How to Keep Your Job Search Under the Radar Well, this is awkward. You’ve decided to look for a new job, but you don’t want your current employer to know you’re searching. What can you do? First of all, let go of any guilt. No matter how well you’ve been treated by your boss (or how poorly, for that matter), sometimes you just need to move on. You might be burned out in your job, or you could be hoping to practice more in your specialty, or perhaps you’re seeking a greater challenge than your employer can offer you. Whatever your reason(s) for leaving, it’s a normal part of being an employee. As for your patients, students, or colleagues—of course you’re torn about leaving them. But if you’ve made your decision, then the success of your transition might depend on putting your feelings aside.

Why such a secret? Consideration for others is one reason physicians choose to keep a job search confidential, at least in the early stages. It can be very disruptive to a department or practice to know someone is leaving but not know when. Likewise, although patients appreciate ample notice for switching doctors, a months-long goodbye can prove unsettling.

6

Speaking of patients, there’s also a business reason for not broadcasting your departure too far in advance. People seeking a new physician might be less likely to choose you if they know you will be leaving soon. While it might seem only fair for prospective patients to have that information, what if you don’t follow through with your plan or can’t find a suitable new job? If you end up staying, you don’t want to be needlessly scrambling to refill your patient schedule. One more reason to keep a low profile while you’re job searching: If your boss knew you had been looking but couldn’t find what you wanted, you could be eating a major piece of humble pie. You could also lose leverage when negotiating changes to your current job. It’s hard for employers to invest resources in employees they consider a flight risk.

Preparing to conduct a low-profile search If your plan is to stay below the radar with your search, you’re living in the right time. Today’s technology makes it more possible than ever to have private conversations and conduct research without being obvious about it. To take advantage of these opportunities, you’ll need to make some initial decisions about the geographic


location of your new work and about the work itself. Basically, what kind of job do you want, and where? Being able to answer these questions lets you focus your outreach and conversations, which shortens your search and reduces the amount of “side chatter” that could lead back to your current employer. Once you know what and where your next work will be, it’s time to dig out your employment contract, complete with its non-compete clause. If you have no non-compete, then no worries. But assuming that you do, you’ll need to know the parameters: How long are you restricted after leaving your job and what territory is covered by the restriction? If you discover that your contract conflicts with your goals, don’t panic. Depending on the situation, there may be a way to negotiate a favorable compromise with your employer. This would be a good time to talk with an attorney who specializes in medical practices to learn your options. Finally, you’ll need an updated CV before you’re ready to launch your job search. If it’s been awhile since you last looked for a position, it’s smart to go the extra mile in preparing your CV. Rather than simply adding your current role to the top of the employment section, consider having your document remade professionally. Or as a middle step, submit it to the low-cost AAN review service at careers@aan.com for recommendations on ways to freshen and modernize your document for today’s leaders.

Ready, set, shhhh Job goal, geographic goal, non-compete strategy, refreshed CV— check, check, check, check. It’s all systems go to launch your job search, but quietly. Here are three excellent resources to help you conduct an efficient but confidential search process. 1. The AAN’s Neurology Career Center. This is your go-to place for hundreds of current job postings in neurology, as well as helpful articles and tools to guide your job search process. Start by completing your confidential candidate profile and upload your CV to complete your file. Now when you see an interesting posting, you’ll be able to respond and apply in minutes. 2 Online job fairs. The Neurology Career Center hosts a virtual job fair online every three months, making it easy for you to connect directly with a dozen or more employers in a single session. If you haven’t tried this before, you’ll love the efficiency of using just a few hours to accomplish what would otherwise take days or weeks in terms of one-on-one meetings with currentlyhiring employers. Best yet, these discussions are completely private, unlike in-person events where others can see you visiting employer booths.

by bringing you opportunities on the edge of what you requested. You can always say no, so this isn’t really a problem; indeed, many doctors have found themselves delighted by taking jobs they wouldn’t have thought of pursuing. The second thing to know is that a recruiter’s candidate database can have a surprising half-life. That is, unless you explicitly request otherwise, recruiters have been known to shop their candidate CVs to employers even after a new position has been secured. Forewarned is forearmed: Ask the recruiter about their practices and make your wishes clear.

