I am currently pursuing a Masters degree in Health Informatics. I am currently maintaining a 3.8 GPA and am scheduled to graduate December 2015. I have been told by people within the industry that I should be able to find a job while I am still in school. I have 5+ years of clinical background working in various types of patient care settings, which I've been told is a valuable asset to the field of Health Informatics. I've been applying to entry level positions all around the Chicago metro area with no luck. For those of you who have been in a similar situation; what did you do to get noticed by potential employers? Is there anything I can be doing to bolster my chances of being called for an interview?
Any and all help/advice is hugely appreciated
