As of June 2021
PH SPOT was founded in 2017 after Sujani Siva, the founder of this platform, saw a gap in the online space for a career development resource dedicated specifically for public health professionals. Sujani identified this gap after she spent many hours from 2013 – 2016, guiding public health students and new grads one-on-one with their careers. As this was not a scalable solution, Sujani decided to create PH SPOT to reach, inspire and support a larger number of public health professionals.
PH SPOT initially started as a job board and evolved into what it is today featuring community-generated career stories on the blog, a podcast to complement the blog, and resources and tools for studying, working and upskilling in public health.
As a trusted career development resource, we are recommended and relied upon by students, new graduates, academic institutions, and public health organizations.
We are a group of dedicated individuals who are on a mission to help our peers build their dream public health career – join our growing community!
