FROM THE ADVISOR:
Regulatory Association at Government Stateside Associates Healthcare
What does a typical day or week look like? I have a nice mix of routine tasks and more engaging projects. I track regulatory changes related to healthcare issues across 10 states and the federal level. I have consulting projects and client engagement that also relate to both legislative and regulatory changes on healthcare issues.
If you could go back and change one thing, what would that be? If I could do it again, I’d take some time off, and write more. I had some work published in the Harvard Business Review senior year, but got busy and didn’t push more pieces to publish. I’d take more of a chance on myself rather than take the comfortable job right away.
What are the best ways for students to learn more about your industry and/or stay abreast of trends in the health and science industry? Keep up with news and politics and you’ll be far ahead of some veterans in the industry.

Take a look at the 22 skills employers are looking for and how to learn those skills. If you possess technical expertise, securing employment should prove relatively uncomplicated, as computer programming and technical design abilities top the list of skills that employers desire, as indicated by various rankings. For those with less technical skills, this list could prove particularly useful. A few skills to spotlight include data analysis, artificial intelligence, project management, and sales. An additional method for identifying sought-after technical skills is to check out this list of technologies most frequently requested in employer job postings. Naturally, soft skills hold considerable value as well.
