Have you been actively searching for a health information management (HIM) or clinical documentation improvement (CDI) specialist job with no luck? Unfortunately, job searching on your own can be an arduous process for many healthcare professionals for several reasons, including increased competition for jobs and lack of public job postings. If you find yourself struggling and deflated, you may find the assistance of a specialized staffing firm to be a significant asset to your job search.
First, an experienced recruiter typically has connections to many healthcare employers seeking candidates just like you. Recruiters often have the “inside scoop” as to what employers are currently hiring and what types of positions are available. These same employers rely on recruiters to fill positions at your organizations in a temporary or temp-to-hire basis, as well as for direct hire opportunities. When you work with a staffing firm, you’ll have access to your recruiter’s pipeline of candidates as positions arise that match the experience and expertise you’re seeking.
Along these lines, it’s important to remember that recruiters are skilled at assessing which types of candidates are good fits for the employers in their networks. Because recruiters have their fingers on the pulse of the job market, they are well informed of the latest industry trends pertaining to the healthcare industry. Establishing a relationship with a recruiter will allow you to gain valuable insights as to how you can best position yourself in front of potential employers. This is crucial during the application process, as your recruiter will help you present your credentials in the most effective way possible. Whether it’s by assisting you with your resume or helping you prepare for your interview, your recruiter’s feedback will give you a competitive edge as you undergo interviews.
A recruiter’s extensive knowledge and expertise in the healthcare hiring landscape can do wonders for your job search, helping you find opportunities that align specifically with your career goals. Most importantly, a recruiter can help you discover opportunities you would never be able to find on your own. The best part is a recruiter can do much more than help you find a job. Over time, you’ll find that a relationship with a recruiter can have a long-lasting positive impact on your professional development, serving as a key support system as you advance your career and seek other job prospects in the future.
