If you are responsible for hiring staff in a doctor’s office, you might be overwhelmed by the response to your classified ad. Understandably, you want to hire the best person for the position. Here are a few tips to help you with the selection process.
Experience. If your office atmosphere is busy and hectic, you might lean toward applicants with ample experience. This can reduce the length of training, wherein the person can quickly jump in and begin completing assignments.
Verify references. Even if you need to fill a position quickly, do not hire a new staff member without verifying his or her references or former employment. When desperate for work, some people will make up references and exaggerate their experience.
Choose an applicant with additional training. Some job applicants broaden their skills by taking advanced cardiac life support training courses and obtaining other certifications. These applicants are an asset to your office because they have the skills to assist in a medical emergency.