Tricky situations For the most part, it’s very doable to conduct a job search under the radar. But there are some situations that take a bit of finesse or strategy. For example, if the position you want is internal—with the same employer, but in a different department—you’ll need to be quite strategic to keep things under wraps while you explore your options. In this case, it makes sense to shorten the “secret” stage of your job search as much as possible, to lessen the chance your boss will hear about it from someone other than you. Likewise, using your normal network and references can also make it harder to keep your search confidential. And yet, you don’t want to forgo the important boost these colleagues and mentors could provide. One strategy to consider is to bring just a few people into your confidence, at least at the beginning. Once you’re ready to go public with your new job, first make individual calls or send personal emails to others in your network so they are nearly “first to know.” This will help preserve these important relationships without compromising your initial need for privacy. Speaking of the initial need for privacy—don’t forget to state somewhere in your cover letters when you respond to postings, “Thank you for keeping this confidential, as I am in the early stages of my exploration.” This can be done effectively as a P.S. after your signature line, or as part of the final paragraph of your letter. One other tricky situation you’ll have to navigate is the interview question, “Why are you leaving your current job?” If you can’t say something simple, such as “We’re relocating to be near my spouse’s family,” you’ll need to strategize an answer in advance. For example, it probably wouldn’t land well to say, “I’m burned out” or even, “My work isn’t challenging me.” Honest as those answers may be, they throw up red flags for a new boss. A better strategy is to build your answer around excitement for the new job, not dissatisfaction in the old one. Perhaps, “I’ve been wanting to practice more in my specialty area and that’s something I feel like I can do this position. I’m really excited about…”

Now you know the secret Now that you know the secret for “under the radar” job searches, that’s one less barrier to hold you back. If you decide you’re ready for new work, there’s no time like the present to start. n

3. Recruiters. When you feel pressed for time or need help making headway, recruiters can bring a welcome burst of activity to your job search. Once you tell a recruiter your work and geographic goals, he or she can search databases for opportunities that fit, then make the connection between you and the employer. You may also benefit from the recruiter’s counsel in terms of your goals and expectations. Two things you should know, though—first, it’s common for recruiters to push the envelope a bit

The Benefits of Practicing Neurology in a Rural Setting When you think of practicing medicine in a rural setting, what comes to mind? For neurologists who have lived and trained in densely populated urban areas for most of their lives, the mental image can be full of misconceptions. But you may be surprised to learn that salaries for rural neurologists frequently exceed those of their colleagues in the city. Another surprise might be the flexibility that rural neurologists often experience, in both the subspecialties they can pursue and the conditions of their work. Even the stereotypes about the towns themselves may turn out to be false, with many “country” locations offering amenities that rival those of the big city—albeit in lesser quantities. With those stereotypes out of the picture, read on to discover the realities of practicing neurology in a rural setting.

Practicing one’s specialty immediately For Saurabh G. Shukla, MD, there was never a question of whether he would practice in a rural or underserved area, since that was a condition for maintaining his visa. Even so, he admits the prospect was somewhat daunting for both him and his wife. Having completed medical school in India before taking post-graduate roles in Boston, New York City, and Miami, Shukla was used to highly populated cities. But once he understood that his first employer would likely be situated in an underserved area, he threw himself into a strategic and methodical job search. Shukla’s process took 18 months to complete, partly because of the administrative process with his visa paperwork and partly because he was being extra selective. In the end, he accepted an offer from the University of

10

Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, joining the staff in January 2019 as assistant professor of neurology. “One thing that really drove me here was the work factor,” Shukla says of his decision. “Here I’m able to practice neuromuscular neurology, which is really difficult for a new doctor in large centers. Because in bigger centers, those positions are saturated, and people stay for decades.” Indeed, not only is Shukla able to devote nearly full time to his specialty in neuromuscular neurology, but as it turns out, he’s the only academic neuromuscular specialist in the entire state. This provides a unique opportunity for someone so new to the university, as patients come from the states bordering Mississippi in search of


a second opinion on complex diagnoses. “I get all the challenging cases, which is amazing,” he notes. In addition to seeing patients, Shukla has begun classifying his cases for research purposes, with the support of his chairman and division chief. “They all want research to happen here,” he explains. “I’m looking forward to collaborations and presenting at conferences.”

Fewer resources but less bureaucracy For James Dorman, MD, FAAN, FACP, one of the defining features of working in a rural area after his post-doctoral training was the immediate connection he was able to make with everyone from the hospital staff to members of the community. Working now as a general neurologist at Stroger Hospital in Chicago—commonly known as Cook County Hospital—Dorman currently practices at one of the nation’s busiest medical facilities. But from 2004 to 2006, he was employed as one of two neurologists in a multi-specialty practice serving the town of Dixon, IL, population 20,000, and the nearby towns of Sterling and Rock Falls. The overall community of 70,000 supported two hospitals, so Dorman and his partner each served one, but covered at the other. To handle call, they each took a week, with the hospitals transferring patients out every third week. Dorman remembers that period as a balance between limited resources and lessened bureaucracy. For example, he rarely had to wait more than an afternoon to receive a patient’s MRI results from the radiology technician. And one of the hospitals didn’t even require the doctors to show ID. When Dorman inquired about a badge, he was told, ‘No, it’s okay. We put an ad in the paper. Everyone knows you’re coming.’ “And it was true,” he says. “When I walked in the door on the first day, everyone was saying ‘Hello, Dr. Dorman.’ And I had never set foot in there before.” On the other hand, it could sometimes be nerve-wracking having fewer options for treating patients. For example, those needing a tPA medication would require transfer to larger facilities with a neurosurgeon available in case of intracranial hemorrhaging—and the transfer process could involve hours on the phone. “There were a lot of gray areas where it wasn’t really clear about whether to keep the patient or transfer them,” Dorman recalls. “And with the training wheels just off—and being a little isolated—that in itself could be intimidating.”

