The (5) Five Things Every Physician Needs to Know About Job Searches

In my opinion                               the business of Physician Recruiters helping Physicians find Jobs is handled in a professional way and MOST of the players in the industry conduct themselves as such.

I do think it is a good idea to keep the following in mind:

1. Find an Advocate or Champion to help you with your search

This is an idea that many Physicians find a bit adverse or foreign in the job search process. Why would you NOT find an expert that you trust to help you with one of the most important decisions of your life? After all this isn’t like buying a car or a new boat – this is your CAREER – it will determine the path you walk down forever (in many ways) So – what is an advocate? – In this case it is generally a good Physician Recruiter that can help you navigate the opportunities and the processes surrounding them. In some cases it will be a seasoned Physician in a specific program – but generally a Physician Recruiter has the training and experience to help you more effectively.

Physician Recruiters come in many types – In-House, Independent, Retained, Contingent, Staff, HR – it is a good idea to find out what the Physician Recruiter you work with has, as his/her Motivation – ASK QUESTIONS – A good Physician Recruiter will WANT to tell you who they are, how they work and WHY you are of interest to THEM. If you do not “click” – Move on – there are 1000’s of Physician Recruiters; finding the right one for you may take time – TRUST your gut
