For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Email is always the best way to contact me. I have a visual reminder of what I need to check into and where I should respond. If you prefer a different means of communication in return, please just let me know. I'm glad to call, text, or email. Things That Impress You In A Candidate: Knowledge - Know what you want or at least what you don't want. When you can tell me why something is important to you, it shows that you've thought about your preferred position and aren't just throwing out applications to see what sticks. Professionalism - I love people who are honest and transparent, but there is a way to effectively communicate realities without slipping into an unprofessional tone. Don't tell me "I'm an example of the millennial stereotype to the t; I'm lazy and only want to work as hard as I have to to get what I want." Tell me "Work is what I do to allow me to live my life and pursue my passion and goals. It's important, but I don't want to be a slave to an employer." I will hear the same thing, but will be drawn to your ability to understand your audience. (And yes, I've had someone say the first to me.) Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: Looking for a position on a realistic timeline. Able to obtain license in the location they'd like to work. Favorable malpractice history. Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered:Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

Recruiter's Perspective

What's your favorite quote? "We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars." Oscar Wilde What do you like to do in your free time? Spend time with family and friends, read, and cook. In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? I love seeing hospitals get providers who can serve the community needs, and I love when providers get the opportunity they were hoping for. I like when everyone wins.

Man thinks about becoming self-employed

Look, I'm just going to say it. Not everybody should work for themselves. Right now, there's this huge craze about working independently, being self-employed, being your own boss. So much of this came out of the pandemic because people realized they wanted to have control over their careers and not be at the mercy of their employers' needs. But if you're looking to take control of your career, becoming self-employed is not always the best solution.

Still, there are many benefits to being self-employed. Let's take a look at those benefits before I dive into how you can take control of your career without having to quit your job and take on self-employment.

Every hiring manager looks for different skills in the job candidates they're hoping to hire. Not only are job candidates being evaluated on the hard skills they possess; they're also being evaluated on their soft skills—the skills that don't belong on a resume but can be identified during a job interview. It's these soft skills that separate the good employees from the great ones. Executives, managers, and other leaders within an organization keep this in mind when interviewing job candidates and reviewing the performance of current employees.
