re: Health IT: How Not To Get Hired
I agree with what you said, but I believe it's hard to find an IT professional who is able to interact with doctors and be personable, which is required in this field. From my experience, people in the IT field may be a little more "socially clueless", as pointed out in the article. You may be the special case and not the norm, so it may seem like it's not a unique skillset to have. I couldn't agree more though that limiting hiring decisions to previous healthcare informatics experience only damages and limits the talent pool. There are plenty of IT pros that are capable of understanding the industry and adapting. In fact, I think it's what the industry needs.
