C linical partner of Tufts Medical Center. Mahmood says taking notes throughout the interview day was the key to personalizing these notes. Otherwise, minor details about each interviewer fade quickly from memory. "Having been on the receiving/interviewing side as a fellowship interview," he says, "I knew that a personalized note can make a difference." Jackson ag rees. "Du ring a n interview, it's difficult to get the full measure of someone's personality," she says. "The courtesy and warmth demonstrated by Mahmood's special thank-you note lent depth to our final impression of him. …I think it was important in the department's decision to offer." We get wary when you say you're open to any location A ndrew Walker, CMSR , FA SPR , director of physician recruitment and contracting for CarePoint Healthcare, says recruiters get skeptical when physicians say they're interested in 10 or more states. "I just know what I will hear when I screen this physician. He'll say he is open geographically and is really focused on finding the right job," Walker says. There are other reasons physicians may give. One might say that since he doesn't have family in the country, he's able to settle wherever he finds the best job. Another might say she's spent her whole life on the East Coast and is ready to experience something new. However, we recruiters interpret these explanations in the context of our own experience. We speak to hundreds of candidates — month after month, year after year. And we've learned it's easier to attract a candidate who is interested in a specific region. "If I'm recruiting for my site in Utah, I know that the candidate likely to accept if offered and put down roots in my community is the one who has a good reason to want to live here," explains Walker. That reason does not necessarily have to be family, but there had better be a well-articulated explanation if decision-makers are going to take the candidacy seriously.
