The Launch Pad Job Board – How it works and why we’re doing it

Launch Pad Job Board, Website Leave a Comment

One of the founding tenets of The Launch Pad in 2008 was for it to be a sort of “career center of the future” that could provide a place for those students and alumni that wanted to pursue their own ideas as opposed to trying to work for someone else. Over the years we’ve provided free consulting for those people. Now we’re trying to help them connect with each other and with startups in Miami.

We are very proud to announce our new Startup Job Board. It is, to our knowledge, the first university job board that allows ventures to post positions for not only employees and interns, but co-founders that actually connects with the larger career center job postings.

How it works is we as The Launch Pad have created an employer account on Toppel’s job board (hireacane.com). Jobs posted here will also be posted there for the general student population but the application process will all take place on our website. Any client of The Launch Pad will be allowed to post, even without having formed a company, and any startup that is looking to hire UM students will also be allowed to post.

We’re hoping for it to become a highly utilized service and are very excited to provide it. Postings may take a few days before they are published since we will have to evaluate each one individually. If you have any feedback, please feel free to email us at um@thelaunchpad.org or if you want to check it out now, click here! Thanks!
