There is no better method than a career fair for getting quality ‘face-time’ with top healthcare employers who are hiring physicians, especially now that so many more physicians are going into employed settings, vs. private practice, in today’s market.
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) April 30, 2017
PracticeMatch, a company that provides healthcare recruiting resources and data to employers nationwide, announces a sharp increase in projected attendance for this year’s physician career fairs, with this year’s RSVPs and registrations so far tracking a fifty percent increase over 2016.
The complete schedule for the 2017 calendar year of national physician career fairs is located on the PracticeMatch website.
“Physicians are showing an increased interest in attending our career fairs to help advance their medical careers,” states Mike York, Chief Operations Officer of PracticeMatch. “This is likely a reflection of the success of prior events, as well as the improvements we have implemented in marketing and hosting the fairs to better serve physicians and healthcare employers. We aim to provide a high-quality, enjoyable experience, with valuable opportunities for doctors and prospective employers to network and make key connections, which will eventually result in mutually beneficial professional relationships and employment,” York adds.
Although the career fair attendance has grown substantially, there are still exhibitor openings available at upcoming fairs, including the ones in the near future:
- May 9 - Omaha, NE
- May 11 - Nashville, TN,
- July 26 - Kansas City, MO
Career fairs provide an opportunity for experienced physicians and new physicians, including residents and fellows, to meet with healthcare hiring managers, recruiters, and hospital administrators in person, to learn more about practice opportunities first-hand. Eleven PracticeMatch physician career fairs have already been successfully completed, with about 2/3 of the scheduled healthcare recruiting events occurring throughout the remaining months of 2017.
“The physician career fairs we’ve hosted so far this year have been very successful, and the feedback from attendees has been great also, including that of physicians and employers,” states Mike York. “There is no better method than a career fair for getting quality ‘face-time’ with top healthcare employers who are hiring physicians, especially now that so many more physicians are going into employed settings, vs. private practice, in today’s market.”
