There’s a lot to think about when searching for a new radiation oncology professional of fill an open staff position. Not only do you need to find the best candidate for the job, but you also have to sort through a whole bunch of candidates who aren’t the best fit for you. It’s time consuming, stressful, and even after all that work you might only find a few candidates who barely qualify. There has to be a better option, right?
Hiring a medical recruiter can be the best answer to your worries about finding qualified staff. It’ll save you time, reduce your stress level, and bring in the best candidates for your position. Plus, recruiters have the experience and contacts necessary to find someone for you quickly.
Save Time and Money
Hiring takes time. And not just a little extra time. We’re talking hours and hours spent sorting through resumes and talking with candidates when you could be focused on other tasks. In addition to the time-saving benefits, hiring a recruiter can also save money since you’re not putting so much of your own time and resources into searching for potential candidates on your own.
It Reduces Your Stress
Recruiting is stressful. Not only does it take up your valuable time, but there’s also a lot of pressure. It’s up to you to find the right candidates, vet them properly, schedule interviews, and make hiring decisions. That level of stress isn’t healthy. You owe it to your future self – and your sanity today – to avoid as much hassle as possible surrounding the hiring process.
They Have Special Tools
Recruiters have special tools to make the candidate search go more smoothly. For example, they can access recruiting boards and know how to use LinkedIn most effectively. Recruiters also have relationships in their chosen field that you might not have built. Their experience, expertise, and access give them a better chance of finding you more candidates with better qualifications.
Better Qualified Candidates
If you post a job description, you’ll only hear from people who are actively looking for a job. And that means you’re more likely to hear from someone who’s job hopping or who might be a bad fit for your position. It also means you have fewer candidates to choose from. A recruiter, on the other hand, has resumes on-file for people who might never come across your job listing on their own. Recruiters also have the contacts needed to reach out and see if someone who fits your position might be looking for a new place to work.
If you’re looking to fill a job, in most cases you have to start from scratch. That’s not the case for recruiters. They’re already tapped-in to the available talent and might already have a few candidates in mind for a position like yours. Take RadCoverage as an example.
