How to Avoid Getting the Axe from Your Healthcare Job

How to Avoid Getting the Axe from Your Healthcare Job

Georgia Price / AllHealthcare

1. Go Beyond Your Job Description

You were hired as a diagnostic medical sonographer. Your job description is fairly straightforward. You take ultrasounds, maintain the equipment, and report on the results. You may be thinking, “What else can I do?” The answer is, “Lots.” Show you are committed to your career by taking a continuing education class or taking a new co-worker under your wing as his/her mentor. Show interest in a conference that’s coming up or read up on the latest sonography news.

No matter your position, there is no shortage of places where you could put in the extra effort. That’s not to say you should volunteer to work 90 hour weeks, but if you are truly interested in your job, let it be known. If it comes down to you versus the guy next to you, you extra interest can make all the difference.
