10 | FALL 2014 Dear Physician, Sometimes job-seekers think they've got the toughest job. And it's difficult, for sure, to fnd a place worthy of your training, your experience, and perhaps even moving your family to a new community. But the challenge is on both sides of the table. If you're on the offering end of an employment contract, you're just as concerned about fnding candidates worthy of the team you've worked hard to put together. At PracticeLink, the mantra "humble, hungry and smart" has served us well when it comes to putting together great teams. We look for people humble enough to share successes, hungry enough to be self- motivated toward improvement, and smart enough to know what to do—and when to ask for help. We've found that identifying humble, hungry and smart candidates makes the negotiation process more pleasant—a conversation rather than a battle. And when those qualities are out of balance, everyone in the process feels it. "Humble, hungry and smart" has served us well, and we hope you fnd it a valuable tool to remember as you prepare for compensation discussions and contract negotiations. Projecting those qualities from the start of your job search will shine light on the whole process. When you're ready to start your job-search process, we invite you to join us at There, you'll fnd more than 17,000 job openings at more than 5,000 health care facilities and medical groups across the country. We're also offering a brand-new way for you to connect with employers face-to-face. We're bringing our Career Advancement Workshop and physician job fairs to 12 cities in 2015.
