The career services Web pages are designed to help you strategically approach a career destination or advanced training opportunity in public health.
Knowing what you like to do and can do well is important in focusing your career objectives. What are your values regarding money, prestige, and creativity? Do you prefer working alone or on a team? Do you see yourself in academia or in industry? On Wall Street or in a rural village? What are your goals one year from now? Five years from now? What are your preferences concerning geographic location, environment, type and size of organization?
All of these factors - values, goals, work preferences, personal traits, interest areas, and skills - influence your career objectives. Using these online resources to compliment meetings with career services staff and your faculty can be very helpful no matter what stage you're in: exploring, learning, or applying.
