Neurology Career Center Virtual Career Fair: Finding Your Ideal Job

Convenience, privacy, efficiency, effectiveness, cost savings―just some of the benefits candidates can expect when participating in a Neurology Career Center Virtual Career Fair. When it comes to the job search process, nothing beats this online option for return on the investment of only an hour or two of your time.

Stephanie Wyrostek, DO, is just one of many to have experienced these benefits from a virtual career fair hosted by the Neurology Career Center. As a neurology resident during the heart of the pandemic, she didn’t have very many opportunities for an in-person job search. Luckily, she discovered the Academy’s online option in April 2021 as part of that year’s all-virtual Annual Meeting. “I had access to the AAN mobile app and the virtual career fair was advertised there,” she recalled. With nothing to lose, Wyrostek completed the quick registration process and signed up to meet potential employers online.

“I actually thought it was really convenient,” she said recently. “They had the listings so I could sort them by my specialty and hiring managers were all available so I was able to talk with them right away.”

Although Wyrostek already had a one-year fellowship lined up, she didn’t want to wait to the last minute to conduct her job search. Nor did she want

to default to the job offer she already had with her current residency without at least exploring other opportunities. She’s glad she followed her instinct because the conversations she had that April afternoon introduced her to a location and employer she didn’t even know existed: Gundersen Health System in La Crosse, WI.

“I’m from Pittsburgh and I’ve lived there most of my life, although I did my fellowship in Texas,” Wyrostek explains. “I had never heard of La Crosse before, so I wouldn’t have thought of it on my own.”

The steps Wyrostek followed were “pretty straightforward” as she recalls. Once she had registered for the career fair, she started filtering the potential employers by her multiple sclerosis specialty, in line with her goal of working in MS rather than general neurology. Since she was looking for jobs focused on outpatient care, she used that criterion as a second filter. Then, she says, “I remember there were some jobs that were leadership positions and I didn’t want that, considering this was my first job out of fellowship. That narrowed it down significantly.”

Now, with a smaller group of potential positions, Wyrostek says she talked to everybody that was left on the list, or about five or six, including


employers from Pennsylvania, Virginia, and yes― La Crosse. Those conversations led her to a longer phone interview with the Gundersen recruiter and ultimately to in-person interviews in La Crosse later in the summer.

Wyrostek’s in-person meetings took place in a single day, shoehorned into a vacation with her husband. The two had planned to drive from Pennsylvania to Yellowstone but now included La Crosse in their itinerary―with Wyrostek’s interview suit and shoes sandwiched under the car carrier in a garment bag for the whole trip. She was offered the job and was able to start when her fellowship ended.

Now, with the benefit of experience, Wyrostek has some thoughts about virtual interviews compared to in-person. “I think the virtual interview itself is pretty similar to in-person,” she said, “unless you have technical issues or lag. But I think the in-person interview is still important because you have to see the city. That’s just as important for your happiness.”

As for the value of the online career fair, Wyrostek is enthusiastic. “I can’t speak more highly of having all that information available to you virtually, just having it there on a plate without having to seek it out. I don’t think virtual is a substitute for in-person. But for screening, it’s great. You don’t travel, you don’t have to spend money or take time off work.”

If you’re thinking of trying a virtual career fair, Wyrostek has some advice: “For someone coming out of training I would encourage them to explore the market. It’s really tempting to take the first job that’s offered to you because it’s such a hassle to keep job searching.

“If you’re open to different geographic locations, you’ll have more options,” she added. “But if you have a geographic restriction, at least explore all the jobs you can in that area―otherwise, you won’t know what else is possible. Then, if you do explore more but still take the first job, at least you’ll know that you looked and that you’ve made the best decision that you can.”

For Wyrostek, staying open to new options brought her an opportunity she couldn’t have planned for. “This job is pretty much what I wanted,” she said. “I have a lot of control over my clinic and I get a lot of time to spend with my patients which is one of the most important things I look for in a job. And La Crosse is a little gem. I’m really glad I talked with the recruiter. The way she described it is exactly how

it’s been, with good recreation and friendly people. It’s been a great experience.”

