Establish and build your online presence
If you're seeking a career change into the business world of medicine, make sure to establish and build your online presence. Why? Because people will search your name in Google. One of the easiest ways to establish yourself online is by using social media such as LinkedIn and Twitter. I'm not going to talk about Facebook because many people primarily use that for personal networking and not for professional purposes.
So, do you have a LinkedIn profile? You can customize your URL so that it's easy to remember. How about Twitter? Have you played around with that yet?
Of course, if you're really determined, then you can establish a blog and even a website that lists your bio. However, make sure you don't list too much personal information that you risk compromising your privacy.
