Working with a physician recruiter can be time-consuming, but it definitely has its pros. Here are 3 reasons why you should work with a physician recruiter:
1. Connections & Networking Abilities: Physician recruiters are known for their “connections” including list of extensive networks in the industry. If you’re a candidate, expect to be “exposed” when it comes to job opportunities. Because of this, it’s important that candidates have an open and honest dialogue with their physician recruiter about the types of jobs and networks they are interested in. This way if your physician recruiter doesn’t have the “right” job for you, they can leverage their networking abilities to find you the right match. However, its key to remember that only because you’re working with a physician recruiter it doesn’t mean you’ll easily land a job. In fact, candidates must put in the work, as part of the hiring process also requires work to be done directly by the physician.
2. Job “Insights”: One of the key advantages of working with a physician recruiter is that they can provide you with job insights. Insights can range from hiring timelines, number of candidates applied, contract offers, interview process (phone and in-person), compensation, and benefits. Depending on where you are in your career, they can also help negotiate (if needed). So, don’t be afraid to ask questions!
3. Jobseekers Don’t Pay: Unlike other recruiting agencies, physician recruiters do not receive a % of your salary, bonuses or benefits. So how do they get paid? Physician recruiters receive a flat fee that is paid by the client (recruiting company). Therefore, since you (the candidate) aren’t paying for the physician recruiters services, make sure to work with a physician recruiter that has your best interest in mind.