Would she use a virtual career fair next time she needs a job? “Oh, yes,” came the quick answer from Wyrostek. “My job search was pretty painless. Because of the virtual and telephone options that were available, I didn’t have to go to places that I could rule out on screening. If there was going to be a deal breaker I was able to find that out without pursuing it. I would definitely use the virtual job fair again.”

If using a virtual career fair sounds like a good idea to you as well, you’re in luck―the AAN’s Neurology Career Center offers them annually in January, April, and October. To find the next one, simply check the Career Center’s web page at and click on Events. And don’t forget about the Career Center’s other helpful offerings such as the Salary Calculator Tool, which Wyrostek used to research pay for her position. The CV review is another valuable option, providing advice from experts for making your CV the best it can be. One way or the other, the AAN Neurology Career Center has something for everybody, starting with the virtual career fair. 

Building Your CV—One Brick at a Time

Whether you use a template or start from scratch, the concept of building your CV brick by brick still stands. To help you with that process, here are some standard “bricks” to get you started.

Page Setup. This step is often left to last, which is unfortunate. By setting up your pages from the beginning, you can define parameters that will help you create a consistent, elegant look. Here are suggested elements: A document with 1” margins on all sides; a footer or header that starts on the second page and contains your name and the page number; a simple and common font such as Times New Roman or Arial or Calibri; use of 11- or 12-point font size for section headings and 10- or 11-point for content.

Contact Information. As much as possible, the goal is to create a contact section that is clear, simple, and useful. That generally means confining the data to your name and then just one phone number (cell phone is probably best) and one email address (your personal address is more private than your institution’s email). You can add your city and state, but more information beyond that is not needed. By limiting your contact information, you’ll avoid the

confusion and missed communication that comes with offering too many options.

Professional Profile. This is a section that wasn’t commonly used for CVs even 10 years ago but which is growing in popularity now. It normally consists of three or four narrative sentences that serve to introduce the candidate while summarizing the core of what he or she can provide. Here’s an example:

“Outgoing, dedicated clinician with research and teaching experience in Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis. Strengths include patient care, diagnosis and follow-up, and a comforting communication style appreciated by families and caretakers. Bilingual in Spanish and English; motivated by a genuine desire to improve neurological care in a clinical setting.”

Education/Post-graduate Training. These sections often build themselves because the data is so straightforward. Even so, they can usually be improved with small points of strategy. Start by deciding whether to use one section or two. If you have only three or four entries at this point— perhaps a Bachelor’s degree, your medical degree, your intern year and a residency—one category might be fine. But if there are more entries, you’ll highlight the information better by putting the degree programs (such as a Bachelors, Masters, MD, etc.) into an Education section and the training experiences into Post-graduate Training. This section should appear ahead of Education, as it will be more recent and also more relevant to the jobs you’re seeking. Adding two or three lines to the training entries to describe your duties and responsibilities will add helpful context.

Experience. Depending on your career so far, this could be one or several categories, with such titles as Clinical Experience or Research Experience or Teaching Experience, etc. If you have had only one or two roles so far, a catchall category for Professional Experience will work well. Again, in all cases, adding two or three lines of context will help hiring committees understand the level of your work.

Leadership Roles. If you have participated in committees, served as chief resident, presented during rounds or held other leadership roles during your training or work experience, this category can give you the opportunity to present that information.

Professional Activities. This can be used as an umbrella category, with subsections for things like publications, presentations, conference attendance, professional memberships, etc. On the other 11

hand, if you have a lot of entries for any of those subsections, starting a new category for that one will make more sense.

Community Involvement. Have you been volunteering every summer on medical missions, or lending a hand at community immunization clinics? This is a good category to include, since it helps hiring committees see your commitment and breadth in the field. Non-medical volunteering can also be included, but care should be taken not to over-stuff the section with intermittent or low-level activities such as annual park cleanups.

Additional Work Experience. If your professional experience section left out some of your work history, you can use this section to recapture it. To decide which experiences to include, consider your goal and how the experience might add to your credibility. For example, having worked in college at the front desk of a clinic? Highly relevant. At the front desk of a library? Maybe not so much.

