Get Ready to Focus on your Career!

Have you ever wondered what you will do with your degree? If you have, then you are not alone. The great thing is that you have a lot of resources to figure it out. As a Junior here at Indiana University, I still do not know what I want to do with my degree, but I have access to resources to help me figure it out.

Through my classes, I have found what I do and do not like to do. As a volunteer for the SPH Student Ambassadors, I have been exposed to many kinds of events that have shown me the various positions you can go into the Public Health field. Other resources of the Office of Career Services in SPH you would be interested in knowing are:

  • Group Coaching—this brings you together with staff and other students to talk about specific topics that may be beneficial to your future
  • Internship/Job portal—this shows you the vast amounts of internships and jobs that are out there and gives you the opportunity to see many options
  • Events—this calendar offers many different events that affect your future. There are job fairs, meetings with specific employers to learn more information, small lectures to improve certain skills
  • Volunteering—this activity is a great way to get experience in different settings that can result in you finding what you may or may not want to do later

These are just a few of the ways that the School of Public Health offers resources to help you figure out what you can do with your degree.

If you want to be one step closer to figuring out what to do with your degree, come to the Public Health, Safety & Social Services Career Focus event on Tuesday, November 9th from 5-8pm to talk with prospective employers and discuss your options for different career paths. If you aren’t there yet, come to network and get the experience of talking with employers for the future.
