We are committed to supporting students and alumni during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you are stuck in the job search or have questions about how the pandemic is affecting the public health profession, we are here virtually to connect over any and all career and professional concerns. To chat virtually with us, please reach out to Catherine Gergen (Assistant Director of Career Services, email@example.com) or Abby Lukens (Career Advisor, firstname.lastname@example.org) directly.
Job Searching during COVID-19 is an instructional guide for students and alumni currently in the job search. It discusses changes you'll want to make to your traditional search and frequently asked questions about how COVID-19 is affecting the public health industry. The School also maintains a dedicated COVID-19 webpage where we encourage you to stay up to date on the school's operations and read about the impact our students, faculty, and alumni are making on the front lines.
Our Career Services office works with current graduate students in the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, undergraduate public health majors, and recent public health alumni, guiding them in their job search and professional development.
Career Offerings Include:
One on One Career Coaching, Resume and Cover Letter Review, On Campus Employment Information Sessions, Mock Interviewing, Tulane Connect (an alumni and student engagement platform), Career Preparation Workshops, Tailored Public Health Career Resource Guides, Handshake (a Career Platform for jobs, internships, and fellowships), and more!
For those of you who have worked with our team before, you know that we traditionally operate out of the Career Studio in the Tidewater Building. The Career Studio is designed to be a walk in space to have conversations about your professional life, drawing from the expertise of your peers and career advisors. While the physical studio space is currently closed during COVID-19, we are connecting with students and maintaining this model virtually.
