It may sound like a dumb question, but do I just call doctor's offices and ask? Go to them and give them my resume? Do I have to already have connections to obtain such a job? I have applied for pediatric doctor's office jobs... Read More
- 0Feb 21, '12 by PediMommyI've worked in Pedi offices for 9 years, hope my insight helps. Find pedi clinics where you want to work (phone book, google, etc) take your resume and ask to speak with the office manager. My last clinic (i was a clinical manager) we use to receive resumes via fax daily & they usually hit the trash can. When you present your resume in person it show initative & puts a face with the resume. Dress professionally (I've had people come to interviews in jeans).
I would suggest finding larger clinics/companies who have pediatric departments or large group practices. Children's hospital's typically have speciality clinics they associate with. Also, check out the clinic/office website sometimes they have openings but are not advertising. Look on your local medical society websites sometimes they have links to job openings.
The jobs are out there but you really really have to look. Also, your first pedi/clinic job might not give you the best $ but once you have the experience you can pretty much demand anything!
Also, know the vaccine schedule & combo vaccines. Very improtant if your working with a primary care office.
What city/state are you in?
Best of Luck!!!
