A: Assuming that each recruiter has explained the company and job, work with the recruiter who contacted you first.
Q: WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE TELEPHONE INTERVIEW?
A: Often hiring facilities use an initial telephone interview to screen a number of candidates. Although these interviews are usually very brief, it’s important to be prepared. Keep your updated resume close by and research the organization before the interview. Your All Med Search recruiter will also provide you with a list of questions you might want to consider asking during the phone interview.
Q: HOW CAN I WORK WITH THE RECRUITER DURING THE INTERVIEW PROCESS?
A: It is critical that your keep in touch with your recruiter throughout your interview process. Be sure to tell your recruiter when the client calls you directly for any reason or if an interview has been scheduled or postponed. After each interview, call the recruiter to share what happened. If an offer is made, you’ll want to discuss it with your recruiter in detail. Let the recruiter know if you have other interviews and if you are getting close to another offer. This will help your recruiter represent you and secure the best offer for you.
Q: MY CURRENT FACILITY MADE ME A COUNTER OFFER. HOW DO I DEAL WITH THAT?
A: The counter offer could look pretty tempting and you may even consider staying in your current position. Statistically speaking, 72% of employees who accept a counter offer end up leaving that job within one year. Consider the following before making your decision:
- Ask yourself why you had to resign before your boss offered you more?
- If you get more money, where did it come from? Is it just your next raise given to you early?
- It is possible your company will start looking for someone to take your place at a lower salary?
- Your boss now knows you're restless and your company loyalty may be in question.
- If economic times get rough, layoffs may start with you
Q: WHAT INFORMATION WILL ALL MED SEARCH REQUEST FROM ME?
A: To help match you to the most appropriate position, your recruiter will ask for the following:
- Current chronological resume
- Current salary and salary expectations (We decline to work with candidates who refuse to share, or distort, salary information.)
- Geographic considerations

Frequently Asked Questions from Healthcare Employers
Q: AT WHAT STAGE OF THE SCREENING PROCESS DO YOU SUBMIT RESUMES?
A: we send you a resume, we’ve already briefed the candidate on your company, the job opportunity, and the salary to make sure they are a fit with who you are looking for.
Q: CAN WE TRUST IN THE QUALITY OF YOUR CANDIDATES?
A: We screen our candidates thoroughly to assess their experience, background and qualifications. We verify the candidate’s state licensure. Our reputation is a reflection of the healthcare professionals we send you. We want to build a relationship with your company; therefore, we only present stellar candidates.
Q: I'VE HEARD THAT SOME RECRUITERS PLACE PEOPLE IN A FACILITY THEN ACTIVELY RECRUIT OTHERS FROM THAT SAME HOSPITAL. WHAT IS YOUR POSITION ON THIS?
A: Our clients hire us and pay our fees. We consider it unethical for us to place someone at a company and then try to recruit another person from that same company. The only exception to this rule is if one of your employees contacts us directly. If there is NO doubt that this person is determined to leave your company, we might consider working with the candidate.
Q: WHAT HAPPENS IF WE ARE SENT THE SAME RESUME FROM TWO RECRUITERS?
A: Ask each recruiter if he/she personally recruited the candidate and provided your company name to the candidate. If the recruiters both affirm, we suggest you drop the candidate from your consideration as this shows a lack of character. If you choose to continue pursuing the candidate, give credit to the recruiter who first provided the resume.
Q: A RECRUITER GAVE ME A RESUME SIX MONTHS AGO. I DIDN'T HIRE THE PERSON. NOW I AM READY TO HIRE THE CANDIDATE. DO I OWE A FEE TO THE RECRUITER?
A: YES. A recruiter earns a referral fee for up to eighteen months from the date a candidate was submitted.
Q: HOW MANY RECRUITERS ARE ENOUGH?
A: We recommend working with no more than two recruiters—more than that and you’ll find your recruiters begin to cross efforts and contact the same candidates. This is a waste of time for all parties involved and causes a lot of upset and confusion. Giving your recruiter an exclusive search or putting them on a retainer assures you will receive their full attention and the most efficient search process.
Q: DO YOU OFFER PROGRAMS TO RECRUIT SEVERAL CANDIDATES FOR A FACILITY?
A: Yes, we do. We have several programs available, depending on your unique recruitment needs.
