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. 

Why Should I Visit Career Services?

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.

To make an appointment with a career counselor, log into Handshake using your Pitt username and password. Appointments in July 2020 should be made directly with Joan Anson or Kim Abraham.

What is Handshake?

Handshake is an online job board and career management system that provides access to job, internship, fellowship, and postdoctoral opportunities from local, national, and international employers. Handshake replaced Pitt Bridges beginning on July 1, 2020. In addition to the job board, students can use Handshake to schedule an appointment with a career counselor; view and register for workshops and events; and access helpful articles and career information. The University-wide system will contain a Pitt Public Health "career hub" starting August 1st with workshops, events, and resources specific to public health graduate students.
