A little over a year ago during my senior year, I interviewed with a panel of judges for the Miami Herald’s Silver Knight Awards. Being my first interview, I was not only a nervous wreck but embarrassed myself in front of a panel of respectable judges. Exactly one year from the day I melted in my Silver Knight interviews, I was faced with another interview, this time for a corporate internship with Pepsi. Weeks after interviewing, I was invited to participate in the Sales Development Program. Thank you Career Services for all your help and support throughout my application process. Your programs gave me the confidence to believe in myself and obtain this position. For those applying, remember: “All obstacles can be overcome to achieve your dreams”.

"My experience with Career Services at Florida International University has been wonderful. From day one, the staff has gone above and beyond in supporting me with my career search. The aid I received from the counselors in critiquing my resume and cover letter helped me in getting a job interview on campus. Furthermore Darren Gregory, one of the employment coordinators in the office, also performed a mock interview with me, which essentially assisted me in landing the job!!! As a graduating Panther, I am extremely grateful for the resources offered within Career Services as they helped me in reaching the next phase of my career path. Additionally, I highly recommend that all students take advantage of what their office has to offer."

“In my search for a summer internship, I relied on the help of Career Services. Before my search began Career Services helped me build my resume and tailor it to find an internship in the hospitality industry. Their mock interviews helped me in my interview style and comfort. I am now near the completion of my internship at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel, and I would like to recognize Florida International University’s Career Services Office for their help. Their assistance has helped me find a place where I truly enjoy working. Thank you Career Services and thank you FIU!”

“I was just writing to let you know that I finished the Disney College Program and I found a job! It's a management trainee program with ITT tech. I just want to thank you for all of the work you put into DEI! Because DEI worked with Career Services, I was able to interact with employers all the time through our networking events. I was also able to meet those who worked in FIU's Career Services and learned more about what I was doing wrong and right during interviews and how to make the perfect resume.”
