new grad first job in urgent care office...good place to start my career???

  1. 0
    I am a new grad and having trouble finding a job. I have the possibility of taking a job in an urgent care doctor's office. One of those "doc-in-the-box" type places. I need the income and want the experience, but will it make it harder for me to get into the hospital? My ultimate goal is L&D, but I am willing to put my time in to get there. Is it ok to not wait it out for a hospital job as my first job? I do not want to get stuck working only in doctors offices my entire career.

    In this market, TAKE IT!

    You WILL gain valuable experience. And hospitals want some kind of experience! You can always continue to apply and interview, but will have a safety net while gaining experience. A bird in the hand....
