Tips on getting a job in Healthcare?
July 25, 2013 6:41 AM   Subscribe

I am trying to make a career change. I'm really interested in healthcare but I'm having trouble breaking in. Most non entry-level jobs require direct healthcare experience but I only have some indirect experience (a couple healthcare clients from 5 years of traditional marketing/consulting). Any tips for someone looking to make a career change? Thanks!

"Healthcare" is a pretty broad area. Can you be more specific?

For example - do you want to work for a provider of healthcare (including as an administrator), in public health, health policy, government health programs...

Also, your general location might help.

Do you want to do the same kind of work you did in your marketing/consulting? Do you have a good relationship with those healthcare clients?

It would really help if you could flesh out this question, like, a lot.

Clerks/Unit Assistants are basically like a secretary on a hospital floor. You need admin experience but you will get a lot of exposure to medical language and personnel which could help you learn more about the different jobs in the field.
