View Full Version : Question for those in the Health field

November 9th 2008, 11:46 PM
I am currently working in pension consulting. I've only been out of school for 3 years and have instantly noticed that there seem to be a lot of opportunities with healthcare. However it seems that a lot of the job listings ask that you have some underwriting experience or health insurance.

My question would be: If I want to switch career paths, would I be better served looking for an underwriting job first, or gaining the equivalent experience through classes?

Has anyone had any experience switching fields? It seems like a lot of knowledge would be transferable. It also looks like I would use more of what I learned in college if I worked on the health side.
