Now that you have learned about the proponents of healthcare marketing, it’s time to discuss how you plan to market yourself in the field. Use this last week as an opportunity to reflect on what you have learned in class to further promote and market your skills. Address the following:
- Conduct a personal SWOT analysis inventorying your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. How do you plan to transition your weaknesses into strengths? Threats into opportunities?
In two diferent paragraph give your personal opinion to Samantha Jordan and Marla E. Stuck
Marla E. Stuck
Strengths: Determination, continuous learner/current, experienced leader, 20+ years of Human Resources experience.
Weaknesses: When exhausted my communication is too direct can be seen as harsh, and not being a team player.
Opportunities: The additional master’s degree makes me more marketable in the health industry. Currently participating in CHRO position finalist interviews at a different company.
Threat: Loss of job or duties if I cannot play the game. A lot of HR professionals in the market.
Plans: I have already started the action plan as self-reflection showed I was not the fairest of them all. I am no longer working 16-hour days, 7 days a week, and trying to take some time for self-care and sleep. Taking better care of myself reduces my stress level. I am also using a program that reviews my communication for tone, attempting to soften the tone in my messages. I apologize when necessary if my communication sounded harsh. I am looking at opportunities to move to a new organization where human resources is a partner and are respected as a senior member of administration.
