I am presently a member of the Early Careerist SIG group through the HLNDV chapter of ACHE. I just completed my MHA from Saint Joseph's University. I am presently employed as a medical malpractice paralegal for a firm with at least 12 years of legal and health care experience, so my goal is to re-enter the health care field with my knowledge of legal,Risk Management and Compliance experience.
I frequent ACHE's job board and find most of the positions posted are for mid to upper level managers only and most others are not tailored to early careerists like myself, nor cater to a person who is switching careers and re-entering the health care realm again.
I presently doing all of the "right things", I have partnered with a mentor through our program, network, network, network and even secured an interview via networking but as of today, nothing has come to fruition. I would love to take advantage of some of the compliance seminars and programs available through the chapter/organization but again these are tailored to individuals already committed to positions in health care.
This job search has been a daunting one and leaves me under the impression I will be left out of this growing health care field.
Can someone please advise if I am missing something, or could take advantage of another point of view or insight?
