Default Why is it so hard to get a job in healthcare

I have BS in Management and been in the medical field since 2003. I have been applying for jobs everyday for the last two months and nothing. I plan on relocating to Marietta in three months. Im starting to worry that I won't have a job. Am I doing something wrong.

I will try some temp agencies. Try Paramount staffing. They are very good at placing you.

It's hard to find a job in Atlanta in any field, the unemployment rate still sucks. Here's a good local healthcare staffing system though: Healthcare Solutions, Healthcare Software, Physician Staffing | Jackson Healthcare

According to this article, the average job search in the US is now longer than nine (9) months:

I work in healthcare and found it a little challenging to find healthcare jobs in Atlanta. If you're in healthcare and you're nonclinical there tend to be a lot of jobs in the midwest that pay pretty good. As others stated, temp agencies are probably a good way to go.

I plan on going to Nursing or PA school once we get settled, but I didn't think it would be this hard to get a non-clinical job with a Bachelors degree. It seems like CNA jobs don't pay anything but Med Asst. jobs are good. In FL CNA's are required to take a phlebotomy course in the hosp. which I have but all the jobs want you to be Med Asst. certified which I am not.

Managment is the worst possible thing you could be doing in the healthcare industry right now. Unless you're the CEO or one of their yes men (women), you'll either be out of work or sweating the axe on a daily basis. Middle managment especially is easy to cut and is a huge money saver for corporations looking to chop the budget.....which they ALL are in this seemingly endless recession and miserable economy. Do you have any technologist/patient care experience? If so, you may want to hop back on that bus, even though it may be a step backward. At least you'll be employed.
