Have you ever heard of a matchmaker for physicians? And no, I don’t mean a romantic matchmaker – I mean a professional matchmaker who helps you find a clinical role that’s a great fit! My guest today, family medicine physician Dr. Lara Hochman, runs a business that does exactly this. She’s here to discuss how to understand your priorities and assess whether a job is right for you. Dr. Hochman will also share some helpful tips on how to play detective during an interview to find out what a workplace is really like.
In this episode we’re talking about:
- How the trap of big hospital contracts sparked Dr. Hochman’s business idea
- Why identifying your priorities is an important first step in any job search
- Factors besides money to consider when exploring your job options
- The most important questions to ask on a job interview
- How to phrase your interview questions to get informative answers
- Why it’s always best to let a practice know who you are when you interview
