Postgrad study definitely helped with
my career goals, for a lot of the jobs I was
applying for, one of the requirements
was to have a Masters in a relevant health
discipline and often Public Health was one
of those. I was working fulltime when I was
studying my masters, but gaining that
degree helped me progress in my career.
