We are blind until we see,
That in the human plan,
Nothing is worth the making,
If it does not make the man.

Why build these cities glorious,
If man unbuilded goes?
In vain we build the world,
Unless the builder grows.

Edwin Markham

Do Some Research

When your mission is finding a search firm, the first step is research. The easiest place to do this is online. Use search engines to find "Physician search firms," or "Physician Recruiters" and look through your query's results. First impressions are important. Is the firms website attractive, up-to-date, etc.. Does it have significant content and useful information? From here, start looking for information about the firm. Take notes on details such as client lists, firm size, industries and functional areas in which they specialize, and geographic areas in which they operate. After taking note of these items, ask yourself:

Does this search firm specialize in the area and have functional expertise in the discipline in which I am looking to hire? As an employer, do their recruiters focus on my needs? Do they claim to attend to my questions and other needs promptly and in an efficient matter? Will they make concentrated attempts to understand the needs of my organization? And, will candidates they present be highly qualified and interested in the open position?

While browsing the search firms website, be ready to ask questions through their contact form or contact e-mail address. Make yourself available to speak with them by telephone immediately. Fill our their contact form. Investigate their recruiters by posing questions regarding their expertise and experience.

Experience, Reputation and Size

Finding the a good balance of experience and size is critical in your search for a recruiting firm. There are large, national firms whose senior recruiters closely manage high-level searches, but delegate others to junior staff. Ask the recruiter if he or she will be working with you throughout the entire recruitment process. Also, many of these large firms have restrictions that disallow them recruiting from several organizations. This limits your access to the best candidates.

Looking at the opposite extreme in regard to size, small firms do not often have access to the networks and resources that larger firms possess, thus limiting their ability to present the most qualified candidates. Many are new search firms that are inexperienced and do not yet have effective networking and researching systems in place. Thus many turn simply to e-recruiting, taking a clients job orders and trying to fill them through searching online job boards. You're most qualified candidates cannot be found through this methodology because most top-performers do not post their resume online leaving you with candidates who are actively looking for a job. When looking for quality talent, this route is one to avoid.

Chase, McKewen & Associates, LLC is a nice balance of size and experience, a firm with over 7 years in the Physician search and staffing industry. Maintaining a focus on personal attention to clients needs, ChaseMcKewen possesses the strength of a national presence, years of networking in specific industries and functional areas, and the resources to ensure that no stone is unturned in your search.
