Few professions require more rigorous education and training than the practice of medicine, but many physicians complete medical school and residency with little practical training for the job-search process that awaits them. PracticeLink Magazine’s Spring 2014 issue, the Annual Job Search Issue, provides training and practicing physicians with the essential tips and valuable advice they need to launch and navigate their job searches successfully.
The cover story outlines the job-search process from 18 months before training is completed, thus lessening the stress of the process and ensuring physicians have enough time to find the right fit—or change their minds as they explore their options. And because the job-search process includes crafting a CV that makes accomplishments clear, the issue also offers one professional resume writer’s examples of CV makeovers that resulted in more impressive career snapshots.
Additionally, for physicians wondering which direction their careers will take, the Job Search Issue highlights various practice models to consider, along with glimpses into what it’s like to live and practice in four small towns and a snapshot of one general surgeon’s own job search. Company, specialty and employer indexes within the issue also help physicians find opportunities in their specialties and areas of interest.
“The Job Search Issue is designed to provide physicians with the info they need when they’re completing residency or looking for a career change,” said PracticeLink Magazine editor Laura Hammond. “It makes the process manageable and helps physicians make the right considerations along the way.”
