Stay or Go: What to Consider When Changing Jobs in Times of Uncertainty Changing jobs can be a tough decision for any physician. Weighing the unknowns of a new role against the certainty of the current position is hard enough. Add in loyalty to the clinic or medical system and guilt over leaving patients or students, and the decision becomes even tougher. And it doesn’t help when our old friend, inertia, raises its head. Indeed, decision theory shows that even when the current situation is uncomfortable—or downright miserable—the pull of inertia can be overwhelming. With all of these elements in play, you might expect events like a pandemic to seal the decision to not change jobs. But in truth, the event itself could compel you to explore new work, especially if your current employer has made significant changes to your role. So, stay or go? Whichever way your decision leans, you’ll want to consider how an uncertain event has impacted— and will continue to impact—you and your family, as well as the organization you’re with and the organizations you consider joining. Here are some things to think about when weighing the decision to change jobs.

Why leave your current role? If you operate a private practice or work in a clinic that has been hit hard by reduced income streams during an uncertain event, the decision to leave may not be entirely in your hands. You may be laid off or furloughed, for example, or you may find that you need to close your practice. In these cases, the question won’t be “if” but “when” you will leave your current role.

In other circumstances, the decision to leave may not be clear cut. For example, you might find that your current employer has needed to shift responsibilities on your team in a way that isn’t sustainable for you long term. You might be taking more call, for example. Or you might be assigned to duties that don’t use your neurology training, in order to fill staffing gaps elsewhere in the organization.

Of course, you might have very personal reasons influencing your decision to leave, such as family responsibilities that can’t be balanced with your current duties. Whatever your reasons for considering a change, it’s important to take the time to explore the situation. If your position is otherwise fulfilling, you would not want to give it up without verifying that the situation can’t be improved, or that you couldn’t ride it out until effects reverse course.

You’ve decided to switch jobs—now what? If you’ve changed jobs before, this won’t be new territory for you. Given how much you, your family, and your work may have changed since events like the pandemic, you can assume your goals may have also shifted. Before jumping into the job market, it’s smart to think about what you really want in this next position.

What should you prepare for in a new position? Unless they’re already unemployed, most job seekers prefer securing their new job before giving notice to their current employer. There’s a risk of leaving the frying pan for the fire, as they say. You don’t want to join a new organization only to learn that they are facing the same issues as the one you’re leaving. Questions to ask potential employers will vary, depending on your specific concerns, but they might include:

§ How has the department/clinic fared during the unpredictable environment? Are patient numbers in my area of neurology holding steady?

§ § § §

Have you made cuts to physician salaries or benefits? Have you furloughed any members of the team? Are vacation requests still being honored/funded? What requests have you made of the neurologists this year, in terms of changed duties?

§ If revenues are down, what are your projections or plans for recovery?

§ What would be the trajectory of my career should I join the department?

Whether you ask these questions directly of the chief or department chair during an interview or conduct research before committing to a meeting may depend on whether you have a reliable source for the information. Without someone close to the department who can tell you what’s happening there, it’s helpful to identify insiders to help develop your “read” of the situation with prospective employers.

Moving forward

Here are some questions to consider:

§ Do you want essentially the same work, but in a more secure environment?

§ Do you want something quite different, perhaps due to changes in your personal vision and mission due to an unforeseen event?

§ Are you seeking a new location, perhaps to be closer to extended family?

Along with clarifying your job goal, you will also need to set a timeline for the search process: When do you want to start your new job? Counting backwards three to five months from that date provides a reasonable starting point for your outreach. If you have strong leads or offers already, the timeline could be much shorter.

§ As you get ready to launch your search, don’t forget to

update your CV, as well as your job seeker profile in the AAN Neurology Career Center. Using resources like this will make the process more seamless and efficient.

6

Remember inertia? The more confusing or pressed our lives are, the more likely we are to choose not to make a change, even when one is clearly needed. If your plan calls for a job change and you’ve identified your timeline, then it’s time to chart your steps and move forward on your plan. Otherwise, you risk losing the momentum you’ve already gained by getting this far in the process. On the other hand, if you haven’t clearly decided, then that’s the issue you’ll want to tackle. To do that, you can either seek the information you need to make the decision or give yourself permission to table the question until a specific date in the future. This will let you break the “I really should…” loop that might otherwise be playing in your head. Whether you stay in your job as uncertainty plays out or leave for a position that better suits your situation, making the decision itself is bound to be good medicine. With so many other ambiguities taking up bandwidth right now, it’s good to feel clarity about your career. n

Fast, Convenient, and Efficient— the Virtual Career Fair Is a Must for Your Next Job Search Whether you are a resident or fellow seeking your first job out of training or a seasoned mid-career professional looking to make a savvy career move, time management is a job search necessity. What if you could research and meet with multiple employers in less than four hours without leaving home? Thanks to the AAN Neurology Career Center, the Virtual Career Fair offers immediate access to launch or jump-start any job search. Virtual career fairs have been around for several years but have grown in popularity since the pandemic made in-person job fairs (temporarily) obsolete. Both the process and results can be impressive. By setting aside time in advance, a candidate could potentially research up to 100 open positions offered by 40 employers. If interested in a position, the neurologist connects virtually with the employer in a Zoom break-out room for an initial interview and potentially moves the search forward. When it comes to putting the candidate in the driver’s seat, nothing else compares. The candidate chooses the time commitment based on their schedule (up to four hours), the job opportunities to pursue (Academic? Practice? Research?), the preferred technology (desktop or mobile) and interview format (phone or video).

