According to this recent article, if you are looking for a fresh start and are willing to relocate in order to make it happen, Boston comes in as one of the top places to find a job or new career, especially if you work in the medical field. Besides the medical center at Harvard, there are many other health care facilities to apply at and you don’t have to be a doctor to land a nice job at one of these facilities.
Of course, nurses are always in top demand, but so are administrative assistants who have experience in medical coding and billing. Most hospitals and medical centers employ thousands of employees at a time, ranging from janitors and cafeteria workers to doctors and specialists, so there is great demand in this area and you can use it to your advantage.
There are also several major cancer centers in Boston area that are major players in the race to find better treatments – and possibly a universal cure – for cancer. These cancer centers provide a place for patients to get their chemotherapy, while being taken care of by a licensed professional.
In additional to hospitals and treatment centers, there are also big name companies within the biotechnological and pharmaceutical industries, such as Genzyme and Wyeth. These are stable companies that offer good pay, great benefits, and an opportunity for job seekers of almost any educational background.
This is just the tip of the iceberg and a short rundown of the types of opportunities that you can find in this East Coast city. If you have ever thought about relocating, give a second look to Boston.
