I want a career in HealthCare Administration in Dallas, Texas. How I can look for such jobs?
I have around 5 years of retail banking experience as senior financial manager with a major North American bank. During this period I serviced both personal and corporate clients. In last two years I specialized in providing financial advise to HealthCare organizations ranging from Community Health Centers, Nursing Homes to major national Hospitals. I also worked with the administrative, finance and budget department of these healthcare organizations. Now, this year my wife and I are moving to Dallas, Texas. I want to leverage my banking experience in finding a Healthcare Administrative career. I was wondering if anyone can help me in following aspects:
1. Name/websites of prominent recruiter(s)/agencies in the Dallas - Fort Worth area who can help me to get a healthcare placement?
2. website addresses/ online forums for non-healthcare professionals who are looking for healthcare administrative career?
3. Any advice on how I can utilize next 6 months before relocation to better prepare myself.
Thanks a million.

I suppose the T-shirts say it great. Hold Austin weird and maintain Dallas Pretentious. Austin is both the state capital and a school town. It has a nice mixture of the 2, no longer too institution-y, not too high strung. Dallas is the pretty sister (Houston is the unsightly sister with more persona). Has a excellent nightlife, good, excessive art scene. Both one is excellent for younger couples/families, each are as dependable as contemporary cities can be. If you already have the job in Austin, take it, but keep the options open. Each large city in Texas is vastly specified from the entire others, to the point that there's no "Texas lifestyle."
