Networking with Alumni

BUSPH boasts a dedicated network of alumni who serve as role models for aspiring public health professionals. Talented professionals in their own right, our alumni give generously of their time and energy to enhance the overall educational and professional development of our student body.

As students, you are able to meet and learn from alumni in a variety of ways:

Informational Interviews
Alumni often meet in person, by skype, or by phone to speak with students about their careers, and to offer career advice.

Panels and Workshops
Throughout the year, alumni guests speak on industry and career panels that are sponsored by Career Services, and often in partnership with academic departments. Additionally, alumni have shared their expertise by facilitating workshops.

Annual Alumni Network Event
This fun and interactive event brings students and alumni together for an evening of learning and mingling.

Annual Career Fair
BUSPH employers are often BUSPH alumni. At our annual career fair, students have an opportunity to learn about organizations and jobs from alumni in the field.

Remote Job Searches

BUSPH alumni are all over the world. Students may contact alumni through email and phone to network and learn about public health needs of different regions. In addition to using the BUSPH alumni contact list, students are encouraged to join the BUSPH Alumni LinkedIN group.

Boston University Career Advisory Network

The Career Advisory Network allows BU students and alumni to connect, network, and discuss different professions. Alumni volunteers on the Career Advisory Network (CAN) are available to talk informally, share their experiences, and help clarify goals. BUSPH students are encouraged to use this great resource.
