Career Preparations

Members of the faculty and staff meet to define career goals and to discuss job search procedures. Students receive assistance through the Professional Development course and SPH Career Services in preparing resumes, writing cover letters, and interviewing. The department also runs seminars to acquaint students with the various facets of the industry, and the skills and interests that best fit those different aspects.

Student groups host industry speakers who discuss their own careers and career options for the students as well as hold mock interviews between alumni and students.

Additional assistance comes from our alumni, with whom we have an extensive and active networking system. They are located throughout the 50 states and internationally. Many of our alumni are top-level executives who lend significant support to the department.
