What should I consider when picking a profession in the healthcare field?
I am a grade 12 student that will be studying health science at university in September, but I am still not sure about my career goals beyond post-secondary. #healthcare #health-science
Hi Lera- Choosing a career can be a difficult decision- often people change their mind after they have done work for a few years and find out that they want to change- I think it's a good idea to talk to people in your desired areas and even go to work with them if you can!
Our hospital started a program called the "shadow" program. It offers students the ability to follow a caregiver for a few hours to see what the work is really like- I think it's a great way to get an inside look at what might interest you. You might call a few hospitals in your area to see if they have a similar program and take a close look at the areas that interest you- Best of luck!
Education and credentials are important, but any experience you can gain while you're in school will make you a stronger job candidate when you apply to college and get out in the workforce. Happy to answer any other questions you have.
