Global Health Career Readiness Workshop Series -- Session 2: Practical Challenges and Considerations for Global Health Career Development



To allow more time for discussions and participant questions, this workshop will be extended to 90 minutes.

McGill Global Health Programs is pleased to partner with ThriveHire to offer a hands-on Career Readiness Program to help global and public health students learn tangible ways to translate their skills, experiences, and knowledge into job opportunities.

The program will entail three online sessions: two workshops (accompanied with materials and hands-on activities) covering various career topics, and a final networking event. Some of these include current hiring trends, different career pathways in global public health, practical and ethical considerations in career development, salary considerations, approaches to working locally and globally, and more. Students who attend all three sessions will receive a certificate of completion and enter a draw to win a free, professional CV review by ThriveHire!

  • Workshop Session 2, Practical challenges and considerations for global health career development is taking place on Thursday, November 11th from 12pm-1:00pm EDT.
