Docs are now using their iPhones and Blackberries to check new tweets at work or on their lunch breaks
Denver, CO (PRWEB) September 30, 2009
Onyx M.D., a Denver, Colorado-based physician recruiting company, announced this week they now deliver a unique implementation of the popular social media outlet Twitter.com by tweeting new physician job opportunities by specialty to their providers. Onyx M.D., founded by physician and CEO Dr. Robert Moghim, specializes in locum tenens, locum-to-perm and permanent placement, physician staffing services.
With the addition of the Twitter component to the extensive line of physician staffing services offered, physicians can now follow physician jobs in just one specialty, including Family Practice, Anesthesiology, General Surgery, Hospitalist, Orthopedic Surgery, Internal Medicine, Neurosurgery, and OB/GYN. Physicians will receive physician job opportunity tweets for just those specialties.
The world of social media and micro-blogging have evolved over time as methodologies not just for friends to stay updated on the lives of others, but also as a place for businesses to stay in touch with their customers. The web information company, Alexa, has ranked Twitter as one of the 50 most popular websites in the world. Onyx M.D. is now using this technology to reach health care providers in real-time.
These real-time tweets include information about the job type (locum tenens, locum-to-permanent, or permanent), the job location, and the time and date the tweet was sent. Time and money are lost for physicians when they sift through numerous job boards and websites with dated job postings. Finding the right job at the right time presents physicians with the opportunity to expand their skill set, enhance their income and deliver care to under-served communities while still managing their busy lifestyles.
"Docs are now using their iPhones and Blackberries to check new tweets at work or on their lunch breaks," says Recruiting Consultant Blake Snowden at Onyx M.D. "The moment new jobs are posted, docs want to be the first to jump on the new opportunities."
More and more physicians today are using this type of technology to enhance their careers. Onyx M.D. is adapting to the changing environment by utilizing Twitter to reach their physicians instantly.
