Welcome to Career Services

Career Services provides a collection of public health resources that will assist all registered students and alumni in their career endeavors and ultimately in their career success. Our goal in Career Services is to assist you in successfully connecting and building long-term relationships with employers. We invite you to explore the website or stop by Career Services in RAS E-201 and make use of the wide variety of resources and services that are offered.


Job-Ops is an online system available to the UTSPH community that allows students and alumni to search for jobs, upload multiple resumes, cover letters, reference letters and send online resume referrals to employers. Employers are able to post and manage job listings, view and make resume referrals of qualified candidates.

Mentors can also use Job-Ops to connect with UTSPH students by sharing their experiences and valuable information in the field of public health. Faculty members can be kept abreast of happenings in career services, see what potential employers are recruiting SPH students and view which students are utilizing the system.
