Experienced people in the medical and health care sectors will tell you two very important things about finding a job in their fields:
1. The job competition in the health sector is tough and continuous. “Churnover” in the sector creates a very demanding environment in which to find a new job.
2. The services offered to job seekers online vary from comatose to good.
Job seeking can be very hard work, and pretty thankless, when you’re looking for an extended period of time and not getting anywhere. The main issue is that the supports for job seekers aren’t generally very efficient or particularly helpful.
For most people, support services are the crucial link to job hunting success. Just about everybody could use a hand with their interview skills, travel to jobs in other cities, and similar issues. A job search may find a job you can apply for, but not do a lot to actually get you the job.
There’s been a new initiative in the health sector job market recently. A company called Intelligent Placement Solutions operates a combined job search/ support service online called Jobs4Med.com. This is a major staffing agency specializing in the health care sector, covering all types of jobs from medical family practice and academic medicine jobs to specialist areas like gastroenterology jobs and health care admin jobs.
They do a lot more, too. They offer a full suite of support services, including things like interview practice, CV and resume writing, travel, license ordering, and a lot more. These very useful services are backed up in turn by expert advisory services. They even do salary negotiations and finding jobs for partners if you move to another town.
If that sounds well above the usual standard of services to you, it is. This is a particularly useful service model in the highly competitive and forever-busy health care sector, delivering effective support where it’s most needed.
