SPH Career Lab

This fall, SPH Career Services launched Career Lab, a new initiative empowering students to take ownership of their career development. Every Wednesday the Career Lab is open from 10 am-4 pm for students to work on career planning activities such as resume development, interview preparation, LinkedIn Profile creation, or graduate school admission. A career coach and peer mentors are available to support, brainstorm, and encourage students during their progress. This open-space concept proves to be a model students favor. In the first semester, 158 students visited the Career Lab including 131 undergraduate students, 22 masters-level students, and 5 students pursuing doctoral degrees. Career Lab will continue throughout the spring semester to support students in their career readiness.
