Default Does the type of work experience matter for uni application?

Hi, I plan to apply for SIT's allied healthcare courses and I was wondering if the type of work experience I have affect my application (as I would be taking up part time jobs)?

For eg., would a clinic assistant job make my application look more outstanding as compared to a F&B service crew job? Would it even be considered as experience in the healthcare industry?

Do let me know what you guys think! Thank you

Yes, definitely!! having any experience in the healthcare industry would help in your application as you wld have a little more advantage over those because at least you have an impression of how the healthcare sector is like

Hello Sir!

Unfortunately I am going to agree with @community above me. An internship would definitely boost your application, and differentiate you from other students who do not have an internship.

Apart from that, there is also the added benefit of allowing you to find out more about the healthcare sector. Who knows, you may actually decide that healthcare is not for you, and that you would prefer working in another sector!

Cheers
