By taking some of your degree courses online, you may be able to graduate earlier, saving money on tuition, as well as entering the job market sooner. If you're currently employed, you can take online courses in your spare time to advance your present career. Candidates with prior industry experience are preferred by interviewers, but an applicant's past experience must be relevant to the particular job vacancy that the company needs to fill. Your resume must show a clear pattern of success over time, based on numeric results and personal achievements. Companies frequently publish rankings, offer various awards and incentives, and conduct monthly reviews of employee performance. Seek out a mentor with maturity and the connections to help you find the most direct path to advancement in your industry.

Personal connections that you make at work can outweigh job performance in determining who gets promoted. The main challenge in getting your degree is to choose a career that you will enjoy, and can pursue for many years. The job vacancies for website designers are still increasing, as retail firms move a greater percentage of their business online. You can locate your state government job bank to get assistance in many areas, like writing a resume, conducting a thorough job search, or researching company data to prepare for a job interview. Finally, as the healthcare industry expands its use of electronic medical records, protecting patients' personal data becomes a priority. Pursue your career interests and your earnings will increase naturally as you gain business experience. If you focus your degree choice on salary alone, there is the risk that you may suffer burnout and be forced to change careers later on.

Health Care Occupations

In the field of medical care, the following occupations are ranked in the fastest-growing job categories by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. Occupational therapists treat patients with injuries, illnesses, or disabilities through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. Occupational therapy assistants work under the direction of occupational therapists in treating patients with injuries, illnesses.

The following medical jobs provide challenging career paths, as well as competitive starting salaries with excellent advancement prospects. Continuing education will be required to keep abreast of the advancements in your chosen field.Medical records and health information technicians organize and manage health information data by ensuring its quality, accuracy, accessibility, and security in both paper and electronic systems. They use various classification systems to code and categorize patient information for reimbursement purposes, for databases and registries, and to maintain patients’ medical and treatment histories.

If you can pass the rigorous training program, nursing jobs are increasingly available, due to the aging US population, as well as the increased quality of healthcare services. Registered nurses (RN), and licensed vocational nurses (LVN), provide patient care and emotional support to patients. Diagnostic medical sonographers use ultrasound imaging equipment that directs sound waves into a patient’s body, in a procedure commonly known as a sonogram, or echocardiogram, to diagnose medical conditions.

Job Interview

OK, so the company you are interested in has finally granted you a job interview. Now what? Will you prepare well, and have answers ready for the following common interview questions, or will you waste the opportunity and arrive unprepared? Your job interviewer has one priority in mind, to eliminate as many candidates as is possible, and as quickly as possible, leaving only a handful of the best-qualified applicants for the job. To pass the elimination round, you should know your strengths and weaknesses, and something about the company's products and services, at a bare minimum. Further, as your resume is your professional representation in writing, you would do well to emulate the sample resumes provided on the website. By looking at their professional resume layouts, you can avoid many of the mistakes new graduates make in over-preparing their resume. While your experience may be thin starting out in the workforce, your resume can emphasize academic and community achievements instead.

You need to know about the company's market position and their competitors, how the corporate culture has evolved over time, and what type of employee would do well in that work environment. Don't be shy to ask questions in the interview that show your enthusiasm, and in order to draw out information. You can interview your interviewer in effect, but don't go overboard or you'll come across as pushy. An excellent question-and-answer interview program is available, on the job interview page.

Business & Medical Job Listings

Although most jobs which pay six-figure salaries require a college degree, technical fields offer high salaries based more on ability than which school you graduated from. Students will impress future bosses more with an impressive portfolio than with an advanced degree, so practice your skills as a consultant for local companies. Candidates with prior industry experience are preferred by interviewers, so you resume must show a clear pattern of success over time, based on numeric results and personal achievements.
