Job Title: Communications Specialist

Industry: Healthcare

Location: Nashville, TN

Salary/Benefits: $50,000, 4% 401k match, dental/vision/healthcare (employer pays about half), 4 weeks of PTO annually

Path to This Job: I loved the idea of helping people, but didn’t want to go into the clinical side of healthcare. I studied healthcare administration and completed a marketing internship during undergrad. I applied to a startup and have worked there since graduating. I started out as an office manager/admin assistant, worked on the companies budget overhaul, some CMS specific programs, and then then moved to communications/marketing.

A typical day at work:

6:30am: I wake up at 6:30 for yoga or running.

7:30am: Start work. I work remotely. My office is based on the east coast so I keep east coast hours even though I work in central time. I usually go through my inbox, reach out to my boss and check anything on social media that’s come in overnight. I manage our monthly newsletter, social media accounts, and website. I often have video calls with my team or other teams. I spend a lot of my time writing and editing others’ writing. I do some design for things like one pagers and campaigns.

12:30pm: Break for lunch.

4:30-5:00pm: I finish my day around this time but when we are busier it can be later. I used to work in an office setting and asked to go remote. I love the flexibility it has brought me.
