Reflection: This job is actually interesting to me because you are the one whose in control and the pay isn’t that bad either. You really don’t work hands on with the patients which to me is a bonus. Plus the fact that it combines two fields that I’m interested in entering is amazing, i love the medical field and the business aspect of it as well.