10


Starting a tradition with in-person career fairs The tradition of gathering job seekers and employers in one room goes back decades and has barely changed in that time. Employers staff booths while candidates stroll past trying not to look too eager as they scan for the most enticing display or best tchotchkes imprinted with clinic names. While in-person career fairs can bring large numbers of job candidates and employers together, they are not always a perfect fit for everyone. Unless you reside in a major city, travel and time off are required to participate. This represents a hardship, especially for residents and fellows working long hours on a limited salary. Privacy is another concern. In-person job fairs are typically held in large, public exhibit halls. Anyone strolling through the event can view you chatting up the recruiter with a rival hospital system. It can be quite awkward for a mid-career physician who would rather not be spotted by a colleague while inquiring about open positions elsewhere. In the virtual career fair environment, no one can see what opportunities the individual candidate is pursuing.

Virtual Career Fairs—innovation driven by the pandemic The AAN Neurology Career Center Virtual Career Fair is a breakthrough solution to the problems of time, travel, and privacy that have plagued the neurology job seeker in years past. As Amy Schoch, senior manager of AAN Career Services, explains, “The Virtual Career Fair isn’t meant to replace the on-site interview experience. Instead, it lets the busy physician conduct initial interviews and explore opportunities without having to travel. It helps expedite the job search process and ultimately helps transition participants from candidate to new hire during a much shorter timeline.” Indeed, by attending a virtual career fair where 40 or more employers might be represented, the physician job seeker can “travel” to all parts of the country, exploring more options, speaking with recruiters for major hospital systems, private practices, and multi-specialty clinics all in the same day. As Schoch notes, “It’s an unprecedented way to compare different work settings or employers in real time, when the conversations are still fresh in your mind.”

Is there any downside to the virtual career fair process? According to Schoch, the only downside can be candidate reluctance. “It’s pretty common for physicians to put off their job search,” she says. “They’re busy and it can be overwhelming. But this is a way to really move forward with a limited time commitment and no expense. You know you need to do the job search. Just reserve the time on your calendar for the Virtual Career Fair and move the needle forward now.”

Getting started—a simple process The AAN Virtual Career Fairs are held four times in a calendar year, usually in conjunction with a meeting like the Annual Meeting or Fall Conference. Events are usually four hours in length, from afternoon to early evening. Candidates are encouraged to participate whenever they can—whether it is 15 minutes or the full four hours, any time commitment can easily move your job search forward. Registration is free and optional for candidates. No login is required to participate. Sign up if you want to receive reminders for the upcoming Virtual Career Fair; otherwise, block off the time on your calendar. Participant information is never shared with participating employers. New Virtual Career Fair event dates are posted on the AAN calendar, in the Neurology Career Center biweekly email, and on the Career Center Events page.

Success is easy! Plan for success on the day of the event by completing (or updating) a Career Center profile. Don’t forget to upload a copy of your current CV. If you do not have a current CV, AAN members can purchase a CV Review. Allow time for the revised CV—the review process can take up to four weeks. New to, or uncomfortable with, video interviewing? Phone interviews are an option during the event, or visit Careers.AAN.com/Careers to find helpful tips on video interviewing. and conquer camera angles, lighting, and apparel in any setting. If time permits, job seekers can preview participating event employers and available positions by completing a Job Alert. Save keywords “Virtual Career Fair” to receive notification when new employers sign up for the Virtual Career Fair or add new jobs. n

Job Search Tips for the Introverted MD Job search is a daunting task for nearly everyone. But for introverts, launching a reach-out-and-talk-about-yourself campaign is akin to torture. Lucky for the introverted MD, there are quite a few work-arounds to make the process less onerous—and maybe even fun.

Definition please: Are you an introvert? There’s been a lot written on this, so you may already know that the words “introvert” and “extrovert” aren’t references to whether you’re shy or outgoing. Nor are they determinants of your ability to communicate, to address large groups, or to talk about yourself. Rather, these terms refer to how you get your energy, and what your natural setpoint is for working and being with others. The simplest definition tells us that an extrovert feels energized by being with others while an introvert more likely feels drained. Likewise, the extrovert may find crowds, group sessions, and the opportunity to meet new people to be exciting. The introvert? Not so much. If you’d like to learn more about your own introvert/extrovert tendencies, you can start by taking an online assessment. Two that might interest you are the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (available in a number of locations online, including Cpp.com) and the

Psychological Type Indicator, available at Hrdpress.com. Each of these sites charges a fee, although you may be able to find other sites whose assessments are free. Regardless of what an assessment may say, you probably already know if you’re energized or drained by being with others, and whether you enjoy processing your ideas out loud or prefer to think things through before speaking. When it comes to job search, the real question is this: How will you survive and thrive in a process that seems almost tailor-made for extroverts? Well, you’re in luck on at least one point. The sciences—including medicine—draw a high number of people who are introverts. Which means that you won’t be the only introvert in the room when it comes time to network or interview in your field. Now the only question is what to actually say to the people you meet.

