When to Seek Professional Career Coaching

Does this sound familiar?

  • You've just graduated with your MPH and now ready to take on the world. But how do you find the jobs you hoped to find waiting for you?
  • You're great at your work, but you know that there is something more for you out there. Is it time to go back to school?
  • You want to grow and be ready for the next big challenge. You've read books on leadership and gone to classes and trainings. But you're feeling stuck and not sure what to do next.

You've tried figuring out the next steps on your own. You wish there was an independent, objective sounding board where you could talk through your ideas out loud and map out your next steps. Guess what? There is APHA's career coaches can guide you.

Expect something different than you've experienced before: while coaching happens through a conversation, working with a professional coach is unlike the talks you have with other people in your life. You'll talk. The coach will listen. And ask you insightful questions to gently push you to focus and clarify the issues, direction, and actions you take to move forward.

APHA offers online career coaching through Public Health CareerMart Career Development Center. Take a moment and see if you can find the coach that's right for you.

Congratulations, public health graduates!
