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 1, 2019 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.

In Admissions Services, we are often asked about our alumni. Sometimes it’s difficult to answer where and what fields our alumni are working in because of the diverse paths our students take. As you know, Public Health is a massive field. Add in our ten different departments and twelve different types of graduate degrees, and you can start to see why we hesitate to answer.

However, the answers just got a bit easier to share! The recently updated Career Outcomes Survey Report is now available on the Career Services website. All living Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health alumni were surveyed and Career Services received responses from 632 alumni, with 52% of those responses from 2010-2015 graduates. Overall, answers date back to graduation year 1958. This means there is a mix of representation between recent alumni and mid-career to professionally seasoned alumni.

Career Services has provided several versions from the full report and snapshot, as well as shorter versions broken down by department and the degrees within the department.

You can also always check on our alumni, and even see who some are, on that Alumni Career Insights section of LinkedIn.
