Health & Science Newsletter
October 19, 2022 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources
As mentioned in a previous newsletter, most application timelines for the health and science industry start in early Spring. Generally, the exception is health and life science consulting, rotational leadership development programs (sample employers here), and fellowships. If you are interested in a fellowship or internship program after graduation, my recommendation is to start identifying programs and track application deadlines now. Most deadlines are between now and the end of February. Here’s a few to add to your list.
- Princeton in Africa | Due Date: Oct 26
- Princeton in Asia | Due Date: Nov 1
- Mickey Leland International Hunger Fellowship | Due: Fall
- Ruckelshaus Fellowship with Meridian Institute | Due Date: mid-Jan
- Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI) : Due Date: Jan 16
- CDC Public Health Associate Program : Due Date: Jan 25
- The AIF Banyan Impact Fellowship | Due Date: Jan 31
- CDC Fellowships | Due Date: Mostly Feb
Peace Corps Advancing Health Professionals and NIH IRTA post-bac program are also popular post-graduate programs, however, I could not find any set application deadlines. Of course, there are an abundance of service programs to consider if you are seeking a shorter-term work experience post-graduation, including Jesuit Volunteer Corps, Peace Corps, City Year, AmeriCorps, and many more.
All the best,

Don’t Flub the Soft Skills: Here’s How To Include Soft Skills on Your Resume
Source: Resume Worded
The goal to demonstrating soft skills, such as teamwork and communication, on your resume is to show, not tell. The author recommends staying away from listing skills in a skills section. Rather, the recommendation is to weave soft skills into your bullet statements. This article provides specific examples for numerous soft skills including teamwork, initiative, leadership, problem solving, organizational, communication, creative and design, conflict resolution, and attention detail.
Drop-ins are Monday – Friday, 1-3pm, in person at Cawley, One Leavey and virtual 6:30-7:30pm on Tuesday and Thursday.
Appointments: Virtual and in-person appointments are available via Handshake. Sign up under ‘Career Center,’ then ‘Appointments’, then ‘Industry Advising,” then ‘Health, Science, and Technology’.
