The healthcare industry is very competitive. Medical professionals get burned out in their current positions and want to move from place to place. Not to mention the medical sector can be a very lucrative industry to enter into.
While health care providers such as doctors and nurses, through their residencies, may have a foot in the door to a hospital or other medical facility, it can be more of a challenge for those entering into the medical billing and coding facet of healthcare. This is where an employment agency for healthcare can be a tremendous tool.
Networking is essential in just about every career, at least to some degree. It may difficult to network within the billing and coding part of this industry, simply because many coders work independently and are very protective of their leads. Working through a medical staffing agency can help with this. Recruiters and staffing specialists are in constant contact with department and facility managers. Employment agencies are relentlessly networking for you because it’s beneficial for them to place you and it’s equally advantageous for the facility managers to fill the employment gap.
Through this networking staffing agencies have a greater availability of workers than most employers. As an example, an employer may only need seasonal workers; they would need to advertise job openings, interview candidates and process new hire documentation for a relatively short period of employment. Clearly this is not beneficial for them. However, medical staffing agencies, will have relationships with workers they’ve already identified as dependable, reliable and conscientious and who can fill a vacancy in a matter of days, if not hours. Medical staffing services maintain these broad networks with both their workers and the employers because it is valuable for everyone involved.
You might be a coder that has left a less than desirable situation and would prefer not to find yourself in that position again. A medical staffing service provides a distinct advantage for you. You can use a staffing agency to fill a temporary-to-permanent job opportunity. You will benefit from this feature, as it allows you to “try before you buy,” which means you can see the employer in action for several months before taking a permanent job offer only to find it was not a good fit for you.
There are many advantages and opportunities when you work with a healthcare employment agency if you are a medical billing and coder. Whether you’re looking for a change of scenery or needing network connections for a job, a medical employment agency help you in your chosen career path. This might not be your situation; perhaps a job in the same location for years to come is what will make you happy, again a staffing agency is the solution. Working with a agency will allow you to make a change in your life while still getting paid to do what you love! You can let the agency job search for you so you don’t spend time away from your current job or your life trying to find the perfect fit.
