Find a Healthcare Job in 10 Steps

Find a Healthcare Job in 10 Steps

James Gonyea, Monster Contributing Writer

5. Organize a Support Group

Pull together three to six people who will help you complete job-hunting tasks. Call upon friends, relatives and colleagues. Give each individual an assignment, such as researching companies or job leads. Remember, a team can do far more work than an individual. Reward each member.

6. Target Employers

Research potential employers and identify those you think might be a good fit. Find employers who have a need for your talent, and then get the names of individuals at each company who are responsible for the positions you want.

Quiz: The Healthcare Interview Quiz

1. It's interview time! You arrive at your interview:

30 minutes early - you want to show your dedication to the job.
10 minutes early - But you were actually parked and ready to go in 20 minutes ago.
5 minutes late - You don't want to seem too eager.

7. Apply

Prepare all necessary cover letters, resumes and supporting documentation to apply for employment at each target employer. Make sure documents look professional and then mail, fax or email them to the person with the power to hire you. Clearly illustrate how you can be of value to each employer. Repeat this step until you land the job you want.

8. Interview

Research the company before the interview – know what the company is about and how you can contribute to its goals. Dress appropriately. Know what salary and benefits you want, but be willing to negotiate. Follow up each interview with a thank-you letter stressing how you can benefit each employer. Repeat this step until you land the job you want.
