As I wrote about last week, Friday was our Public Health Career Fair. It was a huge success with companies filling the school and a steady stream of students coming to the fair throughout the five hours.Career Fair

Jae Jin Suh, who is working on her MPH with a concentration in International Health, told me she was impressed by her fellow students as she listened while waiting in line to talk to the different companies. But most of all she was so grateful to “see all the companies at the same time and ask right then all my questions.” Students agreed, the consensus was they didn’t have to spend nearly as much time seeking out the companies, because the employers were all there, wanting to talk to them and hire a Bloomberg student.

“As an international student, the markings for citizenship requirements helped so much. I didn’t have to waste time talking to a company that I couldn’t work for,” added Carly Babcok an MSPH student in the Health Behavior and Society department.

In it’s 32nd year, we all felt the annual career fair was yet another success.

Career Fair

Every year, Career Services puts together a robust career fair at the beginning of March. I’ve heard from current students that a lot of them have had friends that left the career fair with interviews set up and eventually have jobs lined up that began with interactions at the career fair.

I’m currently working on the final preparations for the Career Fair guidebook; which lists companies represented, what positions they are hiring for and information about the companies themselves. As a result, I can personally attest to the breadth of non-profits, NGOs, government, private companies, and academic institutions represented. In addition, some employers who can’t attend the fair still advertise positions they have open.

The Career Fair is also open to students from other institutions. If you are an undergraduate or graduate student looking for full-time positions, internships, consultancy and fellowship positions in the corporate, government and non-profit sectors, please come! The fair is Friday, March 4, 2016 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The whole Student Affairs office works together that day to help cover the event. For you future Bloomberg students, it’s a wonderful event to look forward to. Check back next week for some students’ opinions on the event.

After a snowy, slushy February, we have sprung into March!

We have a number of events over the next couple weeks you should know about:
