Tips to make your Advanced Practice Job Search organized


Whether you are searching for your first position out of school, or are looking to explore or expand your specialty experience, the following tips will help you organize your Advanced Practice Provider job search so that you’ll be noticed and stand out from the crowd.


Get Organized

It is likely that the vast majority of your job search will be completed online. Almost all healthcare facilities have you apply online.

  • Create a spreadsheet to keep track of where you’ve sent your resume and login information
  • Create a few follow up templates to respond to jobs, request for more information, etc.
  • Block time to job search every day. Finding a new job is a job, so be sure to make time for it.
  • Also keep track of details such as which companies you have heard back from, who you spoke to, the date of all communication, and the outcome of each application and interview.
  • Designate an area so you can keep track of what you’re doing
  • Have a hard copy file for papers, etc.


Update and optimize your Provider resume

You want your resume to be strong.When updating your resume be sure to consider other factors including:

  • Accolades and Accomplishments
  • Any new job responsibilities and duties
  • Measurable Achievements

Check out my June 2nd post for helpful tips on creating a resume that makes it off the pile. Remember your resume must sell you and your experience, skills and background. You have to show them what you bring to the table.



Determine Your Goals

Now it is time to consider what your specific goals are. For example, if you’re a new grad you might be looking for anyone who will hire you but still you have an idea of what you want your first job to look like. More experienced NPs or PAs may be searching for positions in a specific medical specialty or to increase their skills in their current area of specialty.


Other things to consider: how far you are willing to commute to and from work; if you’re willing to relocate; your shift preference and of course your salary requirements.


Networking and Research

Who do you want to work for? It’s a good idea to make a list of hospitals, practices, physicians you want to work with and then research if they are looking.


One the most effective ways to find a new job is networking. Reaching out to friends and professionals  who know the quality of your work. Selectively, tell people that you might be considering a change for the right opportunity. Talk to people you know at the companies where you want to work. Remember to ask that they respect your privacy, so your current employer does not find out. Other sources to network with – individuals you have come across over the years, colleagues from NP or PA school, your clinical rotations, during training, at professional events, and at networking events.



Being organized will make your job search less stressful and help as you successfully navigate your Advanced Practice Provider job search.
