You may end up back in the market again…and again. Most physicians have less experience interviewing for jobs than they do dating. But there are many simi- larities between the two. At the very least, your re- quirements and expectations—from both a job and a potential mate—likely change as you experience new things. With each job interview, you learn more about your expectations and understand what issues, if any, you're willing to compromise. With each subsequent job, you become more experienced in knowing what to look for in an employer and what employers expect from physicians.
