Physicians Using Social Media for Job Hunting

December 29, 2010

A significant proportion of health care job seekers, including physicians, are using some form of social media to look for work, although the results are modest compared with more established means, according to a survey released Dec. 14 by the San Diego staffing company AMN Healthcare Services.

Researchers analyzed questionnaires completed by 1,248 health care professionals, including 98 physicians.

Job Search Method Percent of Physician Applicants Interviewed for the Job Offered a Job
Social media 15% 5% 4%
Text message alerts 9% 4% 0%
Referrals 80% 54% 49%