Honors and Awards. Although traditional CVs often place this category near the beginning of the document, there’s an argument for moving it further back. For one thing, unless they’re very prestigious, the awards aren’t likely to influence the decision to interview you. More importantly, these lists can be very lengthy; when recruiters view your CV online, they’ll be forced to scroll through multiple screens before arriving at the information they desire.

Additional Information. This could also be named Personal Interests, but if you have facts left over that you want include, Additional Information is a more flexible category heading. For example, you could include items such as language fluency, hobbies, sporting achievements, etc. It can be a nice category to end the CV, since it bookends the Professional Profile at the beginning, and provides more context about you as an individual.

Growing Your CV

Thinking of your CV as a living document will help you remember that it needs to evolve and grow along with your career. In the past (when desktop computers hadn’t yet appeared), this meant rolling the old CV back into the typewriter and typing in a new position or publication at the bottom of the page. Now we can not only add new information without the typewriter’s limitations, but we can also revise the CV to better reflect the candidate’s current strengths and the likely interests of the hiring committee.

Here are some CV sections that will need extra attention as your career grows:

Education/Post-graduate Training. If your training is relatively recent—perhaps within the last 10 years—it makes sense to place it early in the CV. But if you’ve been working in the field for 10 or more years, your professional work experience will be more relevant to the next hiring committee. As your career moves forward, consider shifting these sections later in the document and moving your professional experience categories forward.

Experience. Whatever categories you’re using (Professional, Clinical, Research, etc.) remember to update your duties now and then to demonstrate your growing levels of responsibility. Experiences that are no longer current should be capped off with an ending date and put into past tense in the description.

Professional Activities. You may have started out with this as an umbrella category for multiple types of activity. But if you’ve been steadily publishing or presenting or attending conferences, the subsections will have grown in length and the category is likely becoming unwieldy. The interim solution will be to transition the subsections into categories of their own; the long-term solution might involve new documents—addenda—to house the lengthy lists apart from the CV itself.

Community Involvement, Additional Work Experience. These are categories that will likely need pruning as your career grows, in order to maintain relevancy. For example, last year’s volunteering at an immunization clinic carries weight and recency when you’re just finishing a fellowship. But 10 years out, that same experience might feel small or dated compared to your professional achievements. The same rule applies to categories with non-medical content that is growing more distant as your career advances.

Honors and Awards. As much as you hate to downplay your awards, this is another section that might need trimming as time goes on. Rather than simply cutting the oldest entries, however, try clustering them into two subsections: Most Recent, and Earlier. For the most recent, simply naming them as you normally would is fine. In the Earlier subsection, you can summarize with, “15+ additional awards, including:” and then provide a list of only the best two or three. 

Perhaps this has happened to you: You go onto the AAN Neurology Career Center job board and start perusing the postings. Before long, you’ve identified a position that sounds pretty good. You read the information with growing interest, your cursor hovering over “Apply Now”…and hovering…and hovering. And then you move on to another position, or perhaps you leave the site.

What just happened? The diagnosis is simple: You’re suffering from Application Hesitation. Despite your best intentions, you’re stopping yourself from completing a few short steps that could lead to an interesting new job.

So that explains what’s happening, but not why. Here are some of the reasons people hesitate to apply for jobs, even when they’re very interested. If you see any that describe your situation, the prescription

Top 10 Ways to Overcome Application Hesitation

provided will help you overcome the barrier.

10 Reasons for Application Hesitation and the Prescribed Antidotes

1. Fearing that clicking “apply” will open the floodgates. You may have had the experience of answering an online ad and suddenly finding your inbox filling up with unwanted solicitations. That’s a reasonable fear with other job boards, but the Academy sees you as a valued member, not a product to sell to advertisers, so your information is kept confidential.

Antidote: Click “apply.” You’re not likely to receive unwanted email from employers you contact on the Career Center’s job board but if you do, just opt out.

2. Fearing that applying could initiate a process you don’t have time for. It’s one thing to complete a brief application process, but another to fit conversations and meetings

into your schedule. You might be concerned that applying will obligate you to steps you can’t commit to right now.

