    3. How to Love your J - O - B The Career Equation ….. ……it’smore than a paycheck

    4. The Career Equation Examine Yourself: • When it comes to work, what do I naturally enjoy doing? • What am I naturally good at? • What energizes me? • What stresses me? • What motivates me? • What annoys me?

    5. The Career Equation Examine the Big Picture • Do I want to be part of a small group or big group? • Do I want a rural location, the suburbs, or the city? • What type of patients do I want to work with: wealthy, middle class,, or those in financial need? • Do I want to see high volume of patients in shorter bursts? Or work with a smaller number of patients for a longer duration? • What type of provider-patient culture do I want to be part of? • What type of peer culture do I want to be part of?

    6. The Career Equation Do something where you can make a difference • Use your natural talent and abilities • Have passion for your job and your life • Be happy at work and at home • Be a living example for others If you love what you do, you will make a difference in the world.

    7. Before you begin… • Establish Email account exclusively for job search • Check Cell phone/ Home answering machine • Facebook / Social Media • Contact preceptors / references

    8. CV review: Top mistakes • Inconsistent formatting - fonts, dates • Action verbs/ incorrect tense • Unexplained breaks or frequent moves • Listing vague objectives • “My resume” attachment • Multiple email addresses • No phone number listed

    9. Example of Clarity OBJECTIVE: Seeking a position in Family Medicine or Urgent Care EXPERIENCE: Registered Physician Assistant–Certified 2004–Present Guthrie Clinic LTD, Erwin, NY • Over five years of experience in out-patient primary care • Experience with pediatric to geriatric medicine in a family practice setting • Manage care of 20-25 patients daily • Diagnose, formulate treatment plans, and prescribe appropriate medications • ACLS certified • Certified in BLS • Worked cohesively in a department of 15 providers and additional support staff

    10. Where to look for positions • Friends/ Colleagues/ Preceptors • Websites/ Journal ads • Recruiters – in-house vs. firms • State and Local Professional Organizations • Major Health System Websites in your target area

    11. Know the Market Salaries affected by: • Supply/demand • Responsibilities • Call requirements • Geographical area NP Programs in NCPA Programs in NC Duke UNC Duke ECU UNCC ECU UNCG UNCW Methodist Western Carolina Wake Forest Winston-Salem University

    12. Know the Market 2010 MGMA Report based on 2009 data

    13. Making Contact • Always address correspondence directly to the contact person • The research you do to get the information will make you stand out. • Add a reference letter in your correspondence to employer • Follow up with a phone call

    14. Interview Tips • Look professional and do your homework • Bring CV and list of key questions • Ask right questions at the right time • Cite your strengths

    15. Follow up Appropriately • Contact within 3 - 5 days of meeting • Restate your interest in your note • Highlight areas of mutual fit/interest • Confirm next steps • Ask for business cards for contact info • Email as an acceptable alternative

    16. Remember…. First impressions are lasting Impressions If you don’t feel comfortable or are concerned, you may want to consider another position. Best way to see a practice is to “shadow”

    17. Offer Letter / Contract Make no assumptions….. • Position responsibilities • Compensation & pay periods • Frequency of evaluations, probationary period • Contract renewal process • Termination information • List of benefits

    18. Offer Letter / Contract • Formula for incentives • Malpractice insurance/Tail coverage • Credentials, privileges • Non Compete Clauses Ask these questions before accepting

    19. Remember: Always have an attorney review the contract before you sign Always obtain a fully executed contract for your records

    20. Other Issues • Notes on “Posting” CV Practicelink and HealtheCareers (AANP) • Key words, never pay to post • Notes on working with agencies • New geographic location • No internal recruiters • Ask if firm has a retained search • Ask firm not to send CV anywhere without your ok
