Publisher’s Note, September 2017
This month Whitman Partners unveiled a new website, one that we hope will bring even greater resources to our friends and associates with more speed and clarity.
The one place we hope everyone visits—candidates for Director of Surgical Services positions and hiring managers alike—is our map of job opportunities throughout the nation. On this map we pinpoint locations of more than 500 open Director of Surgical Services positions, whether or not it is a facility with which we have a contract.
This map is a fitting illustration of our business philosophy. We want the recruitment industry to improve—to be more open. We hope to disrupt the normal inefficient channels of recruitment. We want Director of Surgical Services candidates to have easier access to this valuable information and to act upon it quickly. In the name of greater efficiency and transparency, we offer this resource so that surgical facilities will be able to gain wider visibility for their open positions and make a better hire faster. It benefits everyone when candidates connect easily with the best match for their skills, career path, and aspirations.
So come for the map! And while you’re on the website, check out our other great resources, such as our Director of Surgical Services Review magazine, featuring articles of interest to candidates and to perioperative leaders on topics such as resumés, interviews, Lean philosophy and practices, and mentoring the Millennial generation of nurses and leaders. Come learn about our offerings and benefits, such as scholarships for candidates and their family members, conference discounts, and free test prep for the Certified Surgical Services Manager (CSSM) certification. We’d love to be by your side as you move through your career in this ever-changing, busy, and fulfilling world of surgical services.
