Episode #122 Public Health Career Planning: 5 Important Steps

On This Episode Of The Public Health Epidemiology Conversations (PHEC) Podcast

This episode is part three of a free coaching series that will help you prepare for public health career success. During this episode, I will share 5 important steps you should follow in your public health career planning. In case this is the first time you’re tuning in, let me briefly recap what has been covered so far, before moving into discussion of the 5 steps.

In episode 120, we focused on why your public health career goals are important. You’d be surprised to know how many people are focused on a job title instead of following their heart to serve. Getting clear at this point makes a huge difference in the long run.

In episode 121, we focused on some common public health career mistakes to avoid. As I’ve worked with many clients over the last couple of years, I’ve noticed several patterns. I talked about 5 common mistakes that people often make, that I want you to avoid. At the end of that episode, I will also shared an important bonus tip.

If you missed either of those, be sure to go back and listen. Even if you did hear them, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to listen to them again and even take notes for yourself.

I’ve been pouring into each of the episodes because I want us all to prepare to hit the ground running in the new year.

If this has been helpful for you, then I encourage you to check out the upcoming workshops.
