Healthcare Executive Search Firm-Finding People For Jobs

Posted by admin on January 19, 2010

Healthcare executive search firms do not find jobs for people, we find people for jobs.

I cannot tell you how many times we get resumes from healthcare professionals looking for a healthcare executive search firm to help them find a job.  I hear many stories from candidates that are frustrated that they sent a resume to a recruiting firm and the recruiter did nothing for them.

That’s not what a healthcare recruiter does!

We help healthcare organizations find and retain the very best available talent.  That is the goal of every healthcare executive search firm.  Some search firms charge a retainer fee and some recruiters charge a commission upon the successful placement of a candidate that they have found a presented.

Healthcare executive search firms use state of the art recruitment tools that are available but that is only a beginning.  There is a strategy that encompasses the digital tools available and then ultimately, it’s about making a connection by way of the phone many times over.

Most importantly is the trust that is ultimately necessary when engaging a  healthcare executive search firm.  Trust that good quality, stable candidates can be found, pre-screened and presented for a critical job opening.

If there is a second interview or a job offered, a healthcare executive search firm is vital to ensuring the success that is needed to hire the right person.  A seasoned recruiter will know how and when to present an offer.  In addition, healthcare executive search firms know how important it is to stay in touch with a candidate that recently accepts a job.

When a person accepts a new job, “buyers remorse” can set it quickly.  Healthcare executive search recruiters know this ahead of time and are well prepared in advance to make sure that a placement “sticks.”  Re-confirming someones acceptance of a new job is a big part of what a recruiter does, even after someone actually starts a new job.

If you need to hire a professional, use a healthcare executive search firm!
