Megan’s Answer

My suggestion to help narrow down your career is to try and get some hands-on experience. Try to do a job shadow, volunteer at a hospital, or get a part-time job, or internship. Anything you can do to explore these career areas more and see what interests you the most.

You can look at this website-https://dol.ny.gov/long-term-occupational-projections
it shows you what the projected job openings and salaries are to help you choose.

Hope this helps!

As Megan said, the best way to help you narrow down the path that you'd like to take your career is through direct hands-on experience. Stay hungry, remain curious, and never say no to a role. You'd be surpised how many overlaps there are across specialty.

The more you know, the more informed of a decision you can make in terms directions you want to go in your career.

Hope this helps, and wishing you the best of luck in your future endeavors!

What are you most passionate about in regards to healthcare?
When you think about your own health, how would you help yourself if you were sick? Or a friend, family member?
What medical subjects interest you the most?
Do you know anything about the different aspects of healthcare?
Spend sometime researching healthcare roles?

Just a few questions to get you thinking and researching what you would like to specialize in. Good Luck!!!

Allen’s Answer

Connect with others to gather information. Your areas of interest might be featured on platforms like the Student Doctor Network, nursing discussion boards, or other similar forums. LinkedIn serves as an excellent platform to find working professionals. You can interact with them and pose your queries. When approaching working professionals through correspondence an excellent strategy is to let them know you are exploring jobs and would appreciate them talking to you on the phone for 10 minutes to ask them some questions. Before you talk to them make sure you have already researched the field from all available information sources so your make the most of the time you have available. Have your questions prewritten in advance.
