Finding work in a new state is difficult for any profession, and physicians are no exception. When Dr. Christopher Vu decided to relocate to a new state — where he had no professional contacts or connections — he figured he'd need some help navigating the the bumpy road ahead of him. He turned to a staffing agency to find a new emergency medicine job
Researching the Location
Dr. Vu was rightfully a little nervous about moving to a new part of the country.
“It was overwhelming because I did not know much about the city,” he says.
His recruiter helped him learn more about the area and the job opportunities that were available. Once he had a good idea of the job he was interested in, there was the matter of getting ready for the interview.
