Looking for Jobs or Internships?
Handshake is Tulane's career management center where both internal and external jobs, internships, fellowships, and student employment are listed. Handshake is additionally used to list all career related events for the school year. In SPHTM Career Services, we actively use Handshake to post and promote on campus positions as well as public health jobs, internships, and practicums. If you would like a Handshake tutorial, we are happy to cover this in a Career Advising appointment.
Looking for Networking Platforms?
Tulane Connect is a virtual platform where Tulane students, alumni, faculty, and staff can reach out and start conversations.
LinkedIn is another great virtual platform for connecting. Tulane University and Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine have school pages on LinkedIn. There is also a Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine Alumni Association Group.

Career Resources for Identity Groups
Your identity is important as a student but also as an emerging public health professional! The resources listed are sorted by identity group, but this is not an all inclusive list, so please reach out if you don't see one of your identities listed and would like to find additional resources. Remember that when evaluating employers for jobs or internships, it is important to consider employers' mission, values, and goals along with demographics, recruitment strategies, and the presence of affinity groups at work.
