Quiz: How to Work Effectively With Recruiters

March 01, 2018

It's usually wise to continue searching for a job on your own, even if you use a search firm. This will improve your chances of success. In general, search firms only fill 20% of available jobs, and that number is even lower among medical practices, which are less likely to use recruiters.

Recruiters are one of the most widely used methods for finding physician jobs, but they are not always considered the most effective. Job seekers typically say that the most effective way to find a job is through word of mouth, although others find that option limited.

Looking for a job on your own works best when you have a location in mind. If you are considering large organizations, contact their in-house recruiters to get more details about the opening. They can also help you assess the community.
