How can I get a hospital admissions representative position with no former health experience?
Question by Rose D: How can I get a hospital admissions representative position with no former health experience?
I want a job as a hospital admissions representative but I have no former experience.
I am a senior in college and will be graduating in May. My major is speech pathology and I plan on working in a hospital after med school next fall.
I’m very smart and dependable. How can I get my foot in the door working in a hospital if every position requires previous experience?
I live in Atlanta, GA

You have two options:
1) Do unpaid work in the medical field: you could do an internship, or you could even just walk in and say you want to volunteer.
2) Think about your prior experience in other fields– maybe they’re indirectly related to the job you want? Prior admissions experience, experience in something medical-like such as social work might work.
