HELPING YOU REACH your CAREER DESTINATION

Knowing what you like to do and can do well is important in focusing your career objectives. What are your goals one year from now? Five years from now? What are your preferences concerning geographic location, work environment, type and size of organization? All of these factors - values, goals, work preferences, personal traits, interest areas, and skills - influence your career objectives.

Whether you are seeking internships, fellowships, or jobs, looking for tips on resume/CV writing or interviewing, or just trying to get started on your job search, Pitt Public Health's career services team can help point you in the right direction and advise you on exploring your future as a public health professional.
