Healthcare is now America’s single largest employer. Do you know why? Because healthcare jobs offer employees many benefits not found in retail or manufacturing. Whether it’s the chance to make a difference or the satisfaction of a job well done, the healthcare industry is one of the highest-rated places to work today.
1) You Help People Every Day
A job in healthcare is an unparalleled opportunity to give assistance to others. Week in and week out, you will play an important role in helping people cope with challenging situations.
Even if you are not saving lives, healthcare workers enjoy a peace of mind not often found in private sector jobs.
From diagnosing an illness to brightening someone’s day, you will be making an immediate impact in the lives of others. As you develop relationships with your patients, you will also be able to witness the growth and improvement of your patients.
2) Job Satisfaction is Second to None
Healthcare jobs are generally more satisfying than sitting behind a desk all day. From primary care physicians to pediatricians, healthcare professionals have the satisfaction of making a difference at work. Regardless of what type of medical job you choose, you will leave work knowing you have impacted the lives of those you serve.
As a result, job satisfaction in the healthcare industry remains consistently high. In fact, a recent study of registered nurses revealed that 83 percent are satisfied with their career choice.
Then, it’s probably no surprise that healthcare was among the highest rated industries in US News & World Report’s 2018 list of Best Jobs. Dentist, physician assistant and nurse practitioner all ranked in the top five.
3) Every Day is a New Experience
No two days at a community health center are ever the same. The work is constantly new and different.
In any type of healthcare job, you will be challenged both physically and mentally. In this fast-paced environment, you will always be learning new skills that will help you further your career.
The Number of Healthcare Jobs Continues to Grow
The healthcare industry is one of the most sought after places to work today. Since 2017, it has been the largest source of jobs in America, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
And, it continues to grow. In fact, healthcare occupations are projected to see an increase of 18 percent through 2026.
The employment picture also looks bright for several different types of professions in the healthcare field. Half of the top 10 fastest growing jobs are now in this industry. Overall, the healthcare sector is projected to account for a third of all new employment in the next decade.
