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.

Donna ShalalaWe are celebrating our Centennial this year! As part of the celebration, each department is assigned a month to highlight their field of study. For November, it’s the Department of Epidemiology (EPI).

To fully celebrate the many focusses and accomplishments in the EPI department, today there are a series of events planned. In addition to a poster session with first, second, and third place prizes, there will be a scavenger hunt for faculty members. However, the highlight of the afternoon is the Conversation with Donna Shalala called “Policy in the Face of Uncertainty: The Critical Role of Epidemiology.” A strong figure in the field of Public Health, Shalala was the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services under President Clinton from 1993-2001 and currently leads the Clinton Foundation. Among her many awards are the Nelson Mandela Award for Health and Human Rights and the Presidential Medal of Freedom (the highest civilian honor given in the U.S.).

Do you know all the words to “Sweet Home Chicago?”

Even if you don’t, if you’re thinking of following a career in public health, it’s a good time to think about Chicago.

Why?

The Annual Meeting for the American Public Health Association (APHA) will be held October 31-November 4 in Chicago, Illinois. The event expects more than 12,500 public health professionals to attend educational sessions, networking functions, a public health expo and more.

Students should be especially aware of:

Our admissions blog is three years old today! Happy Birthday!

That’s three years of application tips, deadline alerts, “what you’re asking,” event reminders and a few really bad jokes by yours truly (you know you laughed anyway).

It’s a special day for many reasons. Today is also my last day as the voice of the Admissions Blog. I’ve scheduled a few posts over the next month and I’m leaving you in really good hands. I’m certain there will be many good posts in yours and the Admissions Blog’s future.

So long. Farewell. And happy Admissions Blog reading!
