Tips for a Physician in Getting the Right Job Part III: Networking and Social Media, References, and Recruiters

Harolds, Jay A. MD

Collapse Box


Abstract: It is important that physicians are appropriately aggressive in obtaining the best possible job, and not sitting back passively and expecting employers to come hunting for them. Networking is very important to learn of new job opportunities and in some cases to be introduced to prospective employers. Social media sites may be useful for networking and for researching job opportunities and the people in certain organizations. Recruiters can be helpful for many physicians in finding the right job. However, some recruiters can be bothersome and be more interested in making a commission than in obtaining the best match between the employer and employee. Having stellar references who will give an enthusiastic recommendation for the job seeker, both in writing and on the phone, is very important.
