Operation ABLE’s Medical Office Training Program – a great start for jobseekers seeking a healthcare-related career path.
Now is an exciting time for motivated job seekers to consider a career in the healthcare field. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, five out of the 20 fastest-growing industries for the next decade are in the healthcare and social assistance sector, the fastest-growing major sector in the economy. With continued updates being made to healthcare policy in the U.S., the variety and volume of jobs and services will continue to grow in hospitals, hospital networks, nursing homes, home health agencies, small health clinics, and health-related nonprofits. Within those organizations, entry-level jobs in health administration include positions in human resources, finance and operations, admissions departments, and more. Most positions will require a solid foundation in computer skills, as well as good communication and interpersonal skills. Additionally, a range of flexible work arrangements is available in health administration jobs, such as part-time, full-time, alternative schedule, and remote positions.
