PublicHealthCareers.org was launched in late 2022 as a centralized and engaging option for those seeking employees in governmental public health. Job seekers visiting the site can learn more about public health career options and connect with open job opportunities from across the country. Governmental public health agencies may post open positions that will appear in PublicHealthCareers.org searches by entering job vacancies on the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials’ (ASTHO) Job Board. The process is simple and easy, and there is no cost to the agency.
