Membership/Networking/Qualifying Education Event

This event is open to all those in Healthcare Administration interested in learning about membership with ACHE and professional networking (both members and non-members of ACHE). 

Membership/Networking/Qualified Education Event: Healthcare Executive Career Management in a Web 2.0 Era (Qualifying Education)

The growth of social networking Web sites has been rapid both in their extent of use and in their transformation from informal socializing into media integral to career management. However, healthcare executives must understand that employing social networking media offers advantages and disadvantages. The purpose of this template is to assist chapters in planning a concise panel presentation that exposes participants to how individuals, employers and executive recruiters are integrating the power of social networking in an employment market that has become unprecedentedly demanding. This program examines the current and emerging employment market for healthcare executives from the organization’s and the job seeker’s viewpoints. The session will also explore how Web 2.0 social networking strategies, tactics and tools offer career management opportunities and challenges.

Registration can be found at our Eventbrite site!

Registration Fees: None! This is a no cost event. All members are encouraged to bring a friend or two.
