I have been working in the defense and semiconductor industries as an engineer. I am getting my MBA and I am thinking about working in medical industry (business side), maybe in the hospitals (they need business people, right)? I have 1+ year before getting my degree.
Looking online for the jobs I would like, they all required experience in the field. It took me years to switch from defense to semiconductor, and that’s because I know someone!
You think by volunteering (I am good at interacting with people and solving problems) at a hospital in the next year or 2, someone might look at that as ‘having experience in the field’, or at least that hospital can write me a recommendation?
