What is the best way to find an entry-level job for an individual with a bachelor's degree?
I'm about to have a bachelor's degree in health care administration. Since it's not a "licensed" profession like nursing or physical therapy, it's not as easy to find a job when I have little experience. Other than careerbuilder and monster, what are some good resources for entry-level jobs?See Answer 10 Add Answers
Your best source is your college's Career Services office. They can help you with your resume, interview etiquette, and job fairs.
Actually, your best bet to finding a job after graduation is to conduct an internship during your senior year. When I graduated from college, everyone who had successfully completed an internship had a job waiting for them. This is a wonderful way to get practical job experience, to network with professionals in the field, and to add to your resume. Also, you can find out if you really like working in this profession.
You should also speak with your academic advisor about your plans. He or she can give you suggestions on how to look for jobs in this field.
Have you attended any conferences or belong to any professional organizations for health administration? This is another great job resource.
Chances are that you will need to get your Masters degree in order to be competitive for most positions in this profession. Speak with your faculty members for suggestions on good grad schools.
Great information, but I have heard that our career services is not the best. I have completed an internship, but it did not lead to a job offer because most of the internships in my field don't, unfortunately. Also, the economy where I live is absolutely terrible. Thanks though!
