Students within the UW Department of Environmental and Occupational Health receive career development and job search support from our Career Services. In addition to personal career advising, employer information sessions, and career development workshops, DEOHS students and recent alumni have access to university-wide resources such as our HuskyJobs board. For more information on DEOHS Career Services, current students should visit the Career and Training Resources page on Portal.
Workshops and Employer Information Sessions
Our department sponsors Student Career Development Workshops as well as employer information sessions to prepare current students for careers in the field. The events provide an opportunity to build relationships between the business community, the university, and students. Students, faculty, and public health leaders from across the Pacific Northwest meet to discuss the varied employment opportunities available for environmental and occupational health graduates. Attendees generally include representatives from industry, consulting, governmental agencies and advocacy groups.
Career advising appointments are available to current students and recent graduates from the UW Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences. Topics can cover (but are not limited to): job/internship search, resume and cover letters, problem solving, networking, and general questions. Our students also have access to internal internship boards and a LinkedIn networking group.
