These days in Australia as well as other parts of the world, no matter what career path you choose, you’ll find it challenging to get the healthcare job you’ve trained for. Whether you want to be a doctor, a nurse, or any other type of professional, you need to have the necessary tools to find success in getting a job and keeping one. One of the best resources you’ll find for tips and advice are the career blogs scattered throughout the internet. You’ll be surprised at the amount of information that you can find out there. There are so many blogs to choose from, and it might seem a little daunting to figure out which ones to focus on. Today, we’ll have a look at 5 of the top career blogs that aren’t necessarily medical but will still be a great help to you enhance your medical career.
The first step for any successful career is getting your resume ready to go. Ask any recruitment agency, and they’ll tell you that your CV is what makes the first impression on prospective employers. Whether you’re applying for a locum position or trying to find a permanent position as a medical consultant, your resume has to be just right. The working world is fast-paced, not quite so hectic as a busy emergency department, but looking for work can still be a stressful ordeal. The blog from Blue Sky Resumes gives plenty of great tips for how to draft your resume, give it some polish, and get it ready to present to your prospective employers. It’s not a medically specific blog, but it has great resume advice nonetheless and is well worth a read.
Another big part of finding the right job is being able to handle the interviews. Many people find it stressful to sit across the desk from the big boss and try to put your best foot forward despite being nervous about how you’ll sound or whether you’ll say the right thing. The Career Scoop provides excellent advice about handling stressful interviews including how to conduct yourself and how to dress to impress. Give this one a read before you meet the big boss, and your interview may just go a little better that you think!
Everyone wants to enjoy their work, and part of that is having a positive working environment. That means getting along with your bosses and co-workers as well as being able to handle your patients with care. The Emergenetics blog covers a wide array of topics surrounding the developing and maintaining of a positive work culture. Granted, it’s not specific to the medical community, but it’s a great resource. You’ll find some very helpful articles to peruse no matter what career you’re in.
Though you might not always associate a blog like this with career development, the fact is that positive thinking can make a big difference. Stress is a killer in the workplace, and that’s most definitely true for the medical profession. This blog provides creative ways to deal with stress as well as tips for motivating yourself which can help you through some tough days on the job. Give it a read and see for yourself.
Another great career blog is that of Hallie Crawford. This blog, instead of focusing on one area of career development, broadens its horizons and includes a number of categories including Career Advice, Career Transition, and Career Coaching. Regardless of what career you’re in, this blog is sure to have some helpful information that you can uncover.
None of these blogs are exclusively geared towards the medical field, but that doesn’t mean they can’t help you get your career on the right track. Expand your horizons by giving these and other blogs like them a read. You just might find great help and advice in some unlikely places!.
