Healthcare and the IT Industry

The IT industry in the healthcare field is important and requires a very specific set of skills and knowledge to become successful.  It may be hard to get a position in IT at a healthcare facility but there are numerous ways other than submitting hundreds of resumes and attending job fairs.  Then there’s the social media route but that requires you to already know a few people in the industry. One way your might not have thought is to contact healthcare IT recruiter and allowing them to do the research to help you find a an ideal job best suited for you.

 Recruiting companies can be the easiest way to get into the healthcare industry because they have access to more jobs than you and know more people in the IT field. There are more companies now than ever that use recruiting companies to hire workers.  You can miss out on a lot of great opportunities by passing up the option to join with a recruiting company. Some companies don’t even do their own recruiting and go straight to a recruiting agency for their workers so there’s a possibility you wouldn’t even know a job exists.

It might be a waste of time and money sending your resumes to different healthcare IT jobs.  You might not have all the qualifications that a company is looking for and it’s things like this that will get your resume removed from the consideration pile.

Recruiters want to find you a job as they can possibly get a finders fee from the healthcare company who is hiring you.  The fee that the recruiters receive will depend on the company as well as the position that is being offered. This means that a recruiter will work hard to find you a great job that you’re qualified for and will suit your living situation.

It makes no sense to send resumes to companies if you don’t meet their qualifications or requirements. You most likely won’t get the position out of sheer luck. There are literally hundreds of resumes being sent in for a single position so that means you need to stand out.

Understand that the recruiter is not the one who is hiring and they are responsible for only a few applicants to the job.  It’s the employer who will do the final hiring so it may take a few interviews to get the job, but at least the recruiter can get your foot in the door and sometimes that can lead to other options. You need to polish your resume and make it stand out if you want a job in healthcare IT.  A recruiter will give you the best possible chance at getting the construction jobs you want and will suit you best.
