Career change is a process, not an event...

As a physician seeking a nonclinical job, whether you're leaving clinical practice or pursuing a second vocation in addition to your clinical practice you have two paths to follow in finding a job:

  • Search job sites and contact companies and recruiters when an opening seems right - answering ads
  • Begin networking with the people you know, the people you want/need to know and the people I know.

Answering ads. Do you know how many applicants respond to an advertisement on Monster.com? I conducted a a search for the president of a medical group and after 24 hours I pulled the ad because we had received nearly 500 resumes. Do you want to be one of 500? I don't think so. It's like throwing a dart and expecting to hit a bulls-eye every time.

Networking. It may sound painful, but I'll show you how to make it rewarding and even fun.

With a solid networking plan you'll be meeting new people and asking for their advice, asking who they might refer you to who can further evaluate your job credentials, your resume and maybe introduce you to the next person in your networking chain. Every networking contact takes you one step closer to your goal.

Setting your career transition goals may begin with one contact, one person you know, to which we may add two or three people "you'd like to know," it may involve volunteering in an organization or non-profit, it may mean attending a seminar or taking a class, or writing an article we help you publish.

It's all about meeting the right people and saying the right things - we'll offer the coaching to make it easy.
