Personal Update

My first year working on my Master of Public Health is done.

I’m doing a summer internship at Franklin County Health Department. It’s a great place to work, and I’m really enjoying it. Right now I’m analyzing the data from a project on infant mortality in Ohio. My supervisor has also arranged for me to go on some inspection tours, once he learned I wanted to be a registered sanitarian.

I’ve actually been working at this internship since May. This little personal update is almost two months late.

 

My Long Absence

I really have no excuse for it.  Sure, I’ve been busy, but I’ve also been dealing with a lot of disappointment.  I haven’t been able to find a job, and at the end of August, my work at the OARDC in Wooster ended.  So here I am back in Columbus with my family, still searching for a job and still working on getting that article published.

My Interview

My interview went well, overall, except when my interviewers asked me some questions about kitchen safety that I didn’t know the answers to.  I felt like I was being given a pop quiz.  Also, it turns out the job mostly covers food safety on the retail level, not on the farm level, which I’m used to.

I just found out that I didn’t get the job.  I didn’t really expect too much, but I’m still very disappointed.  At least they actually let me know.
