Late last year I acquired Healthcare IT Central, a healthcare IT job board and career website and have since been diving into the health IT jobs and recruiting space. The site continues to grow at an amazing rate. We now are helping 20,568 job seekers find employment from over 800 health IT companies. In fact, 11,649 healthcare IT professionals have active resumes in our system and we send out a weekly Health IT eNewsletter each week to almost 16,000 Health IT professionals.

If you’re out there looking for a job in the Healthcare IT field, I recommend you register as a job seeker and search through our hundreds of healthcare IT jobs. All of this is offered for free to job seekers. It’s so incredibly satisfying to help thousands of people find a job in healthcare IT. Hopefully many readers of this site will find it helpful as well.

We also offer a number of resources for health IT employers that want to post their jobs, search our resume database for the right candidate or sponsor the weekly newsletter. A little birdie told me we might be rolling out a series of health IT career focused webinars as well.

Finding the right people for your organization is a really challenging task. However, once you find the right one, it’s incredibly satisfying as well.

Along with Healthcare IT Central’s job board, the Healthcare IT Today blog provides some really valuable health IT focused career content. Take a look at a few recent posts:

  • What Not to Do: Radio Silence – A great look at what not to do when searching for a job.
  • 4 Main Compensation Options for Health IT Consultants – A lot of people are considering switching jobs and becoming consultants. This post will give you a lot of insight on the different consultant payment options.
  • My Best Career Advice – This is part of the new “Ask Cassie” series where you can ask a health IT career question and Cassie Sturdevant will answer it in a future post. Feel free to ask in the comments of this post and I’ll forward it on to her as well.

I’ll admit that I’m still really new in the health IT recruiting, jobs and career space. However, I’ve enjoyed learning the various idiosyncrasies. If you have thoughts, ideas, or comments on the various sites, I’d love to hear them. I always love learning new things and making new connections.
