Employer Testimonal

“One of the best resources for a campus recruiter is partnering with career services. Toppel goes above and beyond with HireACane Academy. HACA 2020 gave me the opportunity to hear from not only career services, but faculty, students, and other campus recruiters. HACA jumpstarted our recruitment efforts resulting in our ability to hire 17 University of Miami students into our intern and full-time campus programs. We are looking forward to attending again this year to gear-up for another successful season!”
