As documented by Jenifer La
I am an American healthcare enthusiast who has worked in the healthcare industry for more than five years. I decided to change my career path from a health expert/consultant to a project manager and, when I was given some work opportunities in project management, I found I wasn’t prepared for the role due to a lack of skills. I changed that by enrolling in the UMass Amherst Post Graduate Program in Lean Six Sigma with Simplilearn. After completing the course, I had a lot of the knowledge and skills required to be an effective project manager. Along with new responsibilities, I also gained a two percent salary hike.
Simplilearn provided an enriching learning environment. I benefitted from Simplilearn’s comprehensive program, from their instructors and practice tests to their case studies and flexible learning schedule. With my new knowledge and skills, I plan to continue working in the healthcare industry, advancing my skillset, and experimenting with new job roles.
A Varied Professional Journey
My professional journey has been dynamic: I started working in 2011 as a resident advisor, and next worked as a nutrition and diet expert. I come from a clinical background and moved into healthcare technology later. When I was first given the opportunity to work in project management, I did not have the formal education to be successful.
I looked for courses that I could complete remotely as I live in a rural town and could not drive into the city every weekend. After much research and thought, I chose Simplilearn as it provided a lot of value for the money. It was also very convenient for me, considering my transportation limitations.
I then joined Steward Healthcare Network in 2020 as a project manager, which has been a great experience for my career.
