Fall 2014 Career Boot Camp Line Up

Fall Line-up for Job, Internship and Networking Boot-camps!!


Ready to get started on your job or internship search? Want to get a great career "intensive" under your belt this fall in just four weeks? Need someone to whip you into career-ready shape??

If so, check out one of our Fall Semester Boot Camps!


Space is limited to only 10 students per section!


Boot camps are intensive, mini-courses designed to motivate you in your job search, lower stress by offering concrete strategies to help you reach your goals, and give you scheduled time each week to work on your future!

After four one-hour intense and selective sessions boot campers will express clearly defined field, function and firm goals; create one or two targeted resumes, networking notes and cover notes. Our teachers will help you identify a hit list of ten places or people to contact, and guide you through your first attempt. If you can manage all of that, we'll also discuss interviewing and next steps!

Kriti Thapa, MPH, starting medical school at University of Rochester School of Medicine this fall

I graduated in May 2013 with a BA in Biology and a minor in Epidemiology. As I am a Rochester Early Medical Scholar (UofR's combined 8 year BA/BS-MD program) and finished my undergraduate studies a year early (3 years instead of 4), I completed a Masters of Public Health (MPH) in Epidemiology/Biostatistics in New York City from 2013-2014. While pursuing my MPH, I worked as a Research Associate on the New York City Health an Nutrition Examination (collaborative project between NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and the CUNY School of Public Health) and on the Hilton-Westat Foster Youth Initiative. After graduating form my MPH program, I spent the past summer as a Postgraduate Fellow at the Yale School of Medicine.

I will be starting medical school at the University of Rochester School of Medicine this August! 

Two pieces of advice I can give:


First, do not to be afraid to ask for help from anyone from peers to professors. Noone expects us to know everything--after all, we're all students! With this regard, there are many invaluable resources on campus from our Departmental Offices to the Career Center that will help us attain our goals.


Second, explore fearlessly! The UR curriculum was phenomenal and encouraged me to take courses that I hadn't considered before. In fact, it's flexibility, along with research opportunities with faculty, helped me discover my passion for public health and fueled my love for medicine further!
