For Employers

Professionals from Atlanta and beyond can discover a wealth of talent at the Rollins School of Public Health, a highly acclaimed, CEPH-accredited program focused on educating the next generation of diverse public health leaders. Our students receive the MPH, MSPH, or PhD degree from one of six departments (Behavioral Sciences and Health Education, Biostatistics and Bionformatics, Epidemiology, Environmental Health, Global Health, and Health Policy and Management) within the school. However, the skill set is similar across all disciplines, and our students and alumni often develop substantial cross-departmental experience or professional experience in fields other than their home department. See skill sets here.

The Office of Career Development is pleased to assist organizations with their recruiting needs. Our professional and knowledgeable staff will connect you with current students, soon-to-be graduates, and alumni searching for career opportunities at all professional levels.

We are pleased to provide the following services to our employers:

Confidentiality. Employers are expected to maintain the confidentiality of student information, regardless of the source, including personal knowledge, written records/reports, and computer databases. An employer should not disclose information about a student to another organization without their prior written consent, unless necessitated by health and/or safety considerations.

Accurate information. Employers are expected to provide accurate information about their organizations and employment opportunities. This includes, but is not limited to, positions available, responsibilities, career advancement opportunities, and benefits.

Time frame for accepting offers. Employers are expected to provide students with a reasonable amount of time to make a decision about accepting an employment offer. The Office of Career Development asks employers to allow students at least one (1) week to make their decisions.

Timely communication. Employers are expected to inform students of their status in the hiring process and communicate hiring decisions within the agreed upon time frame.

Fair treatment. If an employer is required to revoke a job offer that a student has accepted because of changing conditions within the company, the student is entitled to a fair and equitable course of action. That action can include, but is not limited to, financial assistance and outplacement service.

Testing information. Employers should inform students in advance of any testing, the purpose of the tests, and their policies regarding disclosure of test results.

Nondiscrimination. Employers are expected to avoid discrimination in their recruitment activities and to follow equal employment opportunity and affirmative action principles.

Reporting Salary/Hiring Information. The Office of Career Development requests employers to inform us of all offers of employment that are extended to students in order to ensure that we maintain accurate statistics regarding student employment. Organization's employment records are kept strictly confidential and used only for statistical purposes.