Small town amenities Every physician knows that there’s more to life than practicing medicine, which makes the community surrounding one’s workplace very important. On the one hand, as Dorman notes, “People in a rural area have a reputation for being relaxed and friendly, which is true. But it’s easier to be that way if your idea of a traffic jam is three people at a stop light—which it was.” Shukla has also experienced the traffic patterns unique to a rural setting, but from a different perspective. Having never needed an American driver’s license, he and his wife are now a two-car family. While she needs to bring their daughter to activities, he needs a car to travel between clinic locations. As for socializing—neither Dorman nor Shukla found that difficult, although Dorman missed the variety of restaurants he and his wife had been accustomed to. For their part, Shukla and his wife were delighted to find other families originating from the same region of India, providing them with an instant sense of extended family far from home. Perhaps the most vaunted amenity of small-town living is the lower cost of living, which can sometimes be much lower compared to urban rates. For Dorman, one other amenity that stood out was the smaller community’s attitude toward physicians. “I got the

impression that they hold doctors in high esteem,” he recalls. “It reminded me of the traditional Marcus Welby attitude. Where, in the urban area, if you’re a doctor, it’s more like you’re a dime a dozen.”

Future prospects for rural neurologists With telemedicine and other advances in health care, one could wonder if there’s still a place for small-town doctors, not to mention their specialist colleagues. Jason Hermanutz, neurology search consultant for RosmanSearch, Inc., believes the future is rosy for rural neurologists. “More and more in the last decade we’ve been seeing programs that maybe 15 years ago wouldn’t have thought of supporting neurologists locally. There are more people being treated and that’s creating opportunities for neurologists in rural areas.” Specifically, Hermanutz notes that most of the work in the rural setting is happening in hospitals, with the biggest demand for general neurologists. Even so, Hermanutz also sees flexibility offered by rural employers that isn’t being matched in urban centers. “One big advantage,” he says, “is that rural programs can create an opportunity or even build a program around a physician, instead of stating, ‘This is the position. You have to do this.’ The physician can say, ‘This is who I am; how can we make the position fit what I’m looking for?’” As an example, Hermanutz cites the recent placement of a neurologist who also wanted to use his MBA. The new job will start out at 25 percent administration, with the percentage increasing as the doctor gains experience. “That’s an incredible package that probably would have been out of reach in an urban program,” Hermanutz notes. Not only do the rural employers work hard to accommodate the doctor, but they also extend themselves to help the physician’s family. Hermanutz has seen communities provide assistance on everything from house hunting and school searches to finding work for the doctor’s spouse. Perhaps the most quantifiable differences between employment offers for rural and urban settings are rooted in the salaries, with Hermanutz consistently seeing rural compensation land in the 75th percentile for neurologists. When relatively rich loan repayments and leadership bonuses are included—to the tune of $150,000 or more—the packages offered by small communities frequently eclipse those of larger organizations.

Getting started If you’re interested in exploring opportunities to practice neurology in a rural area, Hermanutz, Shukla, and Dorman all have advice for you. Based on his experience, Shukla advises doctors needing a J-1 visa waiver to first identify the specialty or type of neurology they want to practice, and then start early to make connections with the programs. “Rural America needs doctors,” he says. “When they really need you, they’re very supportive.” Dorman notes that the doctor’s personality will play a role in determining the best opportunities to pursue. “So much of it comes down to lifestyle and career goals,” he says. “I think the main need is for general neurologists because they can handle 95 percent of what comes through the door.” And Hermanutz says, “The biggest advice I could give someone is to be really open to exploring options that you might consider to be outside your usual comfort zone. Going on two or three site visits during your job hunt is not too much. There’s a very wide world out there with opportunities you wouldn’t be able to see if you only looked at academic or large settings.” n

The Five Steps of a Strategic Job Search It’s funny how the little things can seem more daunting than the big ones. Finish medical school? Check. Excel in residency and fellowships? Check. Find that first job as a doctor? Uh-oh. It’s not that job search is so difficult. It’s just hard to know where to begin. Unlike formal training programs where the steps and expectations are made clear, job search is one of those life tasks with a very sketchy blueprint. That’s largely a factor of uniqueness: Everyone’s career path is different and the jobs needed for that path will differ as well. Luckily, some parts of the process are universal to everyone. Following are five steps that will help you be strategic about finding your first (or next) job in the field of medicine. STEP 1. Get clear on your goals. You know your specialty, but do you know where or how you want to pursue it? In broad terms, choices for neurologists include practicing, teaching, or researching. Knowing which is more important to you is a start, but it’s not quite enough to be helpful in developing your search pattern. For example, researchers might work at universities, but they could also work for the government, for corporations or labs, or for small specialty clinics. Likewise, practitioners could be working for hospitals, government systems, private practices…or they could go solo. Knowing where and how you want to work is as important to a strategic job search as knowing the content of the work itself.

