Fall means fellowship interview season for many institutions. Fall also kicks off an unofficial job hunting season for newly minted senior PEM fellows.
Dr. Mark Roback, the Director of the Division of Emergency Medicine at the University of Minnesota Children’s Hospital, first created this handout after interviewing for his first “real job” over 20 years ago. He shares his tips from the prospective of the applicant and as someone who now hires. Dr. Roback has recently updated it for PEMNetwork readers.
The handout covers recognizing the large range of jobs available, how to evaluate jobs based on your needs and resources, and tips for negotiating the best position possible. You’ll find it helpful whether you’re looking for your first job or your fifteenth.
