As you enter the home stretch with any offer, you'll likely have high hopes for the future. You've done your homework and made informed choices. And if your initial vibes are positive, it's hard to envision everything crashing around you. But what if things don't unfold as nicely as you envision? Do you have a plan B? It's smart to anticipate your next steps if your new position doesn't live up to your expectations. "Physicians should do what I call 'fear setting,'" says Streicher. "They should ask themselves, ' o K, if I take this job and it isn't what I was told it would be — or the people aren't what they appeared to be — what would I do? What are my outs?' I think that's really a very practical step in making a decision." Your backup plan should lay out your options if you leave the position you're considering. Where would you go next? What sort of practice would you look for? If you want to remain in the same community even if you leave your job, make sure your contract has a favorable out clause. And if you're not excited about an opportunity from the get-go, perhaps you should reconsider your acceptance. "Chances are it's not going to work for whatever reason if you already have those feelings," says Parker. Even if you love your job and don't plan to look elsewhere, it's smart to have a contingency plan. Since starting his job, Antolini has sought additional leadership roles. As medical director of four nursing home facilities, he sees 80 elderly individuals each week in addition to his clinic hours. He loves his job and the location, but he wants to have options if his circumstances change. With geriatric medicine on his C v , he's confident. "If it all came crashing down tomorrow, I feel good about just presenting what I'm doing," he says. Win! Find your next practice— and enter to win a $500 gift card— at PracticeLink.com/Win.
