For recent CU graduates seeking employment opportunities, I would urge them to consider a career in health and medical administration As currently drafted, the 2,000 page Health Care Reform legislation creates more than 25 new agencies, departments and service centers. This represents tens of thousands of new jobs and employment possibilities for those currently seeking meaningful new careers. The Bill is actually a more powerful job creation tool than the new $50 billion stimulus package presently being considered by Congress.
Graduates would have an opportunity to train and advance in areas such as oversight, control, intervention and bureaucracy building. Advancement will be unlimited and the opportunity to become a czar, joining several dozen recent appointees, is not out of the question. Our Federal Government is already the nation’s single largest employer and the newly hired will have a chance to join this cohesive team. In addition to competitive salaries, successful applicants will enjoy lifetime job security, full medical benefits and well funded retirement plans. Fringe benefits may include international travel for observation and scrutiny of best practices in European Union government run plans.
An added attraction is that relocation and a move to the Washington DC area may not be required. Members of Congress are quietly and eagerly vying to have these new offices and facilities located in their Districts. CU graduates may have to look no further than Eldorado Springs for a job location. Think of it, pure water, open space, hiking trails, climbing and a Senator’s home right out of your office door.
Graduates, opportunity knocks.