18

For this step, stop and think about the first five years out of training and ask yourself: What setting do I want to be in, and what do I want to be doing for the bulk of my day? Once you have that picture in mind, do the same exercise for five-year increments until the date you expect to retire. That means that a 30-year old who wants to retire at 65 would have seven five-year blocks of time to imagine. The reason for extending the timeline out to retirement is that longterm goals can influence short-term choices. A practitioner who wants to teach at some point might choose to practice neurology at a teaching hospital where those opportunities could crop up more readily. Likewise, a doctor who anticipates going solo might benefit


from working at a smaller practice where business decisions are shared—this could give a good perspective for making the leap to self-employment down the road. Do the best you can on the extended picture, and then return your attention to the first segment of five years after training. The work you choose to do in this timeframe is the work you’ll pursue with your next job search. Step 2. Learn about the market. Now that you know what kind of job you’ll be seeking, you need a little more information. It’s not enough to simply watch for ads in the category you’ve chosen, or tell a recruiter to alert you to opportunities. In both those scenarios, you’re placing the responsibility and power for your career in someone else’s hands—that’s pretty anti-climactic after seven or more years of intensive work to get to where you are now. That said, you do want to use the ads, recruiters, and any other tools or processes that can make your search easier—but only after you’ve organized these strategic steps so you can control the direction things take. Your research doesn’t have to be exhaustive, but it should be thoughtful. If you’d like your next job to be focused on practice, for example, it would be good to have a basic understanding of the different practice settings for someone with your skill set, and the advantages and disadvantages of each. At that point, you can narrow things down to identify the organizations you’d most like to work for, perhaps based on a combination of the work itself, their reputation, and location. This is also the time to consider goals in your personal life, including family issues and continued education. Some employers and work settings are going to be conducive to those goals, while others could be less accommodating. You get extra points if your research tells you some of the challenges faced by the employers in your target market, and the solutions that are being considered by those in the field. To redeem your points, mention some of those findings in conversations and interviews to indicate that you are focused on more than just your own career path when you join someone else’s team. Step 3. Identify your top three to five employers. Your research will lead you to this stage naturally, but it’s still important to check this step off the list. Without a clear sense of preferred employers, you’re left with no actionable process to follow. As you build your list of employers, look for this data:

§ Organization name and location § Heads of the departments you would work in—their names and contact information

Step 4. Reach out to your targeted employers, regardless of the season. Whether you intend to start working in a few months or a couple of years, there’s no time like now to email a potential employer to note your interest and ask for a conversation. If your earliest start date for working is several months away, contacting the department head might make the most sense. In this case, you’d be sending a brief note of introduction and general inquiry, perhaps asking for a few minutes of time to meet in person at the next conference, or to talk on the phone in the next few weeks. The idea is to establish a relationship and to learn more about the department’s goals and initiatives, but not to worry about making formal application (since that may be premature at this stage). On the other hand, if you’re ready to launch your search, you might make your first inquiry to the organization’s recruiter if they have one. This person can arrange a tour for you, ask and answer preliminary questions related to your candidacy and make introductions to key people in a timely way. If they don’t have a recruiter, default back to the department head with a letter that expresses your interest in meeting to discuss potential opportunities in the timeframe you’ve chosen. Step 5. Be a joiner and a doer. If you follow the first four steps, you’ll almost certainly be headed to one or more offers of employment. More importantly, they’ll be offers for work you’ve chosen, at organizations you’ve specified, rather than the more random opportunities that come from relying on advertisements alone. At this stage, you’d probably (understandably) like to settle into your job and move forward with a somewhat less hectic pace than you’ve been keeping during your training. Not so fast! Remember that list of potential career goals in five-year increments from Step 1? Now is the time to begin laying the foundation for those ideas to become reality. On the job, there will be opportunities to join or lead committees, programs, business processes, etc. The sooner you jump in, the more quickly you can gain the relevant experience while also deepening your contribution to your new employer. Likewise, participation in a professional group, such as the American Academy of Neurology, gives you the opportunity to explore options that may not be well-represented in the workplace you choose. Being a joiner and doer provides the foundation to be strategic in your next job search, whether that happens in five years or 15. As a final word of advice, don’t hesitate to get started on one or all steps right away, even if you’re currently in training. The best employers are always watching for the right candidate, so conversations at an early stage are never wasted. n
