Healthcare Source : Job Search Sites Review

 

HealthcareSource.com have been connecting job seekers with employers and recruiters in the healthcare industry successfully for over a decade. In fact, with over 2,000 healthcare facilities using the features and services of the site, they are considered to be one of the leading providers in this field.

They have also been ranked number one in overall vendor performance by the KLAS research team for 2013. In fact, they have been a top performer in the KLAS report for both 2012 and 2011 as well. Job seekers find their search and career advancement tools easy to use and very helpful, while employers find the simple pricing plans to be easy to understand.

Job Seekers

The HealthcareSource site has strong basic functionality that will help job seekers to find exactly what they are looking for.

Job Searching:
The most basic function of the site is searching through the jobs database. The first thing you will appreciate is being told exactly how many jobs are available and how many healthcare facilities are currently advertising. Obviously these numbers will fluctuate. Start by entering either your desired job title, skills, hospital, or department in the search box and then your desired location. As the results page appears, you will have the chance to sort and filter (in case too many are returned!). You can set the distance range from your desired location anywhere from 1 to 100 miles; filter based on the shift, schedule, even specific hospitals or facility and category.

Profile & Job Variety:
This makes searching very easy to perform and then filter or sort. There is also quite a large variety of the types of jobs offered on the site. They range from clinical to professional to office and clerical. So, really anyone in the healthcare field could find a new home here.

Once you are about to apply for your first job, you will have the chance to create a profile. This will also enable you to upload a resume, which can make applying for jobs much easier and quicker.

Recruiters

This site seems to be built specifically for employers/recruiters. They proudly proclaim a 98% satisfaction rate and high reorders. They offer a number of high-end and rather unique services to their clients including applicant tracking, which appears to be done through some advanced software applications. They even offer behavioral assessments that can be used for both general staff and leadership or management evaluations. This makes it easy to know that you are hiring the right people.

The company also offers high tech reference checking software along with learning and performance management applications. Given this range of features and services, all of their pricing is customized and will require direct contact with the company. It almost seems as if the job board is an afterthought.

Special Features

HealthcareSource.com also offers a blog, with some very good ideas about finding a healthcare industry job, but primarily focused on employers and how they manage their employment processes and find top talent. There is even the option for employers and recruiters to request a 15 minute call from the company to have any questions addressed. It may also be helpful to take a look at some of the client videos and even profiles of successful and satisfied clients to get a better idea of what you can expect when using this company.

Support

Getting in touch with Healthcare Source is very easy. Their contact page has a full listing of all toll-free help phone numbers and email addresses. There is also a call-back service where you may request a free 15-minute phone conversation with a dedicated representative.

Bottom Line

Overall, HealthcareSource.com seems to be very focused on the employer side of the healthcare industry. The job board is also very functional and those looking for work will do well here, but they lack some of the additional tools and features of sites that are more targeted to helping job seekers specifically. Still, this is worth your time due to the high number of employers available.
