A job that not only uses your amazing skills—but also includes things you enjoy doing—often leads to the greatest satisfaction. We ask candidates to tap into what makes them happy about the work they do. Where is their passion? Sometimes it involves how much client interaction the role allows, sometimes it’s the mission and values of the organization, or perhaps it’s the opportunity to have a leadership role where you can really make a difference.
Regardless of which job have next, it will involve learning new things. Life-long learning seems to be the nature of the healthcare industry. Are you eager to learn or resistant to change? Webinars and online training can stimulate your thinking, help you brush up on your skills, and also learn new things. There are so many options available that take a minimal time commitment. Even simple online training shows a prospective employer that you are willing to learn and motivated to get the skills you need for your career.
We’re surprised at how many healthcare professionals do not have a LinkedIn profile. It’s something we encourage all the candidates we work with to do. As your career progresses along your desired path, it’s important to stay in touch with industry contacts, make new contacts, and understand the importance of networking. For example, if you’re considering shifting to a new role, wouldn’t it be great to talk with someone currently in that role? Networking and having industry connections allow you to do that.
