What surprised you about your first post-residency job search? How long it took to get licensed/ credentialed! What's your advice for residents who are beginning their job search? Start early, and don't be pressured into accepting an offer right away. Look over the contract, talk to experienced physicians, and negotiate before taking the job. What were the most important factors in your job search? I was most interested in the type of facility, maximum census and the opportunities for growth. How did you find your job? I started receiving PracticeLink Magazine as a third-year resident to explore my options, and applied to my job on PracticeLink.com. PracticeLink was easy to navigate, shows when the jobs were posted, and I received many offers. I am very happy with my decision and grateful that PracticeLink exists — and I can help my colleagues who are graduating in the near future learn about it as well! Any other advice? It's not the end of the world if you don't find your dream practice right away — it may take time. Good luck! I started receiving PracticeLink Magazine as a third-year resident to explore my options, and applied to my job on PracticeLink.com.
