I generally like to remind my readers about the importance of social networking. Many physicians tend to get very isolated because of their busy schedules. They may lose contact with friends and colleagues from medical school and residency. However, it's never too late to reconnect with those individuals.
How do you find them? There's a relatively good chance that you'll find them through Facebook, LinkedIn, or Google.
If you're searching for a job or strongly considering a career transition into a non-clinical career, then make sure to build and cultivate your social network. You don't have to spend several hours on Facebook every night, but make sure that you're connecting with people on a social level so that they're thinking about you.
Speaking of social networking, don't forget that we offer a valuable resource: the "Non-Clinical Healthcare Professionals" social network. Also, join our LinkedIn Group and make sure to become a fan on Facebook.
