I graduated from Penn State in May and my friend and I are looking to relocate to Charlotte. I have a B.S in health policy and administration. Any help people could give in pointing me in the right direction would be much appreciated!

Thanks

Hi,

Charlotte is properly not the best place to be looking for a job. Hell, us Charlotte natives already have a hard time looking ourselves.

There have been a couple of threads on this forum about jobs and some in the health care industry. You might try searching the forum as I don't recall off the top of my head what they are, and I don't work in that area. (Search is on top right hand side, under the page count bar).

Check out the Carolinas Medical Centers website Carolinas HealthCare System They are a huge employer in the area...but as another has said, jobs here are limited. Good Luck.

Most jobs in H/C admin are gonna require an MA. However, if you have a strong background in stats and/or strategic planning, then you have a better chance getting in the door. Other ideas would be to consider getting licensed as a nursing home administrator, if you can't get in the door with a hospital.

Also, one of the best ways to find a job is to work with your career placement department at your University. Also, find out if the Alumni Office has folks in their computer by career/job and find out who has graduated w/ a degree in H/C Admin - and where they are working.

Join the American College of Healthcare Execs (for students). They have some of the best info available on who works where. Plus, you need to get into ACHE as part of your career development. Most hospitals are going to want anyone moving up the ladder to be a fellow in ACHE.
