Supporting Students

Whether you're looking for an internship, applying to graduate school or searching for a job, PAW connects you with FIU alumni to help you along the way.

Former Panthers engage with students and share their career insights, successes and obstacles they faced.

We bring professional alumni to campus and host a week-long program with events, panels, and in-person and virtual networking meetups. 

All PAW events are free, and all you have to do is register and show up.

Host a PAW Event

Students are encouraged to reach out to FIU alumni and host their own PAW event. Clubs and organizations should invite former members to speak to current students.

Recruit Other FIU Alumni

This is the perfect opportunity to find and connect with 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’ll 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 several ways to get involved.

Get Involved

  • Invite alumni to speak to your student organization. Connect your peers with alumni to cultivate new connections. We can connect you with alumni.
  • Attend events held by your school or college. Many schools and colleges create engaging events for students and alumni during PAW. View PAW Events.
  • Watch alumni present during a webinar or Google Hangout. Industry leaders, career experts and 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.
  • Email Alex Rokaw at to host your own PAW event.
