Get a Job in Healthcare Without a Health-Related Degree


Volunteer or Intern

While you won’t make very much money doing it, you will get hands-on experience in the healthcare industry by volunteering your time or applying for an internship. Devoting just a few hours a week to a volunteer job can boost your resume and put you ahead of candidates who may have a health-related degree, but no experience. This extra effort also shows your dedication to the profession.

Even if you are doing tasks that you don’t believe relate to your desired career path, you will see be experiencing the ins-and-outs of life inside the healthcare field. What’s more, the place you volunteer or intern is probably more likely to hire someone they know, thereby increasing your chance of finding a job.
