With so many options, searching for a new position can be overwhelming. In addition to working full time, just narrowing down your options to fine tune your search to fit your goals can be extremely time consuming. One way to effectively streamline your job search is to work with an agency. At Novia, we have been working with healthcare leaders for over 20 years to assist in fine tuning individual job searches to place our candidates in positions that take them to the next step in their career while also delivering on their specific requirements. Through our experienced recruitment team, we are able to match individual candidate needs with those of our client hospitals who often prefer to hire through the “invisible job market” of positions that never make it to the public.
