We're here to watch you soar

Now available for fully online Engineering, Hospitality and Public Health students.

We’re not just here to see you graduate, we’re here to watch you soar as a professional. At FIU, you’re learning the ins and outs of your industry through an exceptional degree program. But we’re taking you ten steps further by giving you access to our newest badging pathway–Career Engage!


How it works

Career Engage is a professional readiness path, tailored specifically to your industry, that you can integrate into your current student experience. It’s designed to fuel you with in-demand certifications and skill sets that top employers are looking for to ignite your professional journey upon graduation.

1. Get certified

We'll prepare you for in-demand industry certifications. Take and pass at least one certification exam to count towards the badge.

2. Tap into key skills

Employers are looking for problem solvers and great communicators. You’re going to create a professional profile on LinkedIn, go through a mock interview to get feedback and take a LinkedIn Learning course that will finetune your skills.

3. Build your brand

Bring it all together in an engaging project that focuses on creating your professional statement, defining who you are as a professional, and developing a solid action plan to get what you want out of a career.

Successfully complete these milestones and you’ll have what it takes to stand out. You’ll even earn an official Career Engage badge to show off.


How do I access Career Engage?

Just log in to Canvas and look for the ‘Career Engage’ shell on your dashboard. If you are a fully online Engineering, Hospitality, or Public Health student, access to Career Engage is currently available.

Does Career Engage cost anything?

Career Engage is an optional, complimentary service to our online students. Even though it’s optional, we encourage you to add it to your student journey. Please note that while your program offers courses that will prepare you for in-demand certifications, certification exams that are not covered by your program may be additional.


Are there scholarship opportunities for certification exams?

We have great news! If you are an active student and pass a certification exam that you paid for out of pocket, you will receive a scholarship (up to $1,000) to cover costs once you complete the Career Engage badge.

Is there a deadline to complete Career Engage milestones?

This is an at-your-own-pace pathway that you should complete prior to graduation. We highly recommend that you take certification exams as soon as you complete the prep course since it’s all fresh in your mind. We also encourage that you tap into the ‘key skills’ component and professional branding starting the last year or so of your program. This gives you the timeframe to do it right and when you will need it most.

What can I do with my Career Engage Badge?

You’ve earned bragging rights, so flaunt it! Upload it to LinkedIn or Handshake, add it to your resume and include it in your email signature.

So I completed Career Engage, but what’s next?

Stay tuned! Like we said, we’re here to watch you soar. More exciting initiatives are currently in the works to extend your skills way beyond graduation. As an FIU alum, we’re going to make you a force to be reckoned with as a 21st Century professional.
