Although many employers do look for prior experience or certificates, some entry-level healthcare positions require none at all. In fact, they can be learned through on-the-job training.
Better yet, the health sector is one of the best places to get your foot in the door with one job before moving up a very diverse career ladder that offers the promise of long-term job security.
That’s especially true with allied-health support positions. The workers in these 50 or so professions support doctors and nurses in many ways, including taking X-rays, drawing blood, assisting with physical therapy and analyzing lab specimens.
