For those in pursuing careers in the medical field, completing your education is the first of many large and cumbersome hurdles to clear. While the feeling of accomplishment one may feel after being awarded whichever degrees or certifications one pursued is well earned, the endeavor is far from over. Now, the primary directive is to actually find a job, which as many painfully acknowledge is perhaps the hardest part.
On average, a job seeker will send their resume out to around 4 or 5 places per go-around. While this may seem fine, we have some upsetting news. With some degree of variation, a company receives close to 200 through 250 resumes for each job opening they list. On average, a company will begin to receive resumes with 200 seconds of posting an open position listing. Given the high level of competition in the current job market, it behooves one to get their resume sent in as timely as humanly possible.
For those who lack the drive to aggressively hustle and bustle, medical job board websites like Monster seem tantilizing. At first glance, it seems too good to be true – a user posts their resume and a job recruiter seeks them out. the appeal begins to dwindle as the real stats on the matter are revealed. Our sources cite that an average of 427,000 job listings get posted every week on Monster alone. It doesn’t take a genius to realize that unless one has a spectacular, exemplary resume, that the likelihood of actually being recruited for a job lies somewhere within the boundaries of slim and none.
So what is one to do in this seemingly dire situation? It’s simple: send more copies of your resume out to more places.
