Mentoring

Prepare Yourself for a Competitive Job Market

The Pitt Public Health alumni and public health professionals listed below have generously volunteered to serve as mentors to our students. Current students may contact mentors on this list to request a resume review, discuss strategies for networking, or simply conduct an informational interview with them about their career path. We recommend that you select a mentor whose profession most closely matches your own career goals.

Getting Started

  • Contact Joan Anson for tips on working with a mentor before you email or phone any of the below mentors. Pay attention to the mentor’s preferred method of contact.
  • After receiving the etiquette tips from Joan, choose a mentor from the list below who most closely meets your own career goals.
  • E-mail that mentor with the subject line: Pitt Public Health Mentor Request. Introduce yourself in the e-mail. Suggest a few areas in which you need guidance (e.g., informational interview, resume review, networking, or job search strategies). It is best to ask about the mentor’s availability (and not assume a large time commitment) to provide guidance in person, over the phone, or over e-mail. Be courteous about time and be willing to accommodate the mentor’s schedule as much as is possible.
