The likelihood of getting struck by lightning in any year is 1 in 700,000. Sometimes, getting struck by a lightning bolt of inspiration can seem just as rare. When those moments do come, when an idea or a fresh way of looking at a problem is suddenly before you, it’s time to act on what you’ve learned…and then share it.
MPHGrads offers you just the platform for sharing those public health ah-ha moments with the people who can benefit the most. This is the place where you can share what is working for you, things you have learned on the job, ways you have improved your work system, and ideas for improving public health as a whole.
It’s also the place to share the mundane, day-to-day tasks that seem boring to you, but are inspiring to others who hope to follow in your footsteps. The sky’s the limit for the value you have to bring from your public health experience. Remember, your insights can have a much larger impact if they are spread to other MPH grads throughout the world.
Join the MPHGrads forum to share a thought, post a job, or reach out to colleagues with a question. Contact me if you have a more drawn out idea or lesson learned. We can publish your thoughts as an MPHGrads article.
Publishing online not only helps other grads, it also helps you by enriching your resume. Link your article to your website, Linkedin page, or Facebook page to show future employers yet another reason why you would be an outstanding addition to their team.
Remember, it’s together that we MPH grads can change the world. Join the discussion!