Let your written materials do some of your talking One of the best job search tips for introverts is to craft the CV, LinkedIn profile, and cover letter with care, so the words will come more easily in face-to-face encounters with an interviewer or colleague. As a bonus, this process solves some of the primary challenges of job search, such as succinctly conveying past work experiences and describing job-relevant strengths. To make best use of this strategy, start with your CV as your core document—nail this, and everything else you write for your job search will come easily. You’ll find a CV review service on the AAN Career Center website as well as several articles describing written materials for job search. In the meantime, here are two tips to get you started on building an introvert-friendly CV. First, lean away from a just-the-facts recitation of your training and work experience. While this approach will result in an adequate document, it doesn’t help the introverted candidate bridge the communication gap. A better format would be a CV where each of the work and training experiences contains at least one or two sentences describing the work setting and the specific role you played in the position. The second tip for the introvert’s CV is to present two additional categories—one at the beginning and one at the end of your document. The first new category is a Profile, comprised of three or four sentences will introduce you to the reader. Commonly, those sentences would note your current status, a synopsis of training or work experiences and something to indicate future goals. For example, “Neurology fellow with two years’ intensive experience with MS and Parkinson’s trials. Background also includes volunteer experience for Haitian medical relief and earlier training in pediatrics. Seeking roles utilizing dual skill set in research and patient care.” The new category at the end of your CV is less formal but no less important: Personal Interests. You may have heard that this is a

superfluous section but it’s important to remember that people hire people they like. And, since it’s difficult to like someone you know nothing about, the candidates who can bond with the interviewer tend to do better overall. For the introvert, it’s much easier to respond to a question prompted by the CV (“Oh, I see you like movies; what’s the last film you saw?”) than to randomly burst out with this kind of small talk.

What about networking? While crafting strong job search materials will help you lock down the phrasing for information you need to convey in job search, it won’t get you out of those in-person conversations many introverts dread. Here are some tips to help you with the networking portion of your job search.

§ Ask your mentor or others for introductions to people you want to meet.

§ Use email to introduce yourself to networking contacts before scheduling a call or meeting.

§ When attending group sessions, choose smaller meetings, particularly at conferences where you won’t know very many people.

§ Practice ice-breakers so you can feel more comfortable

initiating conversations. Even a simple “This is my first time at this conference; how about you?” will start the ball rolling.

§ Focus more on the other person than on yourself. The more

you ask someone else, the more you learn about them and the more comfortable you’ll feel. As long as you capture the other person’s email, you’ll be able to follow up to provide specifics about yourself or to request assistance, so there’s no need to feel pressured to “perform” on the spot.


And interviewing? Surprisingly, interviews can be fairly easy for introverts. Someone asks you a question, you provide an answer, and so on. Unfortunately, those straightforward sessions are often scheduled one after the other in a long day, punctuated with a lunch meeting or tour of the town—a difficult process if you tend to feel drained by being with people. These tips will help you survive such intense situations.

§ Review the schedule in advance for breaks between

conversations. If you don’t see them, email the coordinator to ask for 10-minute breathers throughout the day. If possible, fly or drive in early, to get your bearings and feel more rested. Being tired tends to exacerbate anxiety and self-doubt for candidates.

§ Read the position description closely, then dig into your own

strengths and experience to prepare examples illustrating your ability to perform key tasks. Practice telling those stories until they’re short and descriptive. You’ll find that a few good stories will cover a lot of territory in an interview.

We are looking for subspecialty training/interest in the following areas: · HEADACHE · COGNITIVE DISORDERS · MOVEMENT DISORDERS · NEUROMUSCULAR · NEUROHOSPITALIST · STROKE/VASCULAR · EPILEPSY

§ Since feeling knowledgeable and prepared tends to relieve

anxiety for candidates, research the organization and your interviewers’ backgrounds as deeply as you can. The more you know, the more you’ll be able to place your answers in a context. For example, “Yes, I do enjoy research, which is part of what draws me to this position. I was glad to see the number of NHS grants your team has been able to land, and the variety of studies you’ve launched. That fits well with the research experience you see on my CV.”

Setting the stage for future success Once you have your job, you’ll quickly find your comfort level in terms of colleague interactions, meetings you need to attend, and so on. That’s good, but also dangerous. Of course you want to be comfortable—but you also want to grow past your comfort zone. For introverts, that means leading work groups, attending professional association meetings, and maybe even overcompensating for an inward-focused nature by giving presentations or joining a Toastmasters group. When it comes time to move ahead into a new role, start your search by looking at positions that fit your work style well. Then, push the envelope a bit by looking at roles that call for a little extra. Somewhere in the middle lies your next best position, as you constantly learn new ways to contribute your skills in a world that tilts ever so slightly in favor of extroverts. n
