Top 3 Reasons to Respond to Recruiters
Do I need to respond, even if I'm not interested?
The job search process can be a stressful time for any physician but getting correspondence from multiple recruiters can add to this stress. You may have initially had great interest in an opportunity, but since applying that has changed and the recruiter continues to reach out. I have been asked by multiple physicians, do I still need to reach out to let them know I'm no longer interested? The answer is yes! Recruiters may not know you are no longer interested so let's look at the top 3 reasons to reach back out.
Many recruiters have time set aside throughout the day and week to make phone calls or to reach out via email, so if you are trying to just avoid their calls or delete their emails, it doesn't mean that you are off their radar. Reach out to let them know that you are no longer interested in the opportunity. Telling the recruiter that you are not interested in a professional manner is not going to be detrimental to you, but they will know that you are no longer interested.
When letting a recruiter know that you are no longer interested in their opportunity you do not want to burn any bridges, so avoid yelling or using foul language. Make sure to thank them for their time and give a brief reason as to why you are no longer interested, i.e. spouse is doing a fellowship in another area, practice preferences have changed, no longer looking because you have signed with an organization.
