Review resumes and cover letters 

Resume writing is subjective and styles and preferences can vary by industry.  Resume review sessions can be part of a resume workshop or we can offer an industry specific resume review day.Click here to sign-up.

Do you find that candidates interviewing for positions at your organization are not fully prepared for the interview?  Share your insight and expertise and practice a mock interview with a UIC SPH student.  Contact Liz Herrera at eherre3@uic.edu for more information.

Participate in a speed networking event 

SPH Career Services hosts an annual Speed Networking Event in October.  We are always looking for alumni and employers to participate in this event. Students have the opportunity to rotate to different tables and network with public health professionals to engage in conversation and learn about their career journey and gain industry insight. Contact Liz Herrera at eherre3@uic.edu for more information.

Round table discussion 

SPH students enjoy learning and hearing career stories from alumni in a more intimate and informal setting.  Sign-up for a round table discussion and share your career insight with a small group of students during morning coffee, afternoon brown bag lunch or after work hours. Click here to sign-up.
