Hi Savannah,

This is a great question! Here are some helpful hints:

1. Trying to obtain shadowing opportunities in hospital systems and offices where you have access to seeing as many career avenues as possible from physicians, nurses, ancillary staff, and every medical field opportunity in between. Build strong relationships with those medical professionals that you come across, as these professionals can be future connections for you to gain employment in the future.

2. Building strong experiences that are on your resume, and have experiences that you can bring up in an interview scenario. Perspective employers like to see your commitment to their organization. Additionally, the employers like to have an applicant that is articulate in how they talk positively about their experiences.

3. Start applying early - even before you graduate! You never know when the right opportunity is going to knock on your door, so it is important to be open to potential job opportunities from all possible sources including LinkedIn, current employers, school, family, friends, etc.

4. When interviewing, make sure to 1) Be familiar with the facility's mission. Be sure to mention keywords and phrases during the interview so the interviewer knows that you have done your research. 2) Dress professionally, be 15 minutes early to the interview, and be sure to ask to take a tour of the facility if that is not already part of the interview process. 3) Have paper copies of your CV/Resume, Cover Letter, and Letters of Recommendation to hand to the individuals interviewing you. It shows that you want them to have a tangible copy of your accomplishments.

I hope this helps! Best of luck in all that you do!

Matthew’s Answer

It is important to prospect and narrow your focus on what you are truly looking to do. You can start by figuring out what type of position in the medical field you would like to do. Next, it is important to build a strong a resume and full that resume with different activities outside of school and work. Activities like community service, sports and other activities that will make you stand out.

Then you should try and apply to different jobs. Don't put pressure on your self. I had to apply and interview at nearly 13 different companies before I was offered and hired by the company I am at now.

Savannah:
This is a fantastic and rewarding field. Good choice!

I found this website: https://www.bls.gov/ooh/healthcare/home.htm

There are quite a few positions to consider and to choose from. As they say in sports, play to your strengths. That is, find something ( a few) that you think you might enjoy and start learning about them. Then, you should seek out those who are ahead of you to learn exactly what it takes (took) to get there.

Good luck!

Hi Savannah,

My best advice is to begin job search before graduating. Look for what makes you stand out from a crowd.

Look at everything you do that is unique and take what you learned and think of how this will help you in the professional world.

Most importantly don't but that pressure on yourself and keep applying and it will come.
