Physician NonClinical Careers with John Jurica

Mar 7, 2023

In this week’s episode, John describes why some job searches become so frustrating and unproductive. It can feel like we’re bogged down and not making any progress once we’ve decided to pursue that nonclinical position.

Part of the explanation is that we may be expecting too much. When making such a drastic move the path is often not as straightforward as we’re expecting. And we must learn a whole new set of skills.

Common frustrations result from NOT doing the following:

  1. Fully committing to the process,
  2. Addressing your self-limiting beliefs,
  3. Devoting insufficient time to the process,
  4. Narrowing our search to one specific job,
  5. Obtaining new skills to demonstrate your commitment,
  6. Finding and engaging a mentor or two,
  7. Growing your network and finding a sponsor at each company,
  8. Optimizing your LinkedIn profile, and,
  9. Converting your CV to a winning resumé.

Address each of these and your job search will progress more quickly.
