As the Miami Dade County school year winds down, many students are gearing up for summer opportunities. Here, on LaborMiami.org we are excited to be a resource to students of all levels while they secure their summer plans and build their experience. As Miami’s premier career development portal, it is our goal to connect Miamians to the tools, training, and information they need to build successful careers in industries that are powering Miami’s growing economy.
So, how can a student use LaborMiami.org to land their summer job opportunity?
First, students of all levels should start by visiting the Student Pathway on LaborMiami.org. From there, students should choose the tile that most appropriately represents their level or need. Labor Miami offers resources for middle and high school students, undergraduate and graduate students, international students of all levels, technical students, and adults looking to continue their education.
Many students are looking for internships or apprenticeships this summer and LaborMiami.org has curated lists of the resources available in Miami Dade County. Click internships or apprenticeships to explore these options further. If interested, high school students, should have completed their materials for the Summer Youth Internship Program by May 27th, please contact Princetta James at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for more information. Other programs have rolling deadlines, please email the respective contact listed for more information.
What if a student were looking for other job or enrichment opportunities outside of internships and apprenticeships?
Labor Miami has got you covered. Visit our Job Seeker pathway to learn more about finding jobs in Miami. Students can also visit our Enrichment Services or Volunteer pages to find ways to get involved in the community this month.
If there is a student who is looking for opportunities but doesn’t know where to start, the “I Don’t Know” or “Top Jobs” tabs are great places to start. These tabs will provide students with data about the current trending industries in Miami and what they can do to break into them.
LaborMiami.org also shares additional resources and wraparound services to help students with things like professional attire, food, and transportation services. LaborMiami.org is a students’ one- stop- shop to finding all they need to be successful this summer and beyond.
