There are only three categories where any candidate can learn of a job lead: job postings, recruiting firms, and word of mouth. Endeavor Agency helps clients in all three areas.
Most candidates know of only four or five job boards which they use regularly. There are hundreds! Individuals simply do not have the time, knowledge or resources to find them all. Endeavor Agency invested hundreds of hours in compiling a database of numerous job boards for you to utilize. Endeavor helps you make the connections and start the conversations with key people on the inside of a wide variety of health care organizations to improve your odds by more than 10x of getting your foot in the door for an interview instead of just submitting an application.
Individual job seekers generally know of only a small handful of recruiters. There are more than 200,000 recruiters in the U.S. at hundreds of leading firms. Endeavor Agency invested tremendous time and resources into compiling a database of several hundred leading firms, categorized by their focus with hot links to their websites. Most recruiting firms do not advertise their jobs publicly. They prefer to hunt their candidates. Additionally, Endeavor helps you identify targeted recruiters to improve your odds dramatically of securing an interview. We help you craft verbiage to use to reach out. Most importantly, Endeavor will help you overcome the emotional challenges of reaching out to people you don’t know. These actions will help you secure countless more screening calls with recruiters.
WORD OF MOUTH
More than 80% of all jobs are filled via word of mouth without ever being advertised. There is only one way to find a job lead that is filled via word of mouth – you have to put yourself in the conversation. Endeavor helps you target the specific companies you want. Then we help you identify the key people on the inside, make connections and start conversations. The main obstacle preventing most candidates from accessing this largest pool of potential jobs is fear. Endeavor will help you overcome the emotional challenges of reaching out to people you don’t know. These actions will help you uncover many job leads that are not advertised in the very companies for which you want to work.
Everyone goes through different career phases in their lives that may take them in different directions. Change causes significant anxiety in most people. Endeavor listens closely to its clients to know more about them as a person, as well as an physician, to help them get a clear picture of what they want out of their careers and lives.
Professional Career Marketing
Before you can start looking for a new opportunity, you need to have your professional career documents and supporting materials in the best possible shape. Endeavor helps you with your resume/CV, cover letters and online profiles. Good employers want to see a sharp, professional physician and Endeavor helps ensure you stand above others for the job you are seeking. Employers generally have many well-qualified applicants from which to choose. Endeavor helps present you in a way that communicates you are the right one to join the employer’s team.
Interview Preparation and Coaching
Securing an interview is wonderful. However, the company also invited 10-20 other candidates for first-round interviews who have similar experiences and qualifications. Winning the offer for leadership and high-level health care jobs normally involves a series of interviews, which could include four or five rounds, or more. Endeavor Agency prepares clients to win the offer using the Proactive Interview model. This proprietary model teaches clients how to drive home their value and navigate each interview to a successful close to secure the next steps. Your Endeavor agent will conduct live mock interviews via video conference and telephone to help you craft your answers and improve your interview skills. Remember, your competitors have generally won the interviews for which they have competed, too. What is your competitive advantage? The training, coaching and practice you receive from Endeavor Agency.
Most opportunities look great to a candidate during the interview process, but every employer can put on a good front and hide their negatives for a short period of time. The average tenure for a professional with a new organization is less than three years, largely because they soon realize things were not entirely as they seemed before working there. To make a good decision, you need to have as much information as possible about the opportunity and not just what the employer is presenting. Endeavor helps you do this review work. Having good guidance tremendously improves your odds of getting a good opportunity.
Employment experts will tell you that negotiating directly for yourself, without assistance, is a huge mistake. Negotiations are full of pressure, even friendly ones. If your job, new practice and your livelihood on the line, there is no way for you to remain unemotional. Even professional negotiators don’t like negotiating for themselves in person because it becomes very personal. Negotiation is a skill set that takes years to master just as it took many years to become a competent leader. You would not let someone perform surgery on you who had just recently read a book about it but never performed one, would you? Why would you even consider negotiating your employment agreement yourself if you have had no training in it? Your career, your livelihood and hundreds of thousands of dollars are at stake. Endeavor’s guidance in this area alone can more than pay for your entire investment.
Landing a new job as a physician most of the time means moving to a new city. It is a huge undertaking to move your entire household from one city to the next. Moving is one of the most stressful events in any family’s life. Endeavor provides you with significant assistance to help make the whole process a lot less stressful.

Recruiting firms work for an employer – not you. Firms search for candidates for one job and the firm’s financial responsibility is to the employer. Firms also have no financial incentive to ensure you, as an individual, win that job offer. Firms will only help you with the opportunity they present you, and if you don’t win the job offer, you start the entire process over, potentially with a different recruiter.
Endeavor works for you – the individual. Our team helps you on multiple job leads and stays with you during your entire journey. We are financially incentivized to help you at every stage of your job search and to create advantages over other candidates seeking the same position(s) as you.
