New website launched for health job seekers looking at government roles

The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials is launching Publichealthcareers.org, a website for job seekers interested in roles in public health.

The site includes features to search for national and state public health jobs. In the future, the site will also have postings for internships, a job-skills quiz and resources for those looking for their first job in public health, according to a Nov. 2 ASTHO news release.

"We have seen unprecedented interest in public health careers as a result of COVID-19," ASTHO CEO Michael Fraser said. "There is record enrollment in schools and programs of public health and great interest in public health training programs like the Public Health AmeriCorps. Simultaneously, we have a large portion of the workforce ready to retire. We really needed to help match job seekers with available jobs in a new way, and Publicheatlhcareers.org will do just that."
