What surprised you about your first post-residency job search? I was surprised—and at the same time pleased—by the opportunities that started flooding my email box the day after I uploaded my CV to PracticeLink. That began the process that eventually culminated in securing my first job.
What’s your advice for residents? Don’t wait till the 11th hour before you start your search! Some time between the later part of the penultimate year to the early part of the final year, you should begin your search. That will allow you enough time to carefully weigh all your options before committing to a job.
What were the most important factors in your job search? Visa sponsorship; a competitive compensation package; opportunities for my wife, who is an RN; and good schools for my kids were all factors.
How did you find your job? I stumbled on PracticeLink.com when I started my search for a job online. I was so fascinated by the comprehensive nature of the website that I uploaded my CV immediately.
How did PracticeLink help you in your job search? PracticeLink turned out to be the vital link to my job with Penn Highlands Healthcare in Dubois, Pennsylvania.
Any other advice? Before you start your job search, take time to define what matters most to you. That will serve as a guide and keep you focused.
