Students take notes while learning how to properly write resumes at Topell Career Center's "Are You Corporate Ready?" seminar.

As a new Hurricane, you have lots of learning ahead, and here at UM we have many nicknames and acronyms. Toppel refers to the Toppel Career Center. We are located on Stanford Circle, next to the Convenience Store.

Toppel has many career events, services, and resources to offer you throughout your time at UM, and it is important to begin thinking about your career plans during your freshman year. We can help you choose a major, learn about different careers, and find an internship. Additionally, we have a FourZONE plan to keep you on track. As a freshman, you should think about joining at least one club or student organization; you will learn more about opportunities during Orientation. You should also register with Toppel's career management system called CaneZone. After you get on campus, go to www.miami.edu/toppel and enter your C number to create an account. Your C number is your student ID number and you will need to learn this to access many campus resources.

To learn more about how Toppel can help you, come to one of our Open Houses on Monday and Tuesday during Orientation; you can meet our staff, take a tour, and eat free pizza. We have professional staff, graduate student assistants, peer advisors, and undergraduate student assistants who are all excited to meet you. Here is a brief message from one of our Peer Advisors:
