Saying Aloha to Searching for the Non-Clinical Job of your Dreams

Saying Aloha to Searching for the Non-Clinical Job of your Dreams

Non-clinical jobs in the medical industry are highly competitive, and unless you fine-tune your resume appropriately, you may be left eating the dust of those who are more up to date in job searching. As a professional with a wealth of experience and strong skill-sets, you must ensure that something as arbitrary as resume errors don’t prevent you from landing your dream job.

Make your choice

Whether you are a proud native Hawaiian, or you are from the mainland search for a fresh start in Hawaii, working in Honolulu within the non-clinical medical job sector offers several rewarding options. These Honolulu jobs range from the field of IT and Human Resources, to administrative assistants, teaching positions and anyone who contributes to the sphere of health care but who doesn't actually provide direct medical care.

It is advisable that you apply for as many positions as possible—at least the ones that would be a good match for your life’s ambitions. But make sure you don’t submit the same resume for each position. It is important that you customize your resume to match the requirements for each job posting you are applying for, even if they are all within the non-clinical arena. For example, if you apply for an IT position that requires having certain computer-based technical logic, and you also apply for a secretarial position, you will want to highlight your strengths with a side note of industry experience that caters to each specific position.


If you are a medical doctor who is ready to transition into a non-clinical role, you may want to take some time to reflect before jumping the gun. In an article published by The American Medical Association, the author warns that physicians need to make sure they can tell the difference between needing to take a break from clinical work, or a permanent one. The article advises doctors to seek out career coaches and former physicians, who are sometimes one in the same. They sit down with the client and advice careful planning before making that career leap. Make sure that your career change will still help you accomplish your dreams and goals. You never want to abandon your dreams. Also, make sure that your salary cut will not compromise the lifestyle that you require. The American Medical Association asks physicians who are considering a career change to contemplate the answers to the following questions:

·      What would you do if money were no object?
·      What would you do if you knew your success was guaranteed?
·      What did you want to be when you were a child?
·      What did you want to be before you became a doctor?
·      Do you have a dream job?

By addressing these questions with a career coach, you will be safeguarding your best interest, and ensuring overall happiness.

Back to the resume

Most experts will advice job seekers to do their best to have a perfect resume. And that is to keep their resume to a two-page minimum. Also, avoid making statements about your skill-set. Be sure that when you list your skills, you back them with industry experience to testify to the level of expertise you are claiming. Regardless as to whether you are a recent college grad, or a physician with 20 year’s experience of clinical practice, this rule applies to everyone. Good luck in finding the right career path to your journey.
