Europe
BS in Magazine & Newspaper Journalism
Healthcare reporter for U.S. and international media for 15 years
Corporate communications for biotech company for past 11 years

I loved both career tracks, as a journalist I got to meet amazing people and do some fun things, like spend three days underneath the Louvre reporting on how scientists analyze great works of art, combing high-tech tools with their own skills. As a corp comms person, I still meet amazing people and get to do some fun things, like leading a seminar for journalists in Vietnam on how to write about science and medicine for the general public.

BA in Communications, but now I do Consumer Insights Consulting and have a CPG and fashion background. I was lucky to have a lot of doors open to me at previous positions, and worked hard to learn as much as I could and advance my career.

It's been awesome - I've been able to travel quite a bit (highlight was India for a product research trip) and work with major brands and retailers.

Next step is to get project management experience/certifications so I can move into product/project management for software development.

Honours in Computer Aided Design, got a job as a CAD technician in civil engineering. Now working in a doc control/project co-ordinator role still in civil engineering. I don't really enjoy CAD work and would prefer to get into management or planning in another industry.

Gave up on career in HIM (obtained RHIT) and applied for nursing school. Had been looking for positions for four years. Had my resume on Indeed.com. Start new job next week as Medical Records Coordinator for a nursing home. Exactly what I was looking for. I am so happy and blessed. No need for nursing school. Now will go for my Bachelor's in RHIA and take another certification.
I am glad you were able to get your foot in the door, that's usually the hardest part!! I am a fellow RHIT as well and currently finishing my bachelors to get the RHIA! I hope you are doing well!
