Benefits of Working with a Placement Firm

The benefits of working with a placement firm on your search for a new medical staff member or for your next position in California are numerous. Whether you are an employer or searching for a position, a professional placement firm can save you significant time and effort. Tracy Zweig Associates, Inc. is a registry and placement firm specializing in the placement of physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants in California only. We are available to discuss your search and offer guidance.

Medical groups and practices in California have an increasing and ongoing need for highly skilled and competent practitioners. If you are a medical group or practice and looking for new practitioners to join you, reviewing CVs and making arrangements for interviews can place significant pressure on your time. Working with a placement firm can help reduce the impact on your time. A reputable firm will pre-screen candidates prior to referring anyone to you. Following are the major benefits of working with a placement firm in California:

  • Save time, money, and effort: The search process can be cumbersome. A placement firm can help you cut down on the time you spend at the outset so that you can focus on finding the right fit for the position which is a far more efficient solution than allocating limited in-house resources to the initial search.
  • Trust the experts: Placement firms have specific industry expertise and they are skilled in finding and identifying qualified candidates. They have a well-honed sense of the greater market, demand, and recruitment practices and will work hand-in-hand with your in-house hiring committee.
  • Fill open positions in less time: When your practice is in need of someone to fill an open position immediately, a placement firm is able to assist you with potential candidates quickly. Their database of qualified professionals will allow you to reach the right people with far less effort.
  • Trial basis work for you and your candidate: It is not uncommon for practices to hire locum tenens practitioners for open permanent positions as either a trial before making an offer or as a solution for the short term while looking for a permanent candidate. Using a placement firm allows you to quickly fill a permanent opening with a locum tenens practitioner and use this valuable opportunity to determine whether the person is the right fit for your long-term or permanent position.

Candidates will derive benefits by working with a placement firm for the same reasons. Job search can be challenging and time-consuming. Placement firms keep candidates informed of new opportunities that suit their background. They can be a boon to those who need temporary employment between positions, as well as assisting with searches for long-term or permanent positions, ensuring there are no gaps in their clinical work.

Instead of spending time, money, and effort at the outset, consider working with a placement firm to find the right people at just the right time or to find a position, job, or assignment that fits your specific needs.
