Where - Oh - Where have all the Rehab Therapists Gone??

Posted on October 28, 2008 at 1:03pm 0 Comments

This is a crazy healthcare job market right now. Not that feast or famine is a new trend, but famine is not a lot of fun. Rehab Therapy is a great market - if you can find the therapists. Crazy sign on bonuses ($20k plus 3 day 2 night vacations) make me question some companies. I mean, who gives away a vacation before you start?? Warning bells are ringing!





In this tough job market, what has been your greatest healthcare recruiting technique? I am looking to expand our… Continue

All the money wasted on newspaper advertising...

Posted on August 18, 2008 at 2:13pm 0 Comments

I recently decided to do an "old school" advertising campaign for a hard to fill position. We had a gorgeous ad and it ran all through a particular state. Results: no qualified candidates. For the cost, I could have run it on niche websites that I don't use all of the time. I learned that my gut instincts are correct and not to give into pressure to advertise where I really don't want to. Lesson learned! FYI - I recruit licensed allied healthcare professionals.

I am the “Admin” for the Recruiters On LinkedIn group, www.recruitingblogs.com/group/linkedin. You have recently joined and this is a "welcome" to the group and "here is how it works".

Over the past year I have been experimenting how best to facilitate members being able to connect with each other. Some want to connect with everyone and some are looking for a few meaningful connections.

1-2 times per week I send a group introduction message with 10-15 new members and reintroducing others.

What this means for you is simple, do you wish to be introduced to the group?

You have 4 options from which to choose:

(A) “Open Networker” with name, email address, and LinkedIn URL as you want to connect with anyone and everyone.

(B) “General Introduction” with name and LinkedIn URL as you are specific about who you want to connect with.

(C) “Lurker” no announcement will be made as you want to be on the sidelines connecting with people as you wish.

(D) “Super Open Networker” which is (A) plus having your contact information on the group page.

A caution on the “Open Networker”, you may be inundated with invitations to connect. For some this is exactly what they are hoping for and others this could be a pain.

I do ask, if you receive invitations from members you do not want to connect with that you “Archive” the message versus “I don’t know” so the sender is not penalized by LinkedIn although how you handle this is up to you.

Again your options are (A), (B), (C), (D).

Please include your LinkedIn URL and email address you prefer to receive invitations and send to paul@mnheadhunter.com

Thank you for your time.

It was a hard and very, very expensive lesson.
