Communication skills:  Being able to communicate effectively is one of if not the most important traits an employee can have. Being a strong communicator not only will help you once you start your job, but it will also help you get the job as well. Being able to communicate effectively does not just mean being able to speak, your writing is another way you communicate and if you can write well, making things easy to understand along with proper spelling and grammar can go a long way.

Hard work: This one may seem obvious but it still needs to be said. Hard work and work ethic will get you very far in your future career. The way you work will show in your references, your individual work and the way you express yourself while you work. A hard working individual will not be afraid to go above and beyond the call of duty. A strong work ethic will also help you move up in your field; standing out among your peers is one of the best ways to get a raise and promotion.

Team player: Being able to work on a team is essential. In the healthcare industry, this is no exception. No matter what path you may choose you are going to need to be working with doctors, nurses, pharmacists, receptionists and so on and so on. No matter what job you may do, you’re going to have to work as a team. Being a team player is beneficial to everyone, including you. It helps build relationships

Passion: In the healthcare industry for you to be really successful you have to be passionate about what you are doing. When you are passionate there won’t be a problem getting up every day and coming into work, you are going to be dependable because you love what you do. Of course, you go to work to earn a paycheck, but when you love what you do, you become happier, your work becomes better, and you become better at your job.

Adaptable: One of the most important traits you can have is adaptability. If there’s one thing that is certain, it is that life is uncertain and you have to be ready for anything that may come your way. In the healthcare field that is no different, you have to be prepared for just about any situation. Being able to adapt to your job, workplace, co-workers and patients can be the difference between being good at your job and being great.
