What’s the big secret to leadership jobs? “ulas.” I recently read an article by a business consultant, Les Brown, that got me thinking about leadership in the workplace. He stated: “The best leadership jobs… are the ones that get done. Those who possess years of practical experience at their profession’s level can usually find good remote leadership positions in most any industry.”
There is much wisdom in this advice. Leaders are rarely hired just because they have a title or a lot of experience. Typically, it takes some combination of those things. However, it is also important to have a good median salary and a good median annual salary. Let me explain.
The top jobs in health care are those careers that allow job performance on the floor to be judged by other physicians or clinical laboratory technicians. Medical laboratory scientists are not typically promoted to leadership positions, even though those careers often offer stellar salaries and excellent benefits. Why? Because medical laboratory scientists spend most of their time behind the scenes performing research, whereas leadership positions involve public relations, marketing, and advertising.
That doesn’t mean those jobs don’t exist. In fact, I believe there are dozens of great healthcare leadership jobs available right now in all different sectors of the healthcare industry. In fact, you may be surprised to learn that the median salary for a medical laboratory scientist is over seven thousand dollars. If you don’t believe me, just ask someone who just finished a four-year bachelor’s degree in biochemistry or biology.
There are also very good opportunities for top-paying jobs outside of the laboratory, such as positions as laboratory management consultants, medical biller, pharmacy manager, and business analyst. Even though the average salary for these jobs is higher than the seven thousand dollar mark, they too offer stellar benefits, exciting schedules, the chance to make a difference in the world around them, and competitive pay. But what about jobs that fall just below the seven-thousand-dollar mark? I’ve found that there are some great healthcare leadership jobs that are just out there waiting for you to find them!
Nonprofit leadership positions are growing in popularity across the country. As nonprofit organizations continue to age, their staffs are aging as well. This is especially true in today’s ever-changing world. Many nonprofit executives are turning to non Profit-based leadership as a way to make a significant impact in areas not directly related to their core mission. The average salary for a nonprofit executive director is around five hundred dollars, with healthcare-related leadership jobs bringing up the average salary a little bit more.
The average salary for non-profit executive-level jobs, on the other hand, is closer to two thousand dollars. However, in addition to the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others through your leadership, healthcare administrators get the chance to make quite a bit more money. Remote leadership positions usually start at around two hundred dollars per hour, but some positions start at six hundred an hour. For those with the best credentials, these positions can easily begin at over seven thousand per hour!
The highest paying healthcare positions are typically entry-level. But if you’re willing to put in the work (or learn how to work from home on the Internet) you can turn those entry-level jobs into something much larger than the typical seven or eight-figure salaries. Medical administrative jobs are one of the best careers when it comes to making money on the Internet. As long as you can show potential employers that you are a qualified leader with a track record of success, you will likely find high-paying positions with telecommuting and remote working perks. These jobs have one of the highest median salary ranges of any career path on the Internet.
