network initiative engages and prepares faculty and staff in the University of Miami community to feel comfortable sharing up to date and relevant career development information with the students they work with on a daily basis. Faculty and staff have consistent interactions with students across campus -- interactions for which the Career Champions Network initiative is aimed to equip, guide and connect faculty and staff to confidently and accurately carry out.

What is the Career Champions Network?

The main goal behind the Career Champions Network is to prepare our students as much as possible to be professionally ready for opportunities during and after their time at the University of Miami. Through a series of workshops and presentations, faculty and staff will feel prepared to powerfully and deliberately assist students with their career development and become very knowledgeable about the resources and services offered to students at the Toppel Career Center.
