How to Refer Students and Employers

The Career Services Office does not place students in internships but provides resources for employers to identify and select quality FIU students and alumni.

  • FIU Career Services accords equal opportunity to all placement registrants without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, age, gender, disability, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, military status or veteran status.
  • All employers recruiting through Career Services are likewise expected to conform to Equal Employment Opportunity regulations and related legislation in their recruitment and hiring practices.
Services for Students

We encourage our faculty to direct students and alumni to the Career Services Office. Registered students have access to employers who are actively seeking student interns for varying majors and backgrounds. Employers are brought onto campus to conduct information sessions, meet and greets, practice interviews, career fairs, and much more.

Through the Career Services Office, students can utilize the Panther JOBlink online job listings system. There FIU students have access to internship listings 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In addition to our online system, we offer on campus career coaching, career and professional assessments, and workshops; all geared to prepare students for future careers.

Please refer students to Mr. Matt Tanner, Assistant Director of Internships, CDM, at mrtanner@fiu.edu or 305-348-6725.
