What's your sales team situation? Small or large? What stage of growth is the company in? What are the sales goals? Different conditions call for different areas of focus, imo.

I'd like to help, but I'm a meager Associate 🥺.

IMO, finance and tech are great industries to cater to right now. I would, personally, avoid education as there just isn't a lot of money going into ed right now. It's a mess.

Good morning!

Still trying to figure out this whole Fishbowl thing, so here goes my first post.

I would love to get into provider credentialing, but all employers I've looked at want at least 3 years of experience. So, I'm looking at Provider Network Coordinator roles, because I'm finding some of those roles don't need AS MUCH experience. I'm a RHIT, and have been working in healthcare for nearly 10 years.

Any input on employers is appreciated!
