San Francisco, CAUSA
October 21, 2013
I have just moved here from Ireland on a 12-month work visa. I chose to come to the USA as I would like to work in preventive health which is a very underdeveloped industry in Ireland.
I am a recent graduate of B.Sc. Sport Science and Health with a major in Health Promotion. I have also worked in event management/fundraising in both professional and voluntary capacities and have experience in research and health education
I would like to work in Health Promotion, my specific interest areas are youth physical activity/sports development, lifestyle interventions, health education and disease prevention.
In Ireland I was very active in the nonprofit sector and regularly attended talks, workshops and conferences where I would meet people working in my interest areas. Now that I am in a totally new place I would like to meet people who can give me advice on jobseeking here as well as offer other connections. It seems that applying for jobs here is very different than in Ireland and I would like to feel confident that I am going about things the right way and do my research.
