With one notable exception, says Fassler: "If the employer likes the physician candidate, unlike dating, the employer does not have to wait three days to follow up for the next date." Time, in fact, may be of the es- sence during the interview pro- cess. Depending upon when the employer is looking to f ll an open- ing, there may be limited time for interviews and little time for you to counter-offer or consider dif- ferent opportunities. An employer may permit a physician candidate a small period of time to accept an offer before moving on to the next candidate. The article's last two Do's and Don'ts for Dating are: "Don't: Look at being single as a bad thing" and "Do: Become a successful single." This is where the dating game and interviewing process diverge. Unless you're prepared to hang the proverbial shingle and start your own medical practice, the in- terview period must end, and you will ultimately accept a job offer. At least, that is, until it's time to enter the scene again in the search for your next job. ● Bruce Armon, Esquire, ( is partner in Saul Ewing LLP's health law group and is managing partner of the fi rm's Philadelphia offi ce. 42 | SUMMER 2014 Working at Cayuga Medical Center ä Over 200 physicians representing many subspecialities ä A dynamic mix including private practices and employed physicians ä Affiliations with high profile medical research and clinical institutions: - Mayo Clinic Laboratories - University of Rochester Medical Center - Rochester General Hospital - Upstate Medical Center - Roswell Park Cancer Institute - Weill Cornell Medical College Live, play, and work in the Finger Lakes – Ithaca, NY Join our Medical Staff team! 101 Dates Drive Ithaca, NY 14850 EOE/Affirmative Action Employer Contact: Ginny Olsen (607) 274-4231 Living in Ithaca, New York ä "#1 Smartest City in America" as ranked by VentureBeat ä "#1 Best College Town in America" as ranked by Business Insider ä "#5 in the "Top 10 Best Cities for Millennials" as ranked by and 24/ ä "#8 in the Best Cities, States and Places in US" as ranked by Kiplinger ä Green/sustainable community ä Excellent restaurants, cultural activities and recreation ä Enjoy the natural beauty of Cayuga Lake, waterfalls, state parks, and hiking trails munication objectives. "A physician candidate should dress up, smile and see if the prospective employer is a good match," Fassler says. Nerves are to be expected—and it's OK. Em- ployers can distinguish nervous energy from anxiety and an inabil- ity to coexist. If your personality is dynamic, engaged and energetic, make sure that comes across in your interview, too. Your next steps THERE ARE MANY SIMILARITIES between dating and interviewing. If a physician is successful in ei- ther an interview or a date, there's a high chance for a follow-up in- vitation. Be prepared to demonstrate the maturity and lessons learned from a previous diff cult experience to instill conf dence in a prospective employer.
