I am looking to enter the world of film and TV, with a particular interest in screenwriting and comedies. I have worked at the Rhode Island International Film Festival, and am currently interning with WGBH’s Antiques Roadshow. I would love to hear about advice on breaking into this field after graduation, as well as more about the film scene in specific locations, as I am wondering about a potential relocation.
I just graduated in May with a B.A. in Health: Science, Society, and Policy and I am interested in pursuing a career in community health promotion. To me, this entails considering the roles of the built environment and social and environmental determinants of health to come up with ways to improve physical activity, nutrition, and other health trends in a community. Ideally, I would like to work in a setting where I can combine research, theory, and practice. I hope to gain some experience in the workforce before seeking a dual master’s degree in public health and urban planning. I would like to connect with Brandeis alumni who are in the public health field with similar interests who may be able to offer advice and insight into career opportunities.
My name is Eric Shen and I am currently a senior that is majoring in biology and minoring in business. I had the ultimate goal of finding a job where I can combine both my passions for healthcare and business together. I later realized down my college career that I had a passion for business as well. Although I have strong skills in analytical lab work and research projects, I am currently trying to gain more experience in the business world as an administrative assistant at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and a marketing intern at Performance Architects, Inc. I am looking for any career advice or potential job leads where I can apply my technical analytical skills and knowledge garnered from my healthcare experience and apply it in a business setting. Thank you for your time and consideration!

I am a senior at Brandeis graduating with a BS in biology and in environmental studies with a minor in chemistry. I would like to find a job that combines both my majors (biology and environmental studies) such as environmental health and research. Are there any Brandeis alums with a similar background to mine? I plan on continuing to graduate school after a couple of years of experience. Any advice would be appreciated!

Hello! I am a senior majoring in Neuroscience and HSSP. I am primarily interested in cancer research but I am also interested in general neuroscience and public health related research as well. Seeking advice on a career in research (academia and industry) and how to apply to lab positions. I have worked in three labs so far, two as a student researcher (currently working on a thesis) and one as a lab technician. I am investigating the factors contributing to the differences seen in glucocorticoid sensitivity between older and younger women and men. I would love to talk to you about your career path, how you got to where you are now, and other relevant or future opportunities. Thank you so much for your time, I really appreciate it!
