Whether you want to educate the next generation of public health professionals about your company or actively recruit them for positions, our Career and Professional Development Office is here to assist you. We encourage you to create a Handshake employer account for our new streamlined content management system for listing jobs, internships and other experiential opportunities (job shadowing, on site visits, challenges/competitions, etc).  This system is aligned with the UCLA Career Center, allowing for employers to reach a wider student population on campus.
