For Faculty and Staff

Introduction

Students studying at the Boston University School of Public Health are motivated to advance in their careers and make a difference in the world.  Public Health students can explore a plethora of opportunities across multiple sectors and functional areas, and often seek the advice of faculty and staff advisors to:

  • find out about career paths, organizations and roles that might be a fit for them
  • find out about your experience, and what you would advise them if they wanted a similar career
  • find alumni and others in the field for informational interviews, practicums and jobs
  • find support because they may be feeling “stuck” in their practicum or job search

The following sections contain detailed information (with links) regarding the most common topics that students ask about.
