The job search is rarely easy, and there are times you might wish you had someone to help you unearth opportunities and make connections. A professional physician recruiter can help. There is never a fee for candidates utilizing a physician recruiter to find a practice opportunity, and clients pay a fee only if the contingency recruiter is successful placing a candidate.  Utilizing a physician recruiter provides many advantages to candidates and clients.Utilizing Physician Recruiter

Recruiters specializing in physician job placement may contact you to get your information or to tell you about an available position, or you might decide to reach out to one on your own initiative. The key to getting the most out of your interactions with physician recruiters is to know exactly what you want to gain by working with them rather than depending on them to take care of every step for you.

It’s not uncommon for candidates to receive phone calls and emails from recruiters beginning as early as your final year of residency or fellowship. Most of the time, they’re looking to build their list of contacts so they will be able to quickly connect with as many candidates as possible when they are hired to find a physician for a client. If you share your information with a recruiter, you will periodically receive phone calls and/or emails with job listings, some of which may suit you and some that won’t.

Other times, recruiters will get in touch with you to let you know about a job they have been hired to fill. This can happen even if you’ve never connected before. In most cases, recruiters are pretty straightforward about why they’re contacting you. You can always decide to respond or decline, depending on your interest and needs at a given time. Keep in mind that even when you aren’t looking for a job, it may be beneficial to ask about the details so you can learn more about what’s out there in your specialty.

There are a number of advantages to working with a recruiter, and you can get the most out of the working relationship by planning ahead.

One benefit is that you may be able to receive honest feedback about your candidacy for the type of position you’re seeking when they look at your resume. Ask candid questions about how you stack up in comparison to other candidates.

You might also gain some insight into job availability and income expectations. You can talk to a recruiter to gauge the dynamics and competitiveness in the region where you’re looking to find a job.

When you talk with a recruiter, you may find the job you are looking for, but you aren’t obligated to follow through with jobs that they present to you. It’s perfectly fine to find another position on your own or through another method.

Recruiters may provide you with objective data that your peers might overlook or might not have access to,
