Why you should work with a recruiter in 2019.
The job market for OBGYN professionals looks good, and the demand for Obstetricians and Gynecologists is expected to grow throughout the next eight years.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of Obstetricians and Gynecologists is projected to grow 18 percent by 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations.
What does this all mean for the profession? Demand for OBGYN’s is rising, and a recruiter can help you stand out from the crowd of candidates answering that call.
1) Personal Relationships
Experienced recruiters, like those found at ETS OBGYN, are in constant communication with hospitals and healthcare facilities searching for their next hire. Often, recruiters develop close relationships over a span of years with owners. Those relationships can lead to exciting opportunities for job candidates. Recruiters will also develop a relationship with you. Finding the right candidate for the right position at the right practice is a win-win for all those involved. An experienced recruiter will get to know your professional skills and personal goals to best connect you with the owners that will be a good fit for your career and their practice.
2) First to Know
As mentioned, recruiters work with the same practice owners for years, sometimes decades. This means that when an owner wants to take on a new associate, the recruiter is the first to know. Recruiters know about job opportunities long before they ever become public knowledge. That’s why owners work with a recruitment expert. Rather than casting a wide net and having to sort through hundreds of unqualified resumes, owners would rather work directly with a recruiter who already has a half dozen candidates in mind that could potentially be a perfect fit. This saves everyone involved time, money and headache in the long run.
3) Advice and Insight
When it comes to resumes and CVs, recruiters have seen it all. There’s no better resource for an honest review of your documented job readiness than a recruiter. Not only can we offer advice to enhance your professional documents, recruiters can tell you what industry trends are most important to hiring managers currently and provide insight into the skills, certifications, or experiences that you should highlight. Industries change daily and so do the skillsets that are in demand. A recruiter can help you put your best foot forward.
4) Interview Readiness
Similar to the value they bring to enhancing your resume and CV, a recruiter is invaluable when it comes to the interview process. Why? Because we know exactly what the hiring parties are searching for. It’s our job to find the candidate that best meets their criteria. When you nail an interview, your recruiter has just proved their value with an owner. When you look good, we look good.
A professional recruiter can help you stand out from the candidate crowd and land your desired position. Going blindly into a job search with no clear direction can lead to a position that is professionally unsatisfying and personally disappointing. Don’t wait until then to look back and wish you had worked with a recruiter. You know what they say, hindsight is 20/20.