Antidote: If your application results in contact from a recruiter or employer, simply explain your schedule conflicts in a brief response. In most cases, they’ll be able to work with you to fit your calendar.

3. Unprepared for the interview process. Scheduling interviews may not be your concern so much as actually participating in them. It may have been awhile since you’ve interviewed for employment as opposed to matching for a training program. Indeed, perhaps you’ve never done that as a neurologist, at least not yet.

Antidote: You’re going to have to cross this bridge sometime, so why not now? Go ahead and apply, then get busy. You’ll find helpful articles in the Neurology Career Center to help you prep for interviews.


4. Not feeling certain the job will be a good fit. This is one of those closed-loop problems. Without more information, you don’t know if this job would be right for you— but because you don’t know, you hesitate to apply, which is how you would get more information.

Antidote: Apply. Determining fit is something that happens during conversations with the recruiter or employer, which is what happens after they receive your application.

5. Not feeling clear on your overall career direction. Of course, you know you’ll be working as a neurologist, but you may be feeling less clarity about practicing in a subspecialty, or what balance you want between research and teaching, or any number of other issues relating to your career path. This can lead to a kind of window-shopping process where you review postings in the hopes of finding that clarity, without ever moving forward.

Antidote: Go ahead and take a spin through the postings without clicking apply. Then collect your favorites and apply to the two that appeal to you most. Just starting the conversations with recruiters may be enough to help sort through your priorities, but if it isn’t, you can repeat the exercise. Eventually you will have enough information to make good comparisons between different options.

6. Not feeling certain you’re qualified for the job. Some job postings are very detailed while others leave a lot to the imagination. In both cases, it’s easy for a candidate to feel intimidated and uncertain about being qualified.

Antidote: Deciding whether you’re qualified is actually not your job―it’s the job of the recruiter or employer. When you feel interested but uncertain, go ahead and apply. Even if you’re not qualified, you may receive information about other positions for which your skills are a better match.

7. Not wanting to waste anyone’s time. This is a cousin to the issue of feeling unqualified or uncertain about what the position requires. You hate to start something just to have it fizzle out when you could have saved everyone the trouble to begin with.

Antidote: Again, let the recruiters make that determination; it’s their job. If you asked them, they would almost certainly tell you they’d rather spend the time with you than not, even if the situation doesn’t end with a match.

8. Finding something that’s “off” in the posting. Perhaps you’re not certain about the location, or you’d prefer a different mix of duties, or you’re concerned the salary won’t work.

Antidote: This is a case where you can assume too much. As in, assuming you understand the position from such a short description, or assuming nothing about the position can be changed. Applying will give you entrée to the conversations that will give you the facts you need.

9. Not feeling certain about building a career with this employer. How do you know this hospital or practice is wellmanaged, or that you’ll be treated well by them? How can you be sure they’re growing, or will help you manage your career well?

Antidote: In truth, you might never feel complete certainty

about a potential employer before you sign on. Instead of setting certainty as a goal, vow to do your due diligence before accepting an offer by talking with others or researching web sites for reviews by other employees. In the meantime, go ahead and apply, or the question will be moot.

10. Not feeling ready to commit to an offer. You may be checking the postings a few months or even years early, in terms of when your training will be finished. Or, you may be right on time, but still feeling hesitant about starting this next chapter in your career.

Antidote: Ask any recruiter and they’re likely to tell you they’d rather hear from you early than not at all. Go ahead and apply so you can start the conversation about this role or employer. If you’re ahead of schedule, you can say so and let the recruiter decide whether to keep moving forward. You may be surprised to learn that some opportunities can be locked in a long time in advance, and sometimes include a signing bonus or other financial incentive. But no worries—if you’re not ready to make that commitment, you only need to say so.

So…should you apply?

Yes! You really should. Your reasons for hesitating are valid, but also permeable. That is, although each of these 10 reasons makes sense, none of them preclude you from contacting the employer or recruiter. By clicking to apply, you begin a conversation and a relationship that could lead to the best job of your career. And even if it doesn’t, you’ll be more connected and informed than if you had sat on the sidelines. So, go ahead: Stop hovering your cursor and Apply Now.  17
