Don’t miss out on meeting successful Panther professionals in your career field!

During Panther Alumni Week, our alumni return to campus as guest speakers. Their goal? To inspire YOU. They’re ready to share valuable advice and answer your questions. Get involved to expand your network and make connections that could lead to future internships or job opportunities. The best part? All you have to do is show up! 

Know any inspiring alumni? Encourage them to get involved!

This is the perfect opportunity to find and connect with FIU alumni who inspire you. LinkedIn is a great way to start. Tell them about PAW. Let them know you’d love to see and hear from them on campus (we can help you figure out what to say). Even if they can’t make the event, you’ve just opened the door to a new professional relationship with a fellow Panther!

There are many ways to get involved:


  • Invite alumni to speak to your student organization - Connect your peers with alumni to cultivate new connections
  • Attend events held by your school/college - Many schools and colleges create engaging events for students and alumni during PAW.
  • Watch alumni present during a webinar or Google Hangout - Industry leaders, career experts and notable alumni present webinars to the FIU community. Topics can be career or job search related, best practices or industry trends in your field, or informational interview format.
