Alpharetta, GA (Vocus) June 11, 2009 -- Physicians who log on to www.jacksoncoker.com can view current, updated practice opportunities across the nation, and also chat in real time with recruiters who can answer questions and supply more detailed information. For busy doctors who are at least keeping their career options open, this is a tremendous time-saving benefit. In 15-20 minutes’ time, they can narrow their job search to the part of the country they would consider relocating to and the type of clinical setting that would be most appealing.
To maximize the value of this service, the firm’s IT team has created Internet functionality allowing job seekers to chat online if they also access job postings on any of 15 healthcare industry job boards that Jackson & Coker has partnered with such as www.healthcarejobboards.com and www.mdsearch.com.
“With an estimated 70% of job-hunting physicians using the Internet as an integral part of their search process, it’s no surprise that online chatting with recruiters is viewed favorably by doctors who available themselves of this communication option,” mentions Sandra Garrett, president of Jackson & Coker, a physician search firm headquartered in metro Atlanta, Ga.
“What doctors especially appreciate is convenient access to someone who can address their specific needs and interests in a highly confidential format,” Ed McEachern, Jackson & Coker’s vice president of marketing, explains.
“Another feature of our website allows job seekers to post a question or comment offline—such as during non-business hours—and then discuss their concerns in real time at a more convenient time,” he adds,
To tap the growing interest that younger physicians have in social networking, the firm is planning to enable doctors registered at Jackson & Coker’s website to link to other sites such as Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook to facilitate their own job search and communicate informally with other job seekers in their profession.
For more information concerning clinical practice options, physicians and CRNA’s can visit www.jacksoncoker.com. They can create their own job-seeker profile and be alerted right away when new opportunities in their specialty are posted, which typically occurs daily.
