Hello- I am set to graduate with my MBA in May and am wanting to begin and grow a career in healthcare administration/management. I have over four years’ work experience, but I have not worked in the healthcare industry. I have been trying to get a foot in the door with a facility, but have not had any luck because I do not have industry experience. I am appreciate of any helpful advice anyone has to offer. Thanks.

Yeah I understand your frustrations. I have been trying to get my foot in the door into the R&D sector for months. Are there any entry level positions you can get? I had to put my pride to the side and take a lower level position just to start.. not looking to stay in it for long. It helps to have a bio / chem / some medical background. Best of luck, am curious to see what you end up doing.

I’ve applied for entry level positions (including front desk receptionist), but am told I am overqualified. I’m wanting to get involved on the business/operations side of things. Best of luck to you as well.

Absolutely. Some smaller firms don't have as good of healthcare for example because they don't have as many employees (coverage is same but premiums are higher). Often times they'll try to make up for it elsewhere.
