What’s the best advice you can give someone who is thinking about pursuing a career in healthcare?

The medical field is always growing and medical staff is in demand. Before choosing a career to pursue, we recommend you

  • Volunteer in that career
  • Shadow professionals
  • Research the career online. Find forums where professionals discuss the vocation you are interested in pursuing.
  • Find something you are passionate about. You probably don’t have to worry about choosing a healthcare career that has few job opportunities because the healthcare occupations will add more jobs than any other group of occupations due to health reforms and aging populations.

We work with the entire Valley. When we meet with a candidate, we discuss the area within which they are looking to work and base our search in that area, so the cities we work with are many; it’s very much up to the candidate.

Also, unlike a lot of other staffing agencies, we are sensitive to the challenges in finding a new healthcare job while still holding the current job. Getting away from work can be hard, so we like to accommodate and are happy to discuss other arrangements to meet near the candidate.
