from College with These 3 Tips
Take an Online Course
This is an exciting time for continuing education. There are online classes available for free from some of the nation’s most prestigious institutions including Harvard, Yale, and MIT. You don’t have to enroll in these programs to find the right online course to help advance your skills. The costs will vary wildly so determine what you want to learn and search for classes that can help. If online classes don’t excite you or if you learn better in person, look to local hospitals or organizations to see what they offer in terms of growing your knowledge.
Read Every Day
Successful professionals continue to say that one of the secrets to their accomplishments is to constantly read and learn new things. Start with magazines that will help you learn about the newest information in the healthcare industry. Another surprising tip…don’t just read books on healthcare. The broader your knowledge base the better a contributor you will be in general. Consider looking into other fields and industries and expanding your knowledge of closely related topic.
Start a Blog
Speaking of blogs, did you know that starting your own blog may be one of the best ways to continue your own education after graduation? It follows the same basic reasoning that says if you want to learn something, teach it. When you create a blog that positions you as an industry expert you feel responsible to keep your skills up to date to speak intelligently on them. Challenge yourself to create new content once a week or once a month.
