Top Three Sites for Finding Healthcare Employment


The career placement center at Los Angeles ORT College has always been invested in their students’ futures. From the start of class, to after graduation when the search for employment begins, ORT is there every step of the way.  With a job placement rate of 89%, ORT College utilizes business connections in the community and networking opportunities students otherwise may not have access to. In addition to this support, ORT also teaches students the skills they need to look for and acquire a job. Each student takes a career preparation class before graduation that allows them to learn interviewing skills, resume formats, and helps them to rehearse. However, in order to get these interviews, students need to know where to look. Students of ORT’s medical program are thought to have an excellent job outlook in the future with all the changes being made to our healthcare system. To give these students an extra boost, below are three healthcare specific sites they can utilize to get the search started.
This site is great for students who know they want to work in the healthcare field but don’t know in what capacity. The homepage offers a quick and easy quiz to narrow down the most important aspects of any job, asking about things like; salary, work environment and personality.  Based off your answers, the site lines you up with thousands of jobs to look through, all meeting the specific requirements you requested. There is also an easy to use location function that lets you view only the jobs within a radius of your home.
For students wanting to learn more about what medical jobs are available, this site is informative and uncomplicated. Using the “Career Explorer” you can adjust your search to include the salary you desire in comparison to the amount of time you want to spend in school. Right away you are handed a list of possible medical professions. If you already have an idea of what you are looking for, you can simply type in the career. For example, typing “medical assistant” will give you a clear overview of the occupation, the education required, expected job outlook and a list of resources to help you on your way, no matter what stage you are at.
Used at 1,700 different facilities, HealthcareSource helps organizations to hire candidates all over the US. You don’t have to be a hospital or doctor to use the site; recent graduates looking for a job can take advantage of the Healthcare Job Board. With so many partnerships all over the country, job seekers can look in their area for everything in the medical profession; from nurse to clerical assistant. The search function also allows you to tailor the positions to what works for you. Options for things like day shift/night shift and part-time/full-time can be selected.
For anyone considering a change in their career, contacting ORT could be the first step. In addition to medical training, programs in accounting, business management, ESL and graphic design are available. Contact an advisor at ORT to learn more and get started today!
