Choosing which positions to apply for

Most hiring managers are looking for a provider with relevant experience, or at least a clinical rotation, within the posted specialty.

Apply for positions based on what you're interested in and in which you have completed a rotation. For example, if you are interested in working within an acute setting, it would be important to have a clinical rotation in a hospital or acute care environment. If you are interested in working in an outpatient family medicine clinic, it would be important to have completed a family or internal medicine rotation.

When thinking about positions to apply for:

  • Consider whether you are looking for an inpatient or outpatient position. Do you want a hybrid position that works both inpatient and outpatient?
  • Are you passionate about a certain specialty because of personal experiences? Do you want to work in a certain specialty, or are you wanting a broader experience or patient panel? Hiring leaders are interested in seeing that you are passionate about the specialty/focus you are applying for.
    • We suggest focusing your application on positions and specialties in which you are interested in working.
    • We do not recommend applying for positions across multiple specialties or focus areas.

Credentialing

Credentialing for a new graduate usually takes 85 to 120 days.

  • We do not start the credentialing process until you have passed your exam and applied for your North Carolina license.

Résumés/CVs and cover letters

We look to your résumé to tell us the dates of your education and any relevant employment, as well as any clinical rotations you have completed while enrolled in school. If you are enrolled currently, please include the date you expect to complete your program.

A cover letter is a great way to highlight your experience and interests and show the hiring leader why you are a good fit for the position.

You can only upload one résumé and cover letter per candidate profile.
