WHAT IS A CAREER COMMUNITY?
A career community consists of a group of students who have career interests that fall into a specific occupational category. This model was implemented to provide a more targeted approach to guiding students through the career development process.
SCHOOL OF PUBLIC HEALTH HAS FOUR CAREER COMMUNITIES IN WHICH TO ENGAGE:
Do you want to provide education, policy development, or administration of programs that promote healthy communities? Perhaps you are interested in health and safety in the workplace, or maybe you want to focus on working with youth and families.
Are you looking to answer critical public health questions? Perhaps you want to conduct research, reduce disease, develop treatment options, or understand health behaviors. Or maybe you want to research how the environment impacts human health. Consider specializing in a field focusing on research.
Do you have an interest in clinical fields such as medicine, physician
assistant, physical therapy, occupational therapy, recreational therapy, or athletic training to help individuals rehabilitate from disease or injury? Are you interested in assisting clients with exercise programs, nutritional guidance, or behavior change to enhance wellness? If so, the Healthcare & Wellness Career Community will provide you with opportunities to learn about career options.
Are you interested in a career related to sports, events, hospitality, tourism, parks & recreation, or the outdoors? Do you want to focus on business aspects, design, and management of programs that improve quality of life through enjoyment of sport and leisure activities? You can enhance health, happiness, and well-being through organizations and programs where people live, work, and play.
WHAT ARE BENEFITS OF JOINING A CAREER COMMUNITY?
