Having been in the healthcare recruitment space for 15+ years, this isn’t Irven’s first rodeo. His wealth of knowledge around physician recruitment, contract negotiation and needs assessments has allowed him to oversee and manage hundreds of searches not to mention placing a physician in all 48 contiguous United States. However, what differentiates Irven from other recruiters is his dedication to customer service and his innovative approach to recruiting, which is why he was drawn to Jackson Physician Search (JPS).
Since 2013, Jackson Physician Search has found a trusted partner in Doximity Talent Finder. In order to remain on the front line of innovative recruitment while having access to a platform physicians use on a daily basis, Jackson Physician Search knew that Talent Finder would be the perfect complement to their existing recruitment tools. In the 4+ years that JPS has been using Talent Finder, they have had more than 40% of their total hires influenced by activity on Doximity and more than 24% of their total hires directly attributed to activity on Doximity.*
“Highly specialized searches can be challenging because you are marketing to a small audience who both fit the job requirements and will be interested in the position. This is hard to do when using recruitment tools that contain large, broad audiences,” says Irven. “Another challenge is physicians are hard to reach, especially if their contact information is outdated.”
One of Irven’s most recent challenges was finding the right candidate for an inpatient surgical role, focused on providing surgical coverage to unassigned cases that may arise in the middle of the night. He shares, “A big problem that arises in surgery is a physician on call being interrupted in the middle of the night to perform surgery, which often throws a wrench in the next day’s surgeries for that provider. This position is an intended solution to the problem.”
Irven knew this search would require extensive targeting to reach the appropriate physician audience, and he knew Talent Finder was the place to go.
“I use Doximity for all my searches but especially for roles involving unique specialties. I know I will be able to filter and target to identify the candidates who will be most qualified and most likely to respond.” For this particular role, Irven was already in communication with the physician who ended up being hired after only sending a few messages.
To add to this success story, Irven communicated with this candidate exclusively on Doximity from initial outreach to resume exchange to hire. “Doximity is the largest medical network of physicians and has been more effective than other platforms in reaching physicians. You are one step away from connecting with them on a platform they use on a frequent basis,” says Irven.
“The ability to really filter, drill down and target candidates for unique specialty searches is what makes Talent Finder stand out from other platforms,” says Irven. “Doximity provides an effective return on investment because it allows you to get in touch and deliver results quickly to generate returned business.” We couldn’t agree more.
