So how do you find a job as new PA??💉
.
You guys may remember that I went to PA school in NYC, and although I *learned* to love the city, I knew I wanted to be in more rural medicine - better yet: in my home state of VT for at least a little bit of time! 🌲🍁, which made me learn A LOT about the job hunting process!
.
So, here are my 🌟 TOP TIPS 🌟:
✔️document your achievements + update your CV as you go.
-
✔️use google, indeed, direct practice/hospital websites and take advantage of networking you’ve done and schools resources
-
✔️start early...but not too early: 3 MONTHS before graduation is a strong place to start ACTIVELY applying, but don’t get discouraged if you’re not hearing anything quite yet. Be more aggressive the closer you get to graduation + the PANCE. Before 3 months out, I suggest perusing what’s out there for job offers in your desired location/speciality/etc. just to get a sense
-
✔️ALWAYS write a unique COVER LETTER for each position. Yes, it’s tedious, but it’s genuine rather than generic. I probs have somewhere around 20+ on my desktop still 🙈
-
✔️be open to a RECRUITER. ❌some of these can be a little much, but I ended up working with a FANTASTIC recruiter who helped me nail the job and got me a sweet offer in a rural area! ✅ For those looking for a hospital-based job: try to find the hospital recruiter email on their online applications or directly reach out. I’ve heard success with this too! P.s. using a recruiter is NOT required, but can be helpful!
-
✔️be open to COMPROMISE. In many areas the PA job openings are booming, but it still can be difficult to find the right one for YOU - in the right location/specialty/salary/etc. As a new grad, it’s hard to have that kind of experience to give us leverage when it comes to finding the *perfect* job. Trust me - it’s out there but may look different: I compromised a little on location, but ended up getting the job of my dreams in a really awesome area that I’ve come to love.
.
.
Okay, so those are my quick tips! Thinking of doing a post regarding offer letters and when/what to negotiate as a new grad sometime too! ✌🏼
.

Let me know if you’d want that or if you have extra tips! 👇🏼.

✨ Finished my week strong in the OR on Friday. I’ve been scheduled with our ocular oncologist a lot lately which means...more variety! We do conjunctival biopsies, radiotherapy plaque insertions, and mass removals to name a few.

In addition, since my attending has completed three fellowships...yes, three, including one in Oculoplastics, we also get to do orbital decompressions, Mohs reconstructions, and DCR’s. I get to first assist in all these cases. Here we are doing a decompression for Graves thyroid eye disease. We are deep in the medial orbit debulking ethmoid air cells to allow the globe to recess thus reducing proptosis. We are using @stryker.spine technology to do this, using 3D CT orbit and skull imaging. What a time in medicine for patients! ——————————
👁 Are you a PA interested in Ophthalmology, Ocular Oncology or  Oculoplastics? Let me know! Happy weekend everyone! #ophthalmology #oculoplasticspa #surgery #womeninmedicine #physicianassistant #goals #prepa #premed #medicalblogger.

So you graduated PA school (yay!), but how long does it take to really start *working* as a PA-C?
.
Here’s what you should know to help prepare best for post-grad life!👇🏼
.
1️⃣ Take your PANCE! You should be able to sign up within 90 days of graduating, so do it ASAP. Cost: $500
.
2️⃣ Apply for your desired state license(s) as soon as possible - if you can submit certain documents to the board *before* graduating/PANCE/etc. DO IT. I thought I had to wait to submit everything at once (lol 🤦🏻‍♀️), and this delayed my licenses. They keep a file for you, so submit as you go. Cost: ~$115-225 per state
.
👉🏼FYI: some states *require* employment for licensure (like VT!), so check into this too!
.
👉🏼extra tip: reach out to the state medical board to ask when they review medical licensing applications. Sometimes they’re only once a month, so try to get in all materials by that date! (Again, my bad 🙈)
.
3️⃣ Apply for your DEA(s) + NPI as soon as you receive your licenses. NPI usually takes under 24 hrs (15 min usually), but your DEA can be quick or take up to 6 weeks or more! Cost NPI: free, DEA: $731 per state
.
4️⃣ Stay on top of any + all credentialing paperwork for your employer. ALWAYS follow up with them to make sure you’re not missing anything! They may require background checks (common) + other miscellaneous documents (i.e. a copy of your undergrad diploma). Cost for background check/fingerprints: $73
.
5️⃣Consider a side gig after school. Expect a period of at least 3 months between graduation + work. I took out the max amount in loans my last semester, worked at an apple orchard 🍎 , babysat, and worked with collaborators to supplement my income during this time. I graduated at the end of August and started work at the end of October (as an MA while my stuff went though), but I’ve seen many friends have to wait around 4-5 months!
.
.
Be prepared to tackle each step as you go, but have fun along the way! You’ll be working for awhile 😉
.

I hope these tips were helpful! Feel free to add some below! 👇🏼.

I posted this last year and I ran across this post again. 
I know it seems like everyone is getting to their dreams faster than you are. 
You have put in the work but you aren’t seeing the results you want as fast as you want. But trust the timing of your life. Trust that everything is going to happen exactly when it’s supposed to. Don’t compare your journey to someone else’s. Even if it takes you longer than someone else. Even if it takes  longer than you originally planned. I can tell you personally there are some goals I haven’t reached yet and that’s ok. Keep going. Remember it’s not always about how fast you finish, as long as you finish. #yougotthis

FEELING GRATEFUL 🤗
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I feel like I’m in such a good headspace lately, and I’m beyond grateful. The last few weeks have truly been good to me. I’ve had opportunities to meet up with my mentees one-on-one and figure out how to best serve them. I’ve also been able to stay consistent with my training at the gym, but only somewhat consistent with my studies. 😅
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We’re getting close to the end of 2019, what’s one thing you can do today to make the last few weeks of this year as meaningful as possible? Let me know 🙌🏽.
