    Hello everyone, I was very fortunate to receive a phone interview this afternoon for a healthcare IT job. I know I have the IT experience for the position, but unfortunately, I don't have any healthcare education or healthcare work experience.

    Has anyone been in my position?

    What did you tell the prospective interviewers during the interview on what you can do to counteract it? I wanted to see if I can paraphrase it into my own words for today's interview and for any future interviews (hopefully this week).

    Any advice I can get to let them know that I can handle the healthcare environment with my regular IT skillset?

    Thanks in advance.

    Concentrate on your end user handling experience and customer facing as your technical skills would come in next. This does not just apply in the healthcare industry but in almost every other organization. Best wishes:)
