Typically, on a resume, employers are looking for past successes. Indicators of this are often strong GPA, sound experience, and evidence of leadership. Even though your previous experience is in the health industry, be sure to highlight your experience on the business side. For instance, if you were a technician, you may have also created and submitted daily reports, collected and managed patient records, etc. Additionally, take the initiative to advance your skills in basic business tools such as Microsoft Excel and Powerpoint. While pursuing your MBA, participate in clubs that indicate a passion for and focus in an area of business such as marketing, general management, or finance. Finally, use social media to further tell your commitment to a career change by joining LinkedIn clubs which introduce you to new ideas as well as to individuals already in the field..
