Excerpt from HL7 Starter Kit:
I include my salary information to encourage you to stay on the HL7 side of Healthcare IT. I know there are plenty of people out there who earn the same and even more! My recommendation is to stay focused and keep on top of the market trends, and it will be worth it. If you have the passion and drive to succeed, there’s a place for you in any organization you desire.
How do you get more experience? You must move around from employer to employer. The fastest way is to become a consultant and accept 6-12 month contracts. If that doesn’t appeal to you, then find permanent jobs but don’t stay! Once you feel you have mastered your job – move on to a new one.
Do you need to learn all the interface engines out there? No! Once you understand the way one works – you can easily jump into another one – especially if have experience with scripting languages.
