Finding jobs can be difficult, especially if you have a very specific degree. However, one field that seems to be doing well despite the economic conditions is medicine. Whether you are a physician or a medical assistant of some sort, there are lots of jobs available; you simply have to know where to look.
When it comes to healthcare staffing, temporary employment agencies are a great choice. If you are considering using this option to secure your next position, here are some steps to help you get started.
- Research different agencies.
Whether you are seeking a company that provides medical IT staffing or just employment in general, it is of the utmost importance to make sure you are dealing with a reputable company. There are a few ways that you can do this.
One way is to check out the Better Business Bureau website. This site is very useful because it typically has information such as whether the company has had any complaints about it (from either employers using it to staff their company or employees who have used the service to get jobs) and information about how long they have been in business. Companies that have been around for several years or more are best, as well as those that have few (if any) complaints about their practices.
Another way to find out which agencies are the best is to simply ask around. Maybe your friends, family or contacts have used these kinds of businesses to find work in their fields. It doesn’t hurt to ask if they have found positions through this option and, if so, whether or not they can recommend ones they have worked with.
- Search for positions through the company website.
Once you have found a good agency to team up with, it’s time to look for jobs. The hallmark of a good staffing company is that they have a huge variety of jobs, typically located all over the United States or a certain region.
In the medical field, for instance, you should be able to choose from positions for: locums doctors, various types of surgeons, pediatric doctors, medical assistants, physician office clerical staff and so much more. It is possible to search either by your specialty or by your region.
- Prepare your resume and apply.
Once you have found (and saved or bookmarked) jobs that you may be interested in, it’s time to prepare your resume and apply. Make sure that all of your work history is updated and that your contact information is correct. Be sure that any relevant positions you may have had are added.
