What surprised you about your first post-residency job search? The large amount of opportunities and need for physicians across most of the country.

What’s your advice for residents who are beginning their job search? Spread your net far and wide to try to find the most suitable job for you. I found the best opportunity by being open to different options in a multitude of locations.

What was the most important factor in your search for a new job? Although there are several that I find to be crucial for a good fit, I believe one of the more important factors is to find people to work with who are collegial and want you to succeed.

How did you find your job? I received a Job Messenger email from PracticeLink with a position and location that were ideal for me.

I went about my search being very open-minded and willing to ask questions and learn further about opportunities that I was considering.

How did PracticeLink help you in your job search? I received daily Job Messenger emails, and I utilized the PracticeLink Job Bank to search for jobs. As PracticeLink has large groups of people advertising many jobs, it became a central and organized location for me to find what practice opportunities were available across the country.

Any other advice? I think it is important to find a job with room for growth. Also, with the epidemic of physician burnout, I believe it is important to find a job where you can maintain a work/life balance so that you will feel most happy and fulfilled and be most successful.
