When I think of what Career Services does for our students, I usually think automatically of the Career Fair. And while the Career Fair is the main event each year, (you can read my blog about last year’s fair here), the Office of Career Services does far more.
In addition to meeting one on one with students for career counseling, Career Services runs events and workshops throughout the year to provide career advice and opportunities to connect with employers. From tips on how to succeed when networking, how to arrange your resume and CV, preparing for interviews and more, Career Services offer a wide array of resources to help students and alumni be successful.
Career Services also maintains a database of Public Health jobs around the world exclusively for students and alumni. JHSPHConnect is a central recourse for students. In addition, through Passport Connect, students and alumni looking for jobs specifically outside of the US have access to tools for what is expected in those countries. In essence, it’s a globally minded job resource for our students and their families as they look for global jobs.
