Make your own timeline While there are common timelines for finding, considering and accepting a new position, there are also many extenuating circumstances. The typical timeline is just that: typical, but not the rule. Liner was looking for the equivalent of a needle in a haystack in Louisiana, so his timeline was extended. You can take a different approach, or operate at a faster or slower speed. It's up to you. You can decide for yourself how much time to invest in identifying potential employers, researching programs, sending out C v s, talking to recruiters, visiting hospitals and practices in person, negotiating a contract, and preparing for your new role. Based on his job search, Liner recommends holding out for the right job. Don't rush the process, he says. "You can find the right group; you just have to allow yourself the time to find it." You'll also make a better decision if you do your own due diligence before signing any contracts. Ask lots of questions — "you can't ask too many," Liner says — to ensure you're making the best decision for you. MARCIA LAY TON TURNER is a frequent contributor to PracticeLink Magazine. Win!
