Our Program’s Career Services
We offer a variety of services and resources to support our students and recent alumni with their job searches.
We have a strong network of more than 80 alumni, and we maintain a database (updated annually) with alumni contact and employment information. Our staff can query this database by title, organization, and location, and share contact info with students for those alumni who have elected to network and support future public health professionals. So, for example, if a student lets us know they are looking for a job in Boston, or trying to get a position at Kaiser, or seeking nutrition-related work, we can help them connect to the relevant alumni.
Alumni Email List
After graduation, we sign alumni up for our alumni email list, which we use to share information about jobs, upcoming events, and more.
Being a member of our private LinkedIn group allows students to direct-message other members, even if they are not connected to them on LinkedIn, potentially facilitating networking and job-seeking.
Our faculty advisors are available for meetings to discuss students’ career paths and opportunities.
